In my opinion, E-Tron's has a serious competitor in face of BMW EV autos such as i Series. BMW has already made a great job with their electric vehicles and it will be really hard for Audi to rival with such a serious EV market player.

Considering E-Tron and 'i' models, it seems like BMW is more focused on the electric concept while Audi wants to save their original model more than fully integrate it to a future of car business. Of course, E-Tron and i models are not the direct competitors, however, both cars are aimed to hit the same price range.

Wheels Magazine has already compared Audi A3 E-Tron and BMW i3. Check it out and write your comment under:wink:

I would go with Audi simply because of how much better it looks compared to the i3. The i3 has nice pillarless doors and more pizazz, but the E-tron seems like a better daily driver and a more versatile car.

I'm a bit different, looks don't matter as much, but more so the cost of ownership. Living in the city it will be much cheaper to insure the A3 E-Tron than the i3, after all look how long those A3's have been produced for. That's one thing I fear with these one off EV designs.

I kinda have the same perception about current electric vehicles. More and more car makers introduce their EV models, but a lot of them look too futuristic for me. I really like electric vehicle concept, but I don't want to drive a space ship. The best option for me would be a classic design car with a battery under the hood, so I give my vote to Audi in this comparison.

Glad to see that someone else here shares a similar view point and its that take on these cars that might have me going to BMW because right now they have plans to release 12 EV models by 2023. If you know this industry you will know that entails a lot of crossover of parts. X3 EV and 3-Series EV are a couple that should share a lot of drivetrain and powertrain components.
