As you may have seen, our Content Team recently spent an evening getting to know Audi’s new electric SUV, the Audi e-tron (if you haven’t read their review, take a look here). Alongside that article, the evening spawned no end of amazing images that we just couldn’t fit onto that page but couldn’t keep hidden in our photography vault. Welcome then, to a stunning gallery that pays tribute to what is arguably one the best electric cars of 2019.
Styling wise, the Audi e-tron is more reserved than many of the space age, almost concept looking, electric cars that we’ve seen over recent years and that’s not a bad thing. It’s actually quite refreshing and, for many, serves to make the e-tron somewhat more approachable.
That’s not to say that the e-tron is a boring thing to look at, because it really isn't; it's a stunning looking thing. Hard lines and fairly wide arches give the e-tron a very sporty stance whilst some interesting use of the lights and rear light bar work to add some wow and drama.
Moving on from the styling – as you can see that in the pictures – let’s talk drive. The Audi e-tron boasts 402hp and 490lb ft of torque from a 95kWh lithium-ion battery that feeds its power to a motor on each axle. Offering instant torque and acceleration, the result is stunning and it’s actually quite incredible how quickly it takes off, especially when you consider the e-tron’s size and weight.
Range wise, the Audi e-tron is good for 237 miles on a single charge but can extend that number through the use of clever energy saving technology and brake regeneration. Accepting 150kW DC fast charging, e-tron can be charged to 80% in just 30 minutes.
As with the rest of the Audi range, the interior is a beautiful place to be. Despite all of the technology on offer, it’s also a very easy place to be, mainly thanks to the clarity of all of the displays; you’re never given too much information.
The car on this shoot had the optional Virtual Side Mirrors, meaning two additional screens showing a live feed from the cameras that replace traditional wing mirrors.
The Audi e-tron is a fantastic car and it definitely deserves its place among the best electric cars on the market. Want to learn more? Simply take a look at our full review here. Alternatively, you can find the exact car that you see in these photos here.
