Audi unveiled the all-electric e-tron sports utility vehicle this week, the brand’s first pure EV. It’s been nearly a decade since the company’s exhilarating electric R8 sports car was introduced—and three years since the battery-powered e-tron Quattro concept was first shown. Those vehicles generated a lot of excitement among auto enthusiasts and EV fans alike. But the e-tron that was revealed in San Francisco this week was aimed at wider appeal.

The race for big-battery EVs now includes the Chevy Bolt and Hyundai Kona EV (both with 64 kWh packs), as well as 95 kilowatt-hour batteries carried by the Jaguar I-Pace and Porsche Taycan. These big-battery EVs solve the range problem by providing as much as 300 miles of driving on a single charge. However, it is now dawning on automakers and analysts that bigger is not always better when it comes to EV batteries.
