It’s time for an AWESOME 4-car EV drag race!

Mat’s in the Audi e-tron GT and it’s facing off against the new Mercedes EQS, the Porsche Taycan 4S, and the Tesla Model S!

So, let’s see how they compare. Starting with Mat’s e-tron GT, it’s powered by two electric motors which deliver 523hp and 640Nm of torque. It's pretty heavy though, weighing in at 2,276kg. Next up is the Mercedes EQS. Sadly, we could only get the entry-level single motor version, so it’s just RWD and delivers 329hp and 568Nm. It’s got a HUGE battery though, so it weighs 2,480kg.

We then have the Taycan 4S, which is pretty much identical to the e-tron GT. As a result, it puts down 571hp & 650Nm, although it’s slightly lighter, weighing 2,220kg. Then finally we have the Model S. It’s also got two electric motors, and they combine to produce 605hp and 687Nm. It’s heavier than both the Audi and Porsche, however, weighing 2,290kg.

So, no prizes for guessing who the underdog is… But which do you think will snatch the win? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    It's weird having the EQS (single motor) compared with these cars on performance level in my opinion. Knowing the EQS is made for comfort and interior luxury, and not for sportive driving. 😅 Although it's here because it's in the same price category ... I guess. Still fun to watch tho. PS: pardon me if I made typos.
