The highly-anticipated Audi E-Tron has finally been unveiled on Monday, with reservations started on the same day. Audi’s first all-electric car will start to be delivered in the US in the second quarter of next year.
The SUV can accommodate five, packs a couple of electric motors, and has an all-wheel-drive setup as standard. Audi also said the E-Tron is capable of going around 248 miles, as tested on the New European Driving Cycle. However, it hasn’t been tested by the US Environment Protection Agency.
The official performance figures are 5.5 seconds for a 0-60 mph run and 124 mph for the maximum speed. The E-Tron’s electric motors take their power from a 95 kWh battery that can regain 80% of its energy after being recharged for 30 minutes with certain DC quick-chargers.
Many interior settings are under control with a pair of touchscreen displays, Amazon’s Alexa will also be fully integrated into the car – which is the first time for an Audi vehicle. With the Amazon’s digital brain, customers can get the news, buy foodstuff, stream audiobooks, and voice control some smart home devices.
A heads-up display can also be found inside the car, projecting some information onto the windshield. Driver assistance system will be an optional offer. It functions as the E-Tron’s speed and safe-distance regulator in dense traffic or when driving on the highway.
The Audi E-Tron all-electric SUV along with its cool features are asking you from $75,795 ($995 destination fee included) if you want to get one. At first, a refundable $1,000 is required for you to get on the waiting list until the deliveries take place in 2019.
