First Drive: 2019 Audi E-Tron



GO BUY A SHIRT OR STICKERS! –

Audi has entered the electric vehicle fray. Say hello to the 2019 Audi E-tron. This is the German automaker’s first fully electric machine and it’s a surprisingly good starting point for four-ringed electrification. It does make you ask a question though; do you prefer maximum range or fast charging speeds?

    Be aware that the EPA rating for Audi e-tron quattro is very conservative, compared to other EV’s. The consumption number in the car is also very honest and the Guess’o Meter is rather pessimistic. In real life, and head to head tests with the I-pace or model X, it has almost exactly the same consumption on long trips. Maybe 7-8% higher, but you’ll be able to pull a few kWh extra from the battery of the e-tron compared with the I-Pace and X90D with similar net capacity, placing the e-tron between the Model X Standard Range and Long Range. (The first has WLTP rating of 233 miles while the e-tron has a rating of 258 miles. The EPA rated them 250 miles and 204, accordingly.. go figure!) I’ve driven the Audi e-tron quattro 270 miles on 20-inch wheels. Yes, 204 miles is what you are likely to get if you drive hard- or on motorway only, doing 80 mph, or in harsh winter. But that also true for the competitors.
