My father bought 1 of these a few months ago and I drove it around over Christmas. The car is pretty nice, but honestly a perfect example of everything wrong with the direction Audi, Benz and BMW are going with their electric cars. BMW is a little better with their i series cars, but otherwise, this car is s perfect example of why trying to fit an electric power train into a modular frame is not going to compete with ground up electric cars. The range is not comparable to Tesla, the speed is not comparable to Tesla (or ICE cars in the same general price range). It's too heavy and too compromised to compete with cars engineered to be electric only. The interior is at least generally up to snuff with luxury standards (unlike Tesla), although there were a few too many soft touch areas that were vinyl instead of leather for my taste considering the price (almost $90k for a prestige trim)
