Audi e-tron

Audi e-tron

REVIEW

2018 will be seen as The Year of the EV SUV, so far we’ve had the Jaguar i-Pace, Mercedes EQC and now we have this latest entrant into the race – the Audi e-tron. Audi has done down a rather interesting route with the e-tron though, as most companies are styling their EVs to look futuristic and a little bit ‘out there’. Audi has instead decided to make the e-tron look just like a normal SUV that just so happens to have an EV drivetrain, so from a distance you could think it was a new Q5 or Q8. Only when you get closer do you start to notice the more funky EV details like the orange brake calipers and its genuinely unique feature – cameras instead of door mirrors! That’s right, the future is finally here and the e-tron is the first production car to have (optional) virtual door mirrors where on the end of a stalk there’s a bullet shaped camera feeding images back to the little screens near the interior A-pillar. Why? As well as looking cool, they reduce drag massively, adding a fair few miles to the range at motorway speeds. Speaking of range, the 95kWh battery allows a real-world range of around 280 miles on the WLTP test cycle. Add in that it will be able to use the new 150kW fast chargers where you can add 80% charge in 20 mins and range anxiety is a thing of the past.
