The new Audi e-tron 50 quattro is now open for ordering with on-the-road-pricing starting from £59,900. The model introduces the S line trim to the e-tron range as well as a new entry-level Technik trim. The S line trim enhances the Sport trim with 21-inch alloy wheels, S line exterior bumpers and Sport seats with S embossing.
The Audi e-tron 50 quattro will complement the existing e-tron 55 quattro model. Its smaller 71 kWh battery and two electric motors provide for a range of up to 186 miles according to the WLTP test cycle, and its 120kW charging capability facilitates recharging to 80 per cent capacity in around 30 minutes at fast-charging stations. The entry level model features 'e-quattro' all-wheel-drive delivered by an electric motor mounted on each axle – in this application these generate a combined total of 230 kW and 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque, and are capable of propelling the electric SUV from 0 to 62mph in 7.0 seconds on the way to an electronically governed top speed of 118mph.
This system regulates the temperature of the interior as well as the battery and cools the electric motors, the power electronics and the charger. In this way it ensures that the high-voltage components enjoy a long service life and enables fast charging with direct current (DC).
