Audi made a gas powered car electric with no effort to make it as practical and efficient as possible. Not even in the same boat.

This is ground up hybrid, the i3 is all electric.

Audi and others are playing catchup to BMWi.

Wait until the fuel cell versions come... can run on hydrogen or natural gas and no longer use precious metals- all ceramics! There is a certain model that was spied running this system now
