This issue that the eTron as well as the iPace face is that they are Full time AWD BEVs not FWD like the LEAF or partial AWD like the Tesla Dual Motor cars. With that FT AWD ability to have on road and off road abilities comes a mileage penalty.
Besides the weight and Cd not having been key parameters to optimize or of major concern, as would be of concern in a Leaf design
given the lower capacity batteries.

#2 Leaf SL MY 12/18: 10.3K miles, SOH 109Ahrs/115Ahrs, 5.2 miles/kWh (average), DOD > 20%, temp < 105F
