Behind the Wheel of the Audi e-tron Electric Sports Car
There have been all kinds of reports slamming electric cars as "soul-less" and worse in the motoring media. Both ordinary transportation as represented by quadricycles like the REVA and high performance sportsters like the Tesla Roadster have found themselves criticized along this vein. Perhaps, the scribes and television hosts who rushed into judgment were a little too quick off the mark. There were early fossil fuel cars that were not particularly enjoyable to drive and I recall my own Premier Padmini and Maruti van in India - both utter pigs to drive and will all the sophistication of a rusted hammer and anvil set, and with filthy exhausts to boot. Now, with the Audi e-Tron sportscar, we have a journalist from Robb Report, a magazine for wealthy buyers of very high grade products, come away impressed. Remember that this is a magazine for people who would otherwise buy Lamborghinis or Aston Martins, and you have to sit up and take note.
Hopefully, this is a trend that will accelerate in the future. You'll see this blog follow these trends!
