Summary

The Audi e-tron is Audi's very first all-electric production car. It beats its rival in almost every way; comfort, refinement, and build quality are all fantastic. With a claimed 249-mile maximum range and quick charge options, it could well be a genuine contender for even the biggest EV sceptics.

The Audi e-tron is Audi's very first all-electric production car. It follows a whole two years after the first Tesla Model X arrived in the UK. Five trim levels are available for the SUV: Technik, Sport, S line, Black Edition and Vorsprung. A new Sportback model (coupe-style SUV) has also been added to the range.

The Audi e-tron is the first car in the brand's electric offensive. Built on a modified version of the MLB platform found under a range of other Audi SUVs.

It's able to accept 150kW DC fast charging through its CCS connector.

Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Audi e-tron has been on sale for a little more than a year. It's time to welcome the coupé-inspired e- tron Sportback to the UK. You will need to step up to the more expensive specs, but like-for-like, the premium this car commands isn't as sizeable as you might imagine. The Jaguar I-Pace is a superior all-rounder, with sharper handling and a better real-world range.

  • Sleek styling

  • Comfortable to drive

Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Audi e-tron S Sportback is a high-performance version of Audi's Tesla Model X rival. It's the first mass-produced EV to make use of a triple-electric-motor set-up. One motor drives the front axle, while the two remaining motors power each rear wheel individually. The end result is a total output of 496bhp and a staggering 973Nm of torque. Audi says 0-62mph takes 4.5 seconds, with top speed limited to 130mph.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful triple-motor set-up
  • Impressive range
Cons[**]
  • Only 226 miles on a single charge

Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Audi e-tron S is a big, all-electric SUV that delivers a colossal 496bhp and 973Nm of torque from its 95kWh battery and three-motor set-up. It will leave sports cars in its wake, because the instant twist from the electric motors propels this superbly refined and smooth SUV forward at a simply incredible rate. But the Audi isn't a one-trick pony, because despite its 21-inch alloy wheels, and carrying a whopping 700kg battery, the ride is surprisingly good on air suspension. It's executed with the usual understated level of panache Audi is known for.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful all-wheel-drive system
  • Impressive acceleration
  • Comfortable ride
Cons[**]
  • Limited range

Sentiment Score[*] 66%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The electric Audi provided a perfect way to commute in London. It's at its best in heavy traffic, where the refinement, efficiency and ride comfort all shine through. At 200-odd miles, we have to admit the Audi isn't stellar on that front. But once you get past any concerns about charging or range, you end up with one of the company's more convincing offerings.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent battery life
  • Excellent range
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 69%
Reviewers from Carmagazine have found the following[***]:
All-electric SUV given coupe roofline and sportier drive rivals Jaguar i-Pace. Entry spec is S Line, with lots of kit German premium manufacturers like nothing better than making things into coupes. It's a more dynamically-roofed-and-suspended electric off-road-alike.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful enough to drive quickly
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lots of practicality
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Carmagazine have found the following[***]:
The e-Tron is Audi's first fully electric car production car. It has a certified 249-mile range of guilt-free motoring and promises trademark Audi performance, four-wheel drive, the usual quality interior – and now cleaner guts too. The cruise control switches are lifted straight from the Audi parts bin, and there are paddles behind the wheel, too.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive electric powertrain
  • Impressive range of electric vehicles
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
Reviewers from Carwow have found the following[***]:
The Audi e-tron is an electric car for those who want to keep their EV preference under the radar. So it's an alternative to the Mercedes EQC and Jaguar I-Pace. At a glance, it appears like a petrol- or diesel-powered Audi SUV, but like every cake shop in the world, it gets much more interesting once you step inside.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable and comfortable to drive
  • Fantastic infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 68%
Reviewers from Carwow have found the following[***]:
The e-tron Sportback takes all that's good about Audi big SUV EV and puts it into a slightly sleeker package. There's plenty of space for five adults, and the more sloping rear tailgate hasn't had too much of an adverse effect on luggage capacity. Up front, the large front seats can make even the most sizeable of frames comfortable, and there's a vast range of adjustment for the seats and the steering wheel.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Lots of space for passengers and cargo
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Lack of rear-seat cupholders

Sentiment Score[*] 50%
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The Audi E-Tron's 204-mile EPA rating just barely crosses the threshold where most drivers won't have to worry about range anxiety. The massaging seats, while not as comprehensive as those on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, are very appreciated. The 705-watt, 16-speaker B&O sound system handles everything from Bach to The Beatles.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, comfortable interior
  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

cnet[12]

Sentiment Score[*] 42%
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The E-Tron Sportback has undergone the now industry-standard four-door-coupification process. Audi upped the available battery capacity slightly, increasing the customer-accessible portion of this 95.3-kilowatt-hour pack to 86.5 kWh. Even with frameless windows, the Sportback is one of the quietest vehicles I have ever driven.

Pros[**]
  • Elegant interior design
  • Comfortable ride and handling
  • Efficient regenerative braking with traditional friction binders
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
