Audi e-tron ® Prototype Braking Test at Pikes Peak

e-tron ® – This electronic SUV impresses with efficiency: the innovative recuperation system charges the battery and specifically developed brakes ensure safety and performance – even under extreme conditions.

The e-tron ® is Audi’s first-ever purely electric vehicle — an SUV charged to go the distance.
Audi e-tron ® prototypes are undergoing testing in all conditions on four continents to prove they’re worthy of the rings.

The first purely electric vehicle from Audi will offer long-range capability, room for five people, and ample cargo space and towing capacity.

A large 95 kWh battery offers long distance trips on a single charge. The e-tron ® will be engineered for both AC and DC charging via the widespread SAE Combined Charging System (CCS), and can utilize 150 kW DC high-speed public charging stations that provide an approximate 80% charge in about 30 minutes. At home, a 9.6 kW AC charger (Level 2, 240-volt/40 amps) is designed to deliver a full charge overnight.

Quick acceleration provided by two electric motors creates nearly instantaneous torque — and an unparalleled driving experience. An electric motor is placed on each of the axles, distributing power more efficiently. The new electric quattro® all-wheel drive helps provide exceptional control and confidence in a variety of driving conditions.

Positioned low in the vehicle to enhance driving dynamics, the battery pack is designed to be compact and sleek.
