Talking Cars (MP3)

The all-new Q4 e-tron is Audi's third EV model, and we share our first impressions of its driving characteristics, tech-heavy interior, whether the 240 miles range will be enough for most drivers, and how it compares to the Tesla Model Y, Genesis GV60, and Ford Mustang Mach-E. We also share some important tips to avoid buying a car that has been in a flood.
