In the US the MSRP is $74,800 for a 2019 e-tron Quattro Premium Plus. However, prices exclude $995 destination fee, taxes, title, other options and dealer charges. Dealer sets actual price. In Germany the Audi e-tron Quattro starts from €80,000, or around $92,500. Currently the car is available for pre-order.

Above is the E-Tron GT concept car. That is the one you are questioning about. It made its debut at the LA Auto Show. With current spec performance of 0–62.1 MPH in 3.5 seconds, 0–124.3 MPH in 12 seconds, and a range of 248 miles it should have more than adequate performance and range. Electric motors have 590 HP equivalent power. The GT may be the conservative member of the family. PB18 Concept has current spec of 0–62,1 in 2 seconds 300+ mile range and 15 minute recharge at an 800 volt charging station. From other pictures it looks only to have one seat though. It would be a street race car. They will also have an SUV. As that is already showing pricing on their web site and they are taking reservations, it is closer to market than the other two. One third of Audi offerings will be electric by 2025. Audi will not be the only other competition for Tesla. More info is at Audi e-tron | The first purely electric SUV from Audi | Audi USA
Is Tesla the best option for an electric car or should I wait for more choices from different car manufacturers? I understand this question as “will in near future a competitor offer more bang for the buck”? And the answer is - no. Note: the answer was written in April 2019. Read the update at the end. Currently the Tesla Model 3 is the market leader. Soon it will be accompanied by the Model Y. If you are looking Hyundai (Kona), Kia (e-Niro), Nissan (Leaf 2.0 and Leaf 2.0 Plus) or Chevrolet (Bolt), for the same money they offer less. The first two also have delivery problems. Audi e-Tron and Jaguar i-Pace need rapid chargers that are capable to charge with a speed of at least 100 kW, the e-Tron can make usage of 175 kW - chargers which are currently still very uncommon. Once installed, they will quite likely offer electricity at a higher price than Tesla. Porsche Cayman will be able to use 350 kW chargers, but Porsche didn’t demonstrate a single charging session (update: it can charge at up to 270 kW, but only for a few minutes). Tesla recently introduced the Supercharger V3 which enables to use 250 kW and that one will be rolled out across the USA in 2019 (late 2019 also in Europe). Jaguar i-Pace, Audi e-Tron and Mercedes Benz EQC may offer more luxurious interiors, but they offer a far inferior long range capability. Model S and X are still champions in their class. Let’s not forget - all competitors mentioned before are more “thirsty” than Teslas. Focusing more on design than performance almost all of them need 15 –30% more energy than comparing Teslas. Very soon Tesla will update the Model S P100DL (now called Ludicrous Performance) which puts the Taycan in the bag in performance, it should charge in about the same time after the upgrade - while still probably being significantly cheaper. I like the Taycan styling too, but I would really want to know if you would be willing to pay a 20% premium just because of the styling. And Tesla Roadster 2, where the styling is just a matter of personal taste will wipe away with any competition. VW will come with a I.D. / NEO which should supposedly be a cheaper platform, but it will probably offer less and actually compete with cars that even today are not on par in technology (Nissan Leaf 2.0 40 kWh, Hyundai Kona 39 kWh). With batteries that will offer the same range as the current standard (60 kWh and above) I highly doubt that they will be competitive to Tesla Model 3 and Model Y in price. So in essence, I don’t see any competition coming which would be a better choice in the foreseeable future. Not 2019, not 2020 and quite likely not in 2021 either. Update, February 2021 This answer was written in April 2019. Now we have 2021 and yes, there are several alternatives, already available or expected at some moment in 2021. Tesla Model 3 Tesla Model Y Tesla Model S Tesla Model X Audi e-tron BMW iX3 Mercedes EQC Polestar 2 and its cousin Volvo XC40 Volkswagen ID.4 and (on the same platform) Skoda Enyaq Ford Mustang Mach-E Nissan Ariya Hyundai IONIQ 5 Most of them are coming in different battery sizes and a standard (or optional) 4WD. Not to mention some smaller EVs: Volkswagen ID.3 (in 3 battery sizes), the “triplets” (same technology, but different design) Peugeot e-208 / Peugeot e-2008 SUV / Opel Corsa-e , the still decent, albeit slightly dated (for their class) Korean triplets Hyundai Kona Electric , Kia e-Soul and Kia e-Niro and the updated Hyundai IONIQ Electric , BMW i3 and Renault Zoe ZE50 , commuters and cars for short road trips. I don’t mention city cars since they are in a totally different league. You can look them up in the EV Database . Everybody has to decide where he will want to drive since Tesla still has a significant advantage when it comes to road trips. Supercharger | Tesla is far better than Electrify America or IONITY EU , not to mention that Teslas can use the competing charging network (if needed) either directly or with an adapter (in USA) - it doesn’t work vice versa since other manufacturers refuse to pay a fee to Tesla. Another point is software and online software updates (which only some competitors offer) and the Autopilot, which may not be at Tesla’s level. Tesla is also still leading in efficiency, generally also in range and in most cases also in charging speed (added range in 15–20 minutes). But yes, alternatives are here. Some good, other only decent, but yes, now customers have choices, especially if they are willing to get into Tesla’s price range. Back in 2019, there were (almost) none. For new updates as they will come, read in the comments section.
Yes, I think it’s inevitable that EVs will become the most common vehicle type in the US. The transition will take time, but it’s inevitable. As an EV driver, I find that the convenience of plugging in at home is just too great. The only barrier is cost and the availability of EVs in certain categories, like the pickup truck and off road vehicles. Cost is coming down, charging infrastructure is building out, and the number of models available is increasing rapidly. In fact there are so many new EVs out there, it’s hard to keep track. Here are some on sale today: Tesla: Model S, Model X, Model 3, Model Y MINI SE Porsche Taycan (2 models)  Audi e-tron (3 models) Peugeot E-208  XPeng E7 MG ZS BMW i3 Chevrolet Bolt Honda Clarity Electric, E Nissan Leaf (multiple models)  Fiat 500e  Ford Mustang MACH E (available for ordering)  Volkswagen e-Golf, e-UP Kia Niro, Soul EV Hyundai KONA, Ioniq  Jaguar i-Pace Mercedes EQC Polestar 2 If I omitted something, leave a comment. Yes, I know not all of them area available in the US.
