All-new for 2019, the e-tron is Audi’s first-ever battery electric vehicle. The all-wheel drive e-tron has a 204 mile driving range in a five passenger, luxury midsize SUV. Audi claims the e-tron charges at a class-leading 150 kW at public chargers, making it the fastest charging sped of any electric SUV. So while the range is a bit less than other battery electrics, Audi says it made a choice not to maximize range, saying the e-tron maintains a 12-percent battery reserve that’s meant to prolong battery life.
2019 e-tron original owners receive a Level 2 home-charging system that can be kept in the vehicle as a portable charging solution, or mounted to the wall of your garage. Audi also has partnered with Electrify America where e-tron owners receive 1,000 kWh of charging (approximately 2,000 miles of driving) at one of Electrify America’s 2,000 DC fast charger sites.
