One other data point to consider is that the car Bjorn tested with had 19 inch wheels. The 21 inch wheel option (or Edition One in my case) will probably take another 5+% range hit (based on EPA data from Tesla vehicles).

Yes, larger wheels will hurt consumption numbers, but might be even with the snow tires In Bjorn's estimate. BTW EA started construction on 3 charging locations in WA so far this week.

They could program the system to charge to a higher level, but only when the car is on rollers.

I was eating dinner when I read that reply, I almost fell off my chair laughing. I hope the E-Tron passes USA emissions.
