Highlights

Powerful dynamic with electric drive.

Two electric motors drive the Audi e-tron powerfully. They quickly accelerate the electric SUV from zero to 100 km/h. The start-off performance is comparable to that of a sports car. The new electric all-wheel drive system provides optimal traction and handling in all driving situations. Thus, the Audi e-tron is not only pracitcal for everyday use, but also very manoeuvrable and agile when driving off-road.

The quattro drive can be switched on as required – the results are a situation-specific torque distribution, flexible control of the axle moments and fun to drive on any terrain.

Sporty character.

A key factor for the sporty character and outstanding transverse dynamics is the low and central position at which the drive components are installed. The high-voltage battery system is optimally matched to the dimensions of the Audi e-tron and is located between the axles in the form of a flat, broad block beneath the passenger compartment. That makes the Audi e-tron’s center of gravity similar to that of a sedan. Axle load distribution is perfectly balanced at almost 50:50.

Long-distance range.

The long-distance range is due primarily to the innovative recuperation system, which is responsible for up to 30 percent of the range. In well over 90 percent of the time, the electric SUV recuperates solely via the electric motors. In combination with a new electrohydraulic actuation concept, that Audi uses as the first car manufacturer worldwide in a series production vehicle with electric drive, the electric SUV systematically exploits its maximum recuperation potential.

Smart energy recovery.

In addition to manually adjusting the recuperation level with the steering wheel paddles, you can also select automatic mode in the MMI. The predictive efficiency assist then regulates the deceleration as needed and predictively, for example in relation to the route or vehicles in front. You can adapt the deceleration effect by selecting the desired recuperation level via the shift paddles. It remains active until you operate the accelerator pedal again.

Exclusive off-road look.

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.

Features & Design

Electrification visualized: the front.

Typically for one of the brand’s SUV models, the Audi e-tron bears the octagonal-design Singleframe grille with vertical struts. Its corpus is largely enclosed and presented in platinum gray – identifying it as a fully electric model.

At the lower edge of the Matrix LED headlights, four horizontal struts create the e-tron-specific signature in the daytime running lights. For the first time this is integrated directly into the headlights – another exclusive design feature for the all-electric drive system. Light is used as a core design feature.

Muscular body: the side view.

The wrap-around shoulder line is an important design element in the side view. It extends from the headlights, along the flanks, to the rear lights, giving the Audi e-tron a low visual center of gravity. The roof stretches low across the muscular body, which displays clear SUV attributes with its brawny D-pillars and the underbody protection.

The quattro blisters over the wheels hint at the electric all-wheel drive. The sill area is boldly contoured and visualizes with the black inserts on the door trim the location of the battery and thus the energy center of the Audi e-tron.

Battery test.

The cell modules in the Audi e-tron can reproducibly discharge and charge electricity over a broad temperature and charge status window. Their cell chemistry makes them able to withstand higher thermal loads and less reactive than round cells, so that even if severely damaged the risk of fire is minimal.

Fast charging.

There is generally no need to stop at charging stations during everyday driving. On long trips, such as when going on vacation, customers can use fast charging stations to charge with direct current (DC) at up to 150 kW – a first for series-production automobiles. This means that the Audi e-tron is all set for the next long-distance stretch of a journey in approximately half an hour. The electric SUV can also be recharged with alternating current (AC) at up to 11 kW; recharging with 22 kW is available as an option.

Details make the difference.

With the Audi e-tron, Audi Design has translated the brand’s fundamental design language for the electric age, both inside and out. New, stylistically defining details, such as the special daytime running light signature, the electric charging flap, the lack of exhaust pipes, and stitching on the seats reminiscent of an electric circuit board, transmit a clear signal that the Audi e-tron is fully electric. A design highlight of the Audi e-tron are its optional virtual side mirrors.

Technology

Intelligent solutions for home and on the move: the charging concepts.

Audi offers various solutions for charging at home. The standard mobile charging system can be used with either a 230 volt household outlet or a 400 volt three-phase outlet. The optional “connect” charging system doubles the charging power to as much as 22 kW.

Combined with a home energy management system, it offers intelligent functions such as charging when electricity is less expensive or with solar electricity if the home is equipped with a photovoltaic system. You can control all charging processes as well as pre-heating/pre-cooling via your smartphone with the myAudi app.

Full control in the Audi virtual cockpit.

With the Audi virtual cockpit, you have the most important data at a glance and can display e-tron-specific services: for example, the current battery level, the remaining range and driving time as well as the distance travelled. In the Audi MMI, you can program a timer for charging the e-tron battery and an individual charging target at any time.

Feature title

For the first time in a volume-production car, virtual exterior mirrors are available as an option in the Audi e-tron. They not only provide a new technology experience, but also many practical benefits in terms of comfort and safety. Integrated into the hexagonal end of their flat supports is a small camera, whose images are digitally processed and displayed on high-contrast, 1200 x 800-pixel OLED displays in the transition between the instrument panel and the door.

The 7-inch displays, whose brightness adjusts automatically, are equipped with proximity sensors. If the driver moves their finger toward the surface, symbols are activated with which the driver can move the image. A switching function allows the driver to also adjust the virtual passenger-side mirror.

Relaxed driving with intelligent assistants.

Numerous assist systems make the drive even more relaxing, including the standard efficiency assist. With predictive tips in the Audi virtual cockpit and automatic recuperation, it helps you to drive economically. In combination with the adaptive cruise assist, the efficiency assist can also brake and accelerate the electric SUV predictively. Backing the assist systems is the central driver assistance controller, which continuously computes an exact model of the environment.

Light-flooded interior with first-class air quality.

In addition to its spaciousness, the standard of comfort and convenience of the Audi e-tron is what you would expect from a typical full-size model of the brand. The panoramic glass sunroof keeps the interior even lighter and intensifies the impression of airiness and space.

As an alternative to the standard two-zone automatic air conditioning, Audi also offers four-zone automatic air conditioning and the air quality package. The latter maintains first-class air quality by means of an ionizer and aromatization, the intensity of which can be adjusted over several levels. The air quality sensor also detects harmful gases and activates recirculated air mode as necessary.

Performance, intelligence and lightness.

Design and technology are fused into one: A generous arc, the wraparound, envelops the cascading instrument panel with pronounced horizontal lines as far round as the sculptural door trims. It harmoniously integrates the hood above the Audi virtual cockpit, whose sleek display stands visually free in space, as well as the displays of the optional virtual exterior mirrors. The navigation system makes intelligent destination suggestions based on previous routes – so every appointment becomes a success.
