Audi's answer to Tesla is finally here! The new E Tron has launched and is winning fantastic reviews, in part because if its sheer normalcy, this is an electric car that's simply a good car, and recognisably looks, feels and drives no differently to any other Audi. The E Tron starts with just the one initial power plant choice - the 55 model which has the equivalent of 355 bhp, (though they can be boosted to 403bhp for a short period) which is enough for a 0-60 time of just over 5 seconds, and a 95kWh battery which gives an official range of 243 miles, not bad for a car that weighs in at around 2.5 tonnes, and most road tests seem to agree it has just over 200 miles of real world driving range, depending on conditions like temperature (very cold days will see this reduce). Charging times are something like 14 hours from a typical 7kW home charger, but can charge up to 150kW meaning it can take full advantage of the network of public fast charging stations springing up all over the UK.
Size wise the Audi E Tron sits between the Q5 and Q7 4x4 SUV models, and has an interior you would recognise for cars like the A6 and Q8 with it's split dual touchscreens in the central display, with the top one being 10.1" for navigation and infotainment and the bottom 8.6" for features like the heated seats & air conditioning. Interior spec is very good with excellent leg and headroom and boot space is 660 litres, and the cabin is well isolated to almost Rolls Royce levels, and certainly a lot quieter than something like a Tesla model X, with notable premium rivals being the Jaguar I Pace and the Mercedes EQC.
