Performance anxiety

I've ordered an ID.4 Style pro. Due to do a few reasons only just ordered. However I'm already feeling performance anxiety and wondering if I should have ordered the pro performance. Half of the problem is I've only been able to test drive the performance model so it's hard to tell if I'd be happy with just Pro.
Has anybody driven/owned both and can give a comparison?
I've currently got an Audi A4 2.0litre petrol and that's got more than enough power for what I need. I'm struggling to be able to compare the power to the EV equivalents. It's very very much a family car, 80% of my driving will have 4 of us in it, so I'm not going to be racing around but I consider myself a confident and relatively quick driver.

Our Pure 52 is even slower at 10.9 and to be honest it's fine. You end up using all of the acceleration quite often, but it's not like it makes more noise and ruins refinement like a petrol car.
How are you finding that impacts efficiency?

I've now had experience of the Born, ID3 and Q4 40 which are all the 200bhp motors so you don't need to use too much throttle to get moving.

Not that it matters as we won't be using our ID4 52kWh pure for many if any long journeys as that'll be the Tesla's job, but would be nice to know. I think from memory in the Q4 we got around 3.2 to 3.6mi/kWh typically on long motorway/A road journeys. We had it in the winter months and it had software 2.3 installed.
