The luxury car manufacturers have kick-started the gradual transition towards electric mobility and in recent months, we have seen the arrival of a host of zero-emission models and the Audi e-tron is another highlight. It derives power from a 95 kWh battery pack and it feeds power to a twin electric motor system, capable of generating a combined maximum power output of 408 bhp.
The peak torque stands at 664 Nm and the e-tron claimed to have a driving range of 400 km on a single charge. All customers buying the electric SUV this year will get two chargers: one is a portable 11 kW compact charger and the other is a wall box AC charger, which will be installed at the buyer’s preferred space without having to bear the additional installation cost.
