Audi E-Tron Electric SUV Driven; Should You Cancel That Model X Or I-Pace?



The Audi E-Tron is the first generation battery-powered SUV from Ingolstadt.

It has nothing in common with other E-Tron-branded vehicles, except for the title, and it’s a fresh entrance to this particular niche.

Powering it are two electric motors, one on every axle, which make their juice by a 95 kWh battery. In Sport mode, 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint takes 5.7 seconds, that is very respectable for a vehicle that weighs 2.5 tons (5,512 lbs).

Keep the ideal pedal down, and it’ll eventually top out in 200 km/h (124 mph). And it will all of this with a range of over 400 kilometers (249 miles) from the WLTP riding cycle.
