I know what it is. And that's the only type of e-tron I want.

I agree with you that the Taycan mules don't look as good as the original Mission E concept. A little disappointing. I think it will wind up looking better than the mules we have seen (like a baby Panamera) but the concept was drop-dead gorgeous.

I think the Mission E Cross Turismo concept is a little "aesthetically challenged." In that case, I hope the production version looks better than the concept!

On the other hand, the E Tron GT looks pretty close to production-ready. And quite stunning.

So you get to sit inside the warming hut while your car charges? Smart.

I flew from Munich to Berlin this afternoon. Audi has a HUGE E-Tron display in between terminals 1 & 2 and there are E-tron SUVs driving all over the place in Munich. They look fantastic and I'd take one over a Tesla ANY day!!

Unfortunately I didn't. I was in a rush to make my flight from Munich to Berlin so I didn't even think of getting pics.

Last time I was in Berlin (Dad stationed in Germany) was early 1984. I am sure it has changed a little bit since then...

(I've been to Germany since then but haven't made it back to Berlin yet.) Sounds like a great trip!
