Audi officially introduced the e-tron model, which is the first fully electric serial model of this manufacturer. This electric SUV had its world premiere in San Francisco.
In idle or on the move, Audi e-tron is electrified. His expressive surfaces and light Single frame grille are indicators of high-technology that allows special driving experience. The electric SUV is powered by two powerful electric motors and are virtually silent. The new generation of quattro drive, electric all-wheel drive ensures outstanding traction and dynamics. Continuous and variable regulation of the ideal distribution of operating moments between two axles – in a fraction of a second. The key factors for sporting character and remarkable transverse dynamics are the low and central position in which the battery system is installed. Car batteries provide a great range to drive with this car for a long distance. During more than 90% of all decelerations, Audi e-tron recovers its energy exclusively through its electro motors. The electric SUV develops its maximum recuperative potential in combination with the integrated hydraulic brake control system. Audi is the first carmaker in the world to use such a system in the electric drive series vehicle.
Intelligently designed aerodynamics also significantly contributes to its efficiency. The culmination of this concept is optional virtual external rearview mirrors – the first time in the serial production model. Not only do they reduce air resistance but also raise the digitization of the vehicle to a new level. The Audi e-tron offers the spaciousness and comfort of a full size model. Coupled with high quality materials and top-of-the-line design, makes electrical mobility a top-notch experience. This is also ensured by an extensive and reliable range of charging with intelligent home and on-road solutions.
Navigation with the route planner shows a convenient route with the necessary charging points, automated billing at the gas station and remote control via smartphone – Audi e-tron is particularly well-networked. Equipped with the ultimate multimedia center MMI navigation plus, including LTE Advanced and Wi-Fi hotspot as standard. Numerous auxiliary systems further release the driver. For example, standard efficiency assistance promotes the economic driving style by displaying predictive information and automatic recuperation. If a customer chooses customizable cruise assistance, the system can also anticipate and accelerate an electric SUV.
