Handsome, Traditional with an Emission-Free Twist…The Audi e-tron

A dapper gentleman sits at the bar. He’s wearing a finely made suit, sipping expensive scotch and exudes confidence and sophistication. He’s not flashy and not terribly good-looking, but there’s something attractive about him that makes you want to get to know him. He’s the kind of fellow that doesn’t play games, cuts to the chase and is responsible, reliable and on top of everything; get this…he’s an environmentalist.

If the Audi e-tron were a man, this would be him. The name e-tron may sound futuristic, but the 2022 Audi e-tron looks and acts like a traditional mid-size luxury crossover. His sporty brother, the Audi e-tron Sportback, is built almost identically, commanding the same attention but with an apparent athletic build. Both of these EVs boast instant acceleration and fast charging times housed in smooth lines and attractive styling. I mean, are you not intrigued? We certainly are.

Power and Performance

Both Audi e-trons run on two electric motors, one on the front axle and one on the rear. Together they combine to give this all-wheel drive EV a maximum output of 402 horsepower and 490 lb of torque. The e-tron can reach 100 km from a standstill in as little as 5.7 seconds.

As you might expect, the e-tron rides luxuriously. Smooth, quiet and composed. Cruising is where this EV excels; cornering…meh. Conventionalists might enjoy the traditional brakes with the obligatory regenerative braking system, but for EV tech lovers, the regen braking is not aggressive enough to enable one-pedal driving.

Range, Battery and Charging

A 95 kWh battery powers the twin electric motors in the e-tron and the Sportback edition. This EV supports speedy 150 kW fast charging, which can replenish the battery to 80% in about 30 minutes.

Interior and Cargo Space

The inside of the 5-seater 2022 Audi e-tron is just as sophisticated as it is on the outside. Practical yet innovative, the interior of this EV is loaded with cutting-edge tech and heated leather seats that can be upgraded to massage.

The dashboard includes a digital gauge cluster and a” Virtual Cockpit” that runs through two touchscreens—a 10.1-inch display on top and an 8.8-inch one below. The upper screen gives access to features like…

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Premium Sound System (can be upgraded to Bang & Olufsen)

The bottom screen mainly controls climate and heated seat levels.

The spacious interior boasts 660 litres of cargo space, increasing to 1,726 litres with the rear seats folded down. If you have the Sportback trim, the cargo space slightly decreases dues to the sloped roof, but it only makes a difference of one less carry-on suitcase.

Safety and Driver Assistance

Keeping on the luxury theme, the Audi e-tron has almost everything you can think of to stay safe on the road and feel assisted when needed. Standard features include…

  • Back-up camera
  • 360 degrees camera
  • Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist
  • Forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Head-Up display (optional)
