Audi Australia is entering the electric vehicle segment with what they call e-tron vehicles. David Brown reports that it is not just the power plant that they are pushing.
Audi’s first-ever all-electric vehicles, the e-tron and e-tron Sportback, are SUV vehicles with a focus on style rather than being just big and lumbering.
They emphasise sophisticated technology giving a range of 300km for the smaller battery pack and 400km for the larger one. Servicing and roadside assistance is provided for the first 6 years.
A few distinguishing features are that every e-tron variant can tow up to 1.8 tonnes
All vehicles have all-wheel drive and inside a huge 10.1-inch screen for infotainment and 8.6-inch for vehicle functions.
There’s even an option for virtual exterior mirrors.
The vehicle will be available from September from about $138,000 to $170,000 plus on roads.
