4,000 lbs towing capacity (1,814 kg)

Total motor ability output is 300 kW or 400 horsies

Audi has non announced official EPA arrive at but European WLPT arrive at is said to last N of 249 miles (400 km). When Jaguar quoted their WLPT arrive at at 292 miles (470 km), EPA arrive at ended upward existence 20% less. Using that same estimate, the e-tron would milkshake out to N of 200 miles (322 km) but probable non every bit high every bit 250 miles (402 km).

Curb weight is close 5,600 lbs (2,540 kg), which agency the gross vehicle weight should last higher upward 6,000 lbs in addition to unlock the $25,000 trouble organization ‘Hummer Tax Credit’ inward the US.


First impressions:

It’s a actually fantabulous motorcar when factoring inward the total offering.

Range in addition to efficiency is non every bit neat at Tesla’s Model X but it far exceeds Tesla inward fit, finish, in addition to beast comforts.

I’m non terribly crazy close the dual concealment arrangement every bit it seems at that topographic point is about redundancy. That existence said, I empathize Audi has to remember close streamlining manufacturing across their entire vehicle describe upward in addition to attracting their electrical flow client base of operations amongst something they are familiar with.

Charging infrastructure in addition to network from the infotainment was either buried inward the bill of fare or non-existent. This, however, is a uncomplicated software update on Audi’s end. Most people’s charging needs inward the e-tron volition last met amongst habitation charging in addition to the current, in addition to speedily growing, CCS charging network across the US.
