I am going to do it for my own sake, and thought it might be of some interest…… Besides, it gives me a place to store it.

The Rat Race - electric vs combustion is in full swing - however not very obvious if not looking for it. I will concentrate on QF contenders.

First out is Audi e-tron 55 Quattro. I don´t regard Tesla as a worthy contender to QF.


Edit:Sorry - marks does not come out in correct place on display.

Marks: QF e.tron Note:
0-100: 3.9 (3.6) vs 5.7s 10 8
Weight: 1880kg vs 2600kg 9 7
Power: 510bhp vs 402bhp. 10 8 QF: puts a smile on your face, when accelerating - always!
Range: 600 km vs 400km 8 6 e-tron: also 30 min. "fill up"
Quality impression/design 9 9 Yes I know: very subjective.
------------------
46 points 38 points e-tron 83%. Again - subjective
83% is to my mind a very good effort at first "serious" try.

I welcome a debate and any criticism. This was a "from the hip" effort.

The representation on your screen is not as I wrote it - it might take som dechiffering to understand.

If any interest, I will try to rectify.

New attempt.

All marks/points are my very subjective.

QF Points Audi Points Note
0-100 3.9(3.6)s 10 5.7s 8

Weight 1880kg 9 2600kg 7

Power 510bhp 10* 402bhp 8 *Puts a smile in your face,when accelerating - always!

Range 600km 8 400km 6* *Also 30 min. fiil-up.

Quality/design 9 9 Yes I know - very personal.


46 Points for QF - 38 Points for Audi. Audi 83%. Very good for first try.


Again - I welcome any input!

In todays Automotive News, Bill Ford is claiming a cross-over EV for next year, which "goes like hell" and has a resemblence to Mustang.

Again - the race is on! It is a strong tendency, that the Big Boys - with large EGO - Ford is borderline - goes for performance, while the not-so-big-boys goes for economy.

According to todays Automotive News, Porsche has revealed introduction of Taycan end of this year. Taycan is a supercar - much more expensive than QF, with 600bhp and 800 volts system - "STD" in industry is 400V.

What is more interesting: Macan will go all-electric in next version due out in about 2023. Also 800V system. Could be a QF killer, for those who can be without The Sound! :rotate:

You have forgotten to include cost of running, which is why most people buy electric.. (I presume??)

Good effort though, I like it!

PR, thanks.

This is not a complete Benchmarking, but just a first - off-hand - try. I know there are more attributes/characteristics to consider, but I just wanted to make it simple.

PR - second thought. I don`t think people buying a Stelvio QF- or similar - give much thought to cost of running - anyway, I did not.

That is, then, interesting: how will Big Boys convince those people to buy an electric performance SUV? And also: how will they be able to match QF handling, with a much heavier vehicle?

There is neglibel leaning in curves on QF - thanks to Torque Vectoring and rather stiff shocks. But with 2500 kg?

I expected one or two contenders to show up in Geneva - at least as concept vehicles - but no - no show.

EV-SUV:s might have a slight advantage with - relative - low CG, because of batteries installed at bottom, but will have a problem with heavy load on tyres.

Best bet will be new Macan - if they will abandon their El Cheapo Torque Vectoring and go for the QF system - who ever is producing it.
