This car is awesome in ev mode. Very quiet with excellent acceleration. It's even better in sport mode using the gas and electric engines. In hybrid mode, anytime you lift off the gas the engine shuts down, the car coasts effortlessly . There is a little engine noise on the highway but not too bad. Engine restart is quiet and vibration free. Sport seats are very comfortable with four way lumbar adjustments. Once you figure out the menus, bt connection with streaming works flawlessly. I only wish that there was more than about 23 miles in ev mode.
The ev range appears to be pretty much as advertised. upon starting a trip, you have the option of selecting ev only, hybrid, or maintain battery. If you trip is ~20miles, the ev only works well. If it is over ~20 miles, then selecting hybrid appears to net between 60 - 70 mpg. Running purely on gas it appears to be in the region of 40 - 45 mpg. The rid is pure Audi - very quick and secure. Other then the increased mpg, there is no difference between the feel of this car verses a pure gas version. The integration of the electric and gas engines is completely smooth - you can't tell when one starts and the other leaves off. Very well done!
