With its combination of electric drive and a comfortable, sophisticated interior, the Audi e-tron creates a new sense of mobility. Whether parking, in the city or on long journeys, the Audi e-tron makes life easier for its driver in many situations. The full-size SUV combines sportiness and everyday practicality. Its two electric motors together with electric all-wheel drive provide for awesome performance and agile handling. The large high-voltage battery is the foundation for a sufficient range. In combination with a comprehensive range of charging options for home and on the move, you can enjoy fully electric driving without having to compromise.
Introducing our first ever, all-electric car: the new Audi e-tron. Everything you’d expect of an Audi, powered entirely by electricity. With its stunning, aerodynamic body and elegant, luxurious cabin, the Audi e-tron certainly has a unique presence. Driven entirely by two electric motors that produce up to 300kW (or 408PS) of power harnessed by quattro all-wheel-drive, it heralds a new era. Not just for those seeking the benefits of electric mobility, but for everyone who demands the driving experience of an Audi.
There are twelve colors to choose from for the Audi e-tron, including the exclusive option of Antigua blue. The e-tron logo on the electric charging flap and optionally the brake calipers stand out in the high-voltage signal color orange. The wheel arch trims and sills are in a contrasting color, to emphasize the off-road look.
It begins with a streamlined body that not only gives the Audi e-tron a dramatic appearance; flowing contours, aided by optional virtual wing mirrors, lend it exceptional aerodynamics that promote efficiency and an almost silent drive. And, while the octagonal grille clearly marks it as an Audi SUV, special e-tron details, such as a unique light signature, ensures it stands apart.
Step inside and you’ll see that the e-tron’s modern, uncluttered design accentuates the cabin’s spaciousness. Unlike conventional models, there’s no centre tunnel that impedes space. Customisable virtual cockpit, discrete touch-screens with haptic feedback, voice-command controls and an unobtrusive centre console allow for a clear, expansive dashboard. Finished with first-class materials and with almost total noise insulation, the experience for up to 5 passengers is one of supreme comfort and luxury.
With the Audi e-tron, electric efficiency sacrifices nothing to performance; an electric motor at the front and one at the rear jointly produce 300kW of power, propelling this full-sized SUV from 0-62mph in less than 6 seconds. Unlike a combustion-powered vehicle, the acceleration response is almost instant, providing a thrilling sensation at launch.
The e-tron goes the distance too, with a range of 248 miles* on a single charge under stringent test conditions. Recharging is possible in a number of flexible ways: at home, via a domestic socket or, for a reduced charging time, with a specially fitted wallbox; or on the road, via high-power charging stations. Where available, the e-tron can be replenished at 150kW terminals that can recharge the battery to 80% within 30 minutes and 100% within 50 minutes.
Electric power isn’t the only innovation you’ll find within the new Audi e-tron; it also has an array of advanced, intelligent features and options for extra comfort and confidence on every trip.
Beginning with pre sense 360°, the e-tron constantly monitors your surroundings and can initiate protective measures if needed. Rear cross traffic assist, Crossing assist and Turn assist all detect and help evade unexpected hazards you may not have noticed. Adaptive cruise assist keeps you a safe distance from vehicles in front. And Efficiency assist monitors the route ahead to help preserve power. Just a few examples of the Audi e-tron’s extraordinary intelligence.
For the first time in an Audi production car, the Audi e-tron has the option of virtual wing mirrors. They replace traditional glass mirrors with cameras that stream a view of what’s behind, onto displays mounted within the front doors. Far narrower than standard mirrors, they not only reduce drag, but also help cut the already impressively low wind noise. What’s more, their view is fully adjustable. Focus can be zoomed and moved depending on driving conditions; the result is better all-round visibility and enhanced safety for car and passengers.
As well as sensing your immediate surroundings, the Audi e-tron uses the networked intelligence of Audi connect to help you plan trips further afield.
Seamlessly, via the in-car MMI system, the MyAudi smartphone app, or desktop web portal, the e-tron offers a range of Audi connect systems, including the e-tron route planner. It calculates routes showing charging stations, shows their estimated charge times and incorporates these with traffic data to calculate your arrival time. With this easily-planned charging schedule, the e-tron is as suitable for longer trips as it is for everyday use.
