The Audi e-tron is the first fully electrically powered series production model.
Its expressive sill area, the electric tailboard and the light grey Singleframe are indicators of the high-voltage technology.
It is powered by two powerful electric motors that are locally CO2-neutral and virtually silent.
A key factor for the sporty character and outstanding transverse dynamics is the low and central position at which the battery system is installed, giving the vehicle a range that is suitable for driving long distances.
During far more than 90 per cent of all decelerations, the Audi e-tron recovers energy solely via its electric motors. The electric SUV taps its maximum recuperation potential in combination with the integrated electrohydraulic brake control system. Audi is the world’s first carmaker to use such a system in an electrically powered series production vehicle.
The optional virtual exterior mirrors are a worldwide first in a series production model. They reduce aerodynamic drag, and also take digitalisation in the vehicle to a whole new level.
