A meticulously planned trip to Chicago from Michigan. The e-tron feels quite big and heavy around town, with pretty much zero inherent sportiness. But on the highway, the electric SUV feels solid and is extremely quiet and relaxing is what the report says

Days before departing, I confirmed that utilizing the Electrify America DC fast-charger in Mishawaka, Indiana, was indeed the best option, bumping the 214-mile direct route to Lake Forest up to 245 miles. The e-tron’s navigation system and the My Audi iPhone app agreed with this strategy. But on the morning of my departure, the app changed its mind and told me to stop at a random, slower 50-kW DC fast-charger at a 7-Eleven outside Chicago.
