The drivetrain consists of two electric motors, one putting out 170hp and 247Nm at the front and a second one of 190hp and 314Nm on the rear axle, which together provide a combined power of 360hp and 561Nm. In S mode, these values can be boosted to 408hp and 664Nm for a short time, giving the Audi very fast performance, sprinting to 100km/h in 5.7 seconds and allowing it to pick up speed very fast. If asked, the e-tron will reach 200km/h.
With its 95-kWh battery, Audi announces a range of “more than 400km” (WLTP), but that is clearly too optimistic. We achieved about 300km. The three standard charging cables for the home, wallbox (11 or 22kW) or fast charger (150kW) are kept in a special storage compartment at the front under the bonnet so they do not take up any luggage space and are always easily accessible.
With an average test consumption of about 30kWh/100km, it is not exactly economical as an electric car. Its heavy weight clearly puts it at a disadvantage.
