More than ever, Audi is known for cutting-edge technology, luxury, and performance with the new Audi EV line.
The German luxury automotive manufacturer has several new initiatives on the horizon that are sure to send shockwaves through the auto industry, starting with the new Audi EV line.
Audi currently has seven electric models as part of the 2022 electric lineup. They include the e-Tron Sportback, the e-Tron S, the Q5 TFSI e
The German automaker plans to increase that number substantially and the coming EVs with be the most comprehensive line yet.
Among other things, the new electric cars will have longer ranges on a single charge, quicker charging times, and even more technology.
Among the new cars: One that drives itself.
It comes with a number of sensors that make it safe for self-driving on highways and in the city. You can also connect the vehicle to the Internet to receive software updates and alerts.
The luxury automaker, which is now part of the Volkswagen group, said a few years ago that it will invest nearly $16 billion in electric mobility, autonomous driving, and various digital services.
“This planning round bears a clear signature: We are taking a very systematic approach to electric mobility and will be much more focused in the future. We are consistently prioritizing our resources for future-oriented products and services that are highly attractive and relevant to the market,” according to Bram Schot, temporary chairman of the Board of Management of Audi.
With new strict emissions regulations on the automobile industry, more brands are focusing on EVs.
The European Union has been the most aggressive with its regulations, ordering automakers to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a whopping 40 percent.
For 2023 alone, Audi says, there will be a number of new features available on the new Audi EV line – including an updated infotainment system, new safety features, and even a new Virtual Reality System.
And there’s good news for those who already own an Audi. The company says it even plans to release updates for its existing models that will improve performance and add a number of features.
And tomorrow is already here when it comes to the world of the new Audi EV line.
The 2022 e-tron SUV, for instance, is all-electric and represents the future of this Audi EV universe.
With its streamlined, modern-looking interior and top-notch performance and handling – as well as quick-charging ability – the Audi e-tron makes sense in today’s fast-changing world.
Electronic all-wheel drive is provided by two electric motors – one in the front and one in the rear of the car. Under normal driving circumstances, they churn out a combined 355 hp and 414 lb-feet of torque. Sport mode quickly unleashes 402 horsepower and 490 pound-feet.
The Audi e-tron has a driving range of 222 miles, according to the EPA, while the Sportback version provides 218 miles of driving range. The electric motor will take you from zero to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 125 mph.
The e-tron’s sophisticated interior includes plenty of cutting-edge technology, including a dashboard carrying multiple optional high-resolution screens with a Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster. You get to live out that futuristic fantasy in style without sacrificing comfort, performance, and utility. All starting at $65,900.
Features of the Audi e-tron:
- It’s everything you’d expect from an Audi – sophisticated design, comfort, and performance and it’s fully electric.
- Audi’s state-of-the-art technology reigns supreme inside the e-tron and includes a digital gauge display that is standard in all models as well as a large infotainment touchscreen.
- Every e-tron’s infotainment system includes dual touchscreens, with a 10.1-inch display on top and an 8.8-inch below.
- A variety of options within the various packages of the 2022 Audi e-tron® include massaging front seats as well as a head-up display. The base model includes an impressive 29 cubic feet behind the back row and 57 cubic feet with the seatbacks folded down.
- Some states still offer a $7,500 tax credit or other financial incentives on electric vehicles that can help lower the total ownership cost of the e-tron®.
For 2023, Audi will make some subtle changes to the e-tron as well as the e-tron Sportback trims.
A black headliner will be standard on base Sportback SUV models.
Opt for the Sportback Prestige trims and you get 22-inch five-spoke wheels, Audi’s Matrix-design headlights, and rear side airbags as standard.
Black Optic exterior package takes it up another notch on the e-tron S and e-tron Sportback S, which now have standard carbon square inlays and LED interior lighting. Prestige trim levels include Audi’s Matrix-design headlights for 2023.
