How does that compare to the Porsche Taycan? For the Taycan 4S, we measured a consumption rate of 32.3 kWh/100 miles. So that same 273 miles in the Taycan 4S would have cost $29.10 in Hawaii and $8.82 in Idaho. You'd save a few bucks with the Taycan, especially where electricity prices are higher, but the difference isn't really enough to recommend one over the other.
How about a gasoline-powered rival? Consider the sporty V8-powered hatchback alternative in Audi's lineup, the 2021 Audi RS 7, which is priced in the same ballpark. Running the RS 7 for 273 miles on premium fuel would have set us back $72.91 in Hawaii ($4.54 per gallon) and $66.64 in Idaho ($4.15 per gallon) at current prices, assuming we got the RS 7's 17 mpg combined.
Based on these numbers, you could save an estimated $1,605 per year in Hawaii and a whopping $2,118 per year in Idaho in fuel costs driving an Audi e-tron GT for 10,000 miles a year instead of the RS 7. However, you should really hear what the RS 7's V8 sounds like before deciding it's not worth the premium.

The 2022 Audi e-tron GT may not be quite as efficient as its Taycan sibling, but it still manages to deliver an admirable 273 miles of real-world range in ideal weather conditions. It should be noted that opting for larger wheels or sportier tires will have a negative impact on range, so that's something to keep in mind when speccing out your performance EV.
