2019 Audi e-tron vs 2018 Tesla Model X

Proudly Serving Brentwood, TN

Driving the Audi e-Tron up alongside the Tesla Model X, you have two SUVs battling it out for dominance of the market. Which one wears the crown? We're going to examine the different features and look at which electric vehicle does a better job. When comparing the two brands, both of them have solid reputations for building dependable and value-packed vehicles.

The Engine: Who Has a Better Car?

The Audi e-Tron SUV took a long time in development, and when the brand finally took the wraps off the vehicle, you felt like you had a solid SUV. By contrast, Tesla has been a futuristic automaker that has done a good job of staying ahead of the curve when it comes to electric and hybrid vehicles. When you compare the two motors, the e-Tron has a 95 kWh battery. This shows superiority considering how the Tesla Model X only has a 75 kWh. Both of the SUVs use a dual electric motor. The Audi e-Tron runs its top speed at 124 miles per hour, while the Tesla Model X tops out at 130 miles per hour, which isn't a deal-breaking difference. In terms of power, the Audi e-Tron accelerates from zero to 60 in 5.5 seconds while the Tesla Model X runs from zero to 60 in 6.0 seconds. The e-Tron has a better charge time where you can recharge the battery in 30 minutes. You have the regenerative braking that helps this vehicle to get more from its battery. If you've ever looked at hybrids, some of them get better gas mileage in city driving than highway driving because of the regenerative braking.

What Does the Interior Look Like?

Sit in the Audi e-Tron and then sit in the Tesla Model X, and you find the experience pleasant no matter which one you choose. However, the Audi, an automaker known for its luxurious interiors, still outperforms the Tesla Model X in some respects. The ride in the Audi feels like comfort and class all rolled into a single vehicle. Like with the Tesla Model X, you have heated and cooled seating, and you also receive a massage feature to calm you down on those drives where you're stuck in rush hour traffic with miles and miles of drivers laying heavily on the horns. You can relax and live the good life even while everyone else is spazzing out and hoping to get home sooner—sometimes you just have to go with the flow. The e-Tron also includes a 10-inch touchscreen, and they have a separate screen that looks at the vehicle functions like air conditioning and heating.

Which SUV will Turn More Heads?

The Audi e-Tron definitely has a unique appearance that will leave people saying, "Hey! Look at that car!" Audi continues on with its famous legacy of using a large grille, which many of the traditional Audi fans will love because even as an electric vehicle, the company has remained loyal to its branding. On the other hand, you have the Tesla Model X, which is a pioneer of its segment. The design of this vehicle looks equally breathtaking, but the Falcon Wing Door feature will be a polarized feature where you either love it or hate it. Some will think it looks awesome while others would rather go with a more conservative approach in design like the Audi e-Tron. Its looks are classically handsome.
