What is Audi e-tron?

Audi e-tron is a range of electric vehicles with the precision and luxury that is expected of every Audi vehicle. Currently, there are two models in the e-tron range available for purchase: e-tron and e-tron Sportback. The e-tron is a vehicle with practicality and shape comparable to a more conventional mid-sized crossover, while the e-tron Sportback is the more athletic brother. The sweptback lower roofline gives the e-tron Sportback a more aggressive and sporty feeling while sacrificing very little in terms of headroom and cargo space.

Audi has also recently debuted the Q4 e-tron concept. Although it is currently just a concept vehicle that is not on sale yet, it does preview a smaller range of vehicles coming soon to the e-tron family. Not only does this concept show a sneak-peek of what is coming next to the consumer, but it also shows Audi’s commitment to an emissions-free electric future.

Which e-tron is right for me?

Before outlining the differences between the two in the e-tron model range, it is important to point out the similarities and how e-tron ownership can fit into your lifestyle.

Purchasing either model in the range will automatically enter you into Audi’s energy program. The benefits of being entered into the program include a level 2 home charger kit, a carbon offset program, and solar panel installation. The charger can have the battery ready to go in just over two hours, and the solar panels allow the driver to power his or her entire home with renewable energy.

Both models are also powered by two asynchronous electric motors, with one driving each axle. This creates a combined 355 horsepower and 414 lb-ft of torque driving all four wheels. There is also a sport mode that turns up the power to 402 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque. The battery packs are also identical, being made with lithium-ion and rated at 95 kWh. With a maximum range of 350 km and the ability to charge at home or at one of Canada’s many public charging stations, range anxiety has all but been eliminated.

The Audi e-tron is for the people that want to switch to a more environmentally-conscious solution to their transportation needs, without having to give up the practicality and versatility of a conventional gasoline-powered crossover. With an impressive 807 litres of trunk space with the rear seats up and 1600 litres with the rear seats down, the e-tron rivals any midsize crossover’s cargo space. Coupled with the luxury and technology expected from Audi, and you have the perfect electric vehicle that is practical and emissions-free.

The Audi e-tron Sportback is a more chiseled and athletic vehicle, embodying the dynamic spirit of the Audi brand. The lowered roofline gives the e-tron Sportback a sleeker profile and is the for a person without the need for as much practicality as the e-tron, yet wants to be environmentally-conscious as well.
