    Wow pretty lousy numbers for A4 at only 34k in the US, the biggest market in the world for those cars. How many model 3 reservations in the US? Maybe 200,000. And Q7 only 30k, model X should catch and pass that this year. 18k model x in the US last year. For A6-A8, model S out sold them in the US as well. Not bad for such a young car company. And that is compared to record sales.

    Wow, rare to see a manufacturer bending over for a rival to this degree, they must be REALLY SCARED:)
    I can bet you the guy who signed for that billboard is now collecting unemployment until his next job.

    Seems relevant in this thread:



    Audi SQ7 (top version) vs. Model X 100D (not P)

    Hopefully any future Audi E-whatever will do better.

    Wow, .1 seconds slower but 4 mph faster. Let me guess how long it will take for the Audi to overtake... :rolleyes:
    Sorry to say, but these kinds of videos are exactly what convince BEV haters that their ICE is still superior. Because what does it matter that the Model X can barely keep ahead for the first few hundred yards, when after that the SQ7 will keep blasting on along the Autobahn while the Model X is being power-restricted in order to protect the motor/battery?
    Oh and did anyone mention that the SQ7 starts at 91K Euro while the X 100D starts at 115K Euro, a mere 24K Euro (!) difference.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd take the X anytime, but these drag race comparison videos always annoy me, because they take away from what makes a Tesla so great. That it is a long-range, zero-emission, viable first car replacement. Awesome acceleration sure is cool, but in everyday driving, other aspects are far more important.

    Audi ad is purely Audi market spoiling (as all the german manufacturers are doing) as this is the only strategy left to them as they have belatedly realised the damage that Tesla is doing to their sales.

    All it says is want Musk(sic Tesla) ev? then dont buy but wait for the upcoming Audi.

    aka anything they can do to stop people buying Tesla, however grubby they will.
