Honestly, the only electric car I would purchase at the moment is a Tesla. I wouldn't even look at the E-tron, iPace or EQC, they just seem severely lacking and incredibly expensive.

Check the E-Tron forums regarding customer experience at Electrify America, it isn't pleasant. Many chargers don't go the advertised rates, plugs are getting stuck in cars, many plugs don't end up working, placement doesn't work with charging location on certain vehicles, and many people have cancelled trips or taken their gas cars because they don't trust their car to make it far enough to a working station (and many don't seem to work properly).

Honestly, other than Tesla's Superchargers, the whole non-Tesla ecosystem for charging seems pretty half baked to me.

One long time Audi owner even wrote a break up letter regarding his poor E-tron experience and lack of support from Audi Corporate. And many of his experiences seem similar to what others have been reporting. I know forums typically emphasize issues further to what they actually are, but honestly, the E-Tron just seems like a bit of a failure from Audi, and Electrify America doesn't seem to be helping either.
