2021 Audi E-Tron 55 Appearance and Style
The E-Tron 55 looks almost like Audi SUV. The brighter shades add more poise to its shape. The differences are in rear-end style of Q8, developed from the flattish rear of Q7. The Audi E-Tron is an evolution of the Q5. The Audi E-Tron features are 4,901mm length, 1,935mm width, 1,629mm tall, with a 2,928mm wheelbase, which is a sTrong aspect for this new EV. The Audi E-Tron sits on 255/50 section 20-inches, almost like Audi Q8’s wheels and tyres. The large sidewall is a plus point to this vehicle. On brighter colour vehicles, the gloss black trim seems to give an elegant look. It is also present in the sheet metals, especially in the lower rear doors with aero elements just before the rear wheel. With these features, the Audi E-Tron becomes an impressive 0.27Cd.
The charge ports are behind the fold-out door which hold the E-Tron’s badging. The outer rear view cameras are not suitable for India. The brisky headlights and Digital Matrix LEDs are the best features.
Audi E-Tron Interiors And Features
The Audi E-Tron has been styled similar to Q8 and facelift versions of Q7 and Q5. The dashboard is a high-tech designed structure with two digital panels for beneficial features like infotainment and climate controls. The virtual cockpit instrumentation is available. You can lower your seats to lower levels according to your preference. There is no problem with visibility from any angle when you sit in the cabin.
A head-up display, smart phone integration, wireless charging, four-zone climate control, Bang Olufsen 16-speaker, 705W audio system and air quality package are the important other features.
A large space is available as in Audi Q8, with a near-flat floor. The battery pack is accommodated below the floor along with the adapted ICE-platform. Rear seat comfort can be described as equivalent to Q8 with comfortable reclining angle, under thigh support and space with low window line. Boot space is 660-litres, expandable to 1,725-litres if the second row is flipped down.
2021 Audi E-Tron Performance And Charging
The top range Audi E-Tron 55 has a 95kWh battery pack with 359-484km WLTP range. The torque is 408PS and 664Nm which is very safe even when you are a bit sporty.
The Audi E-Tron facilitates immediate acceleration, without any kick down, labour or noise. You can just overtake with no effort. No road noise is felt. About 400km of driving range can been attained in the city, concluding that maybe 380-420km is possible for most people. The E-Tron has the fastest onboard charger at 11kW, which takes 11 hours for a 0-80% top-up. The wallbox charger installed for customers by Audi, at 22kW, needs just 4.5 hours for a same charge. With a 50kW public DC charger, about 0-80% top up within two hours, E-Tron’s max of 150kW charging would take a mere 30 minutes or less.
Audi E-Tron Riding And Handling
The Audi E-Tron surprises you with its extraordinary body control. That is due to the weight being carried low down in the chassis which immensely minimises body roll and lean. The air suspension is standard and sharper joints or edges of potholes give the feel of a dull thud. The steering is just like the Audi, easily accessible but not so exciting or enthusiastic. But for people who like a comfortable travelling experience, the large E-Tron drives with great ease like Q5.
