The Audi E Tron has been one of the most anticipated electric SUVs entering the market since its unveiling last year. It is both Audi’s entry into the electric car market as well as part of the Volkswagen Group’s plan to produce 22 million electric cars within the next decade. Love it or hate it, the Audi E Tron marks a major shifting point into our all-electric future.
After some delay, deliveries have officially begun in Europe. We expected to see the Audi’s electric SUV hit the U.S. in May but it seems someone was able to get their hands on one early. The E Tron is still not available for sale in the U.S. but clearly Audi is preparing for the masses.
The E Tron will have a base price of $74,000 and will compete alongside the Tesla Model X, Mercedes EQC, BMW iX3, and Jaguar I-Pace. It’s 94 kWh battery gives it a range of 204 miles. As is with all electric cars, performance beats the ICE competition. This electric SUV has a 0-60 of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph. For a short moment, the E Tron actually held the fastest charging capabilities available at 150 kW. That achievement was recently passed when Tesla announced 250 kW charging with Supercharger V3 but it’s still impressive nonetheless.
