Electric has gone Audi.

Audi has entered a whole new era of mobility and the greatly anticipated Audi e-tron represents the striking face of the future, now a reality in the present. Being our first fully battery electric vehicle, the Audi e-tron is the very pinnacle of automotive technology; with all of the performance, luxury and appointment that are trademarks of the Audi brand. Driven by two-electric motors producing 265kW of power (up to 300kW with boost), a new electric quattro all-wheel drive and a superbly finished interior fit for four adults and their luggage, the e-tron continues Audi’s skill of combining engaging performance with practicality and uncompromising luxury.

Charged with excitement

As with all Audi models, performance is at the very heart of the new e-tron, but here it is generated purely by electricity. Its two electric motors – one attached to the front and one the rear axle – provide the silent, almost instantaneous drive, delivering 265kW of power (up to 300kW with boost) and a massive 664Nm of torque. This sees the battery electric vehicle race from stop to 100km/h in just 5.7 seconds on its way to an electronically governed top speed of 200km/h. Maximum performance with zero emissions.

Electrifying design

Immediately identifiable as an Audi, the new e-tron nevertheless is defined by its own distinct style. Sleek, elegant and designed with superior aerodynamics, the e-tron’s styling is not only eye-catching, but with the optional ground-breaking virtual mirrors, drag is greatly reduced improving overall range by up to 40km in distance. The familiar octagonal Singeframe dominates the front end, its vertical struts and platinum grey surround identifying it as an e-tron model. The Matrix LED lights too display their own e-tron signature - the four horizontal struts in the daytime running lights mirroring the e-tron specific design of the alloy wheels. The unique light signature is echoed at the sculptured rear, with its long roof edge spoiler and distinctive absence of exhaust pipes.

A new generation of quattro

Unbelievable surefootedness and handling regardless of the conditions come courtesy of a new, fully battery electric generation of Audi quattro. Blindingly fast, the system regulates the optimum amount of torque required between the two axles for maximum traction, constantly monitoring the driving situation and grip and responding in as little as 30 milliseconds to detected changes.

Without the need to engage a clutch, the battery electric vehicle all-wheel drive is faster than conventional quattro, and, combined with the e-tron’s low centre of gravity and perfect axle load distribution (thanks to the low placement of the battery and drive components), the Audi e-tron exhibits extraordinary composure and handling in all conditions regardless of speed.

Details make the difference

The contemporary, flowing design continues in the e-tron’s interior; its sweeping dashboard adding to the feeling of space and housing the two large MMI touch screens and the Audi virtual cockpit. The touch screens, which feature haptic and audio feedback, do away with the need for traditional dials and switches, creating a clean and streamlined interior environment while still placing control of the e-tron’s myriad vehicle systems and infotainment literally at the driver’s fingertips. This functionality combined with voice command and multi-function steering wheel allow the driver to remain completely in control while still remaining completely focused on the road ahead.
