A nice trip report from Marc Noordeloos from

Marc Says:

The e-tron feels quite big and heavy around town, with pretty much zero inherent sportiness. But on the highway, the electric SUV feels solid, and is extremely quiet and relaxing. It brought to mind a lifted Audi A8 more than anything.

Our take:

It is good to see EV trip reports from popular media.  This report goes into details of the planning involved for the trip.  Also Marc compared EV driving experience with his past test drives.  A great read!
