As this month's cover story makes clear, the 2019 Audi e-tron is not an electric screamer. It doesn't redefine ludicrous 0-60-mph acceleration times every time you step on the accelerator. In fact, if you're used to a high-performance Tesla Model X, the e-tron feels decidedly neutered.

The overall e-tron package combines Audi's elegant and attractive exterior (that intentionally fits the brand's current design language), slightly tweaked for the electric powertrain, with an incredibly quiet cabin, even while cruising at 75 mph.
