First Impression: Audi e-tron

Post by Rob » Thu Aug 23, 2018 3:38 pm

GT Spirit were invited to Colorado to experience the full-electric new e-tron for the first time. Audi is particular keen to show off the braking and energy recuperation system that it developed for the new e-tron.

Overall the Audi e-tron is a very welcome addition to the market of electric cars. A cool but not overly expressive exterior is combined with a cutting edge and luxurious interior. Whereas Teslas feel under-engineered the e-tron is the exact opposite and my first impression is that it makes for an excellent daily driver and travel companion. It remains to be seen though what kind of range we can expect with a regular driving style.

Fully agree -and initial impressions are this is the EV to beat after Mercedes under-whelming entry last week, and Jaguar's less than auspicious debut. The range of this audi will be the point of interest. Most expect 3 m/Kwh in real time, so it should be good for 265 miles at least (given the loss from heat etc). That's the sweet point for my needs - one charge on a 500 mile journey with margin for safety, queues etc. Tesla driver's expectations seem optimistic, judging by forum postings - seems the cold, and acceleration take its toll more than thought. The Mercedes EQC said 200 miles in their blurb, later corrected to 280 miles.
