Audi's first electric vehicle had to be distinctive among the expanding number of all-electric sport utility vehicles.
With its advanced features and amenities, this vehicle lives up to its reputation as a technological frontrunner.
Our team has compiled a list of the top five most cool features on the Audi E-Tron.
‘Virtual’ Door Mirrors
Normal wing mirrors seem antiquated now that some manufacturers are replacing them with digitalized mirrors. The Audi e-Tron is one of the vehicles experimenting with new kinds of door mirrors; the Audi e-Tron SUV may be equipped with "virtual" door mirrors. It primarily consists of a series of tiny cameras fastened to the car's body, all of which transmit their photos to monitors inside. The concept may sound gimmicky on paper, but it performs admirably in everyday driving situations.
Dual-Screen Digital Display
Beginning with the A8 and Q8, Audi was one of the first automakers to include a dual-screen configuration in their vehicles. This technology is available in the e-Tron as well, and it essentially consists of two screens—one on top that handles the more conventional aspects of the car's entertainment system and one on the bottom that handles the car's temperature and ventilation.
Incredibly Fast Charging Times
Audi provides the E-Tron with quick charging capacity, allowing the vehicle to receive a charge at a rate of up to 150kW, making it ready for the future. The e-huge Tron's 95kWh battery pack can be charged in only 30 minutes using ultra-rapid 150kW chargers, which is especially handy on a model with one of the biggest batteries of any EV.
Online or "over-the-air" updates
Audi is entering this market with models like the e-tron, following in the footsteps of electric vehicle pioneer Tesla by offering 'over-the-air' updates to its vehicles. This effectively implies that car owners have the option to modify their vehicles at any point throughout their ownership. For instance, the car's standard LED headlights may be upgraded to more modern Matrox LED units with the push of a button.
Innovative Battery-Powered Journey Planner
Fear of depleting the battery is still a major deterrent to the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, despite the fact that any EV owner would assure you that such fears are unfounded. If this is still a concern, the e-tron is equipped with a helpful e-route planner that shows the location of public charging stations along the route. It also has a planning function that shows you the most efficient routes and where to plug in to get the most out of your battery life.
