Introduced for the first time in 2018, the Audi e-tron is the first fully electric car from the four-ring brand. The Audi e-tron is built using the MLB evo platform which is still a brother to the Audi combustion engine car platform.
This electric car comes in two body types, e-tron and e-tron Sportback, and comes in two power variants, namely 50 quattro and 55 quattro.
The Audi e-tron is equipped with two electric motors, each of which drives the front and rear wheels through a single-speed transmission.
On the e-tron 50 quattro, the two electric motors produce a claimed combined power of 230 kW or the equivalent of 312 hp and 540 Nm of torque.
The power is channeled from a Lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 71.2 kWh. While on the e-tron 55 quattro, the combined power of the electric motor claims is greater to 265 kW or the equivalent of 360 hp and 561 Nm of torque.
Especially in the e-tron 55 quattro, there is a boost feature that boosts power and torque to 300 kW or 407 hp and 664 Nm for a moment.
The battery installed on the Audi e-tron 55 quattro is also larger in capacity, namely 95 kWh. The Audi e-tron 50 quattro is claimed to be able to cover an estimated distance of about 282 to 341 kilometers on the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) standard.
While the Audi e-tron 55 quattro has an estimated WLTP range of around 369 to 441 kilometers depending on options.
The Audi e-tron supports fast charging of 150 kW, in 10 minutes this car is claimed to be able to cover a distance of 100 km.
On paper, the Audi e-tron should be able to keep up with the BMW iX xDrive40, Tesla Model X, and Jaguar i-Pace.
