• Every E-Tron Electric Car in Audi’s Lineup

Audi has been the front runner when it comes to transitioning to electric vehicles and there’s no stopping it

Audi is committed to transitioning into an all-electric brand by 2026, and seeing the onslaught on the EV market, we have no doubts it will be able to accomplish its mission. The company has tens of electric products in the pipeline, some of them being wild concepts like the electric Dakar Rally car, the AI:Trail Concept, and the Artemis Project. There are even some slightly realistic concepts like the Skysphere, Grandsphere, and the Urbansphere that will probably take shape at some point. While all these are future products, Audi has a full-fledged arsenal in the form of the E-Tron lineup that is currently catering to the customer’s EV needs. The company has many E-Tron models on sale and a few in the reckoning. Here’s everything you need to know about Audi’s E-Tron lineup:

Audi E-Tron and E-Tron Sportback

The E-Tron will go down in history books as the first Audi electric car. Revealed in 2015 as a concept, Audi launched the production version of the EV in 2018 to take on the likes of the Tesla Model X. In terms of size, it falls somewhere between the Q5 and the Q7; but, thanks to the lack of transmission tunnel and an engine, it feels nearly as spacious as the latter. In terms of creature comforts, is it fairly well-loaded. Just like many other models in the brand’s entire lineup, the E-Tron also receives a twin with a slant head called the E-Tron Sportback that was added in 2020. Apart from the exterior shape, there is no difference between these models. A facelift for the E-Tron Sportback is on the cards, and this might be the last update as Audi plans to kill it in favor of the Q8 E-Tron in 2026.

The E-Tron and the E-Tron Sportback feature a dual-motor setup that produces up to 402 horses and 490 pound-feet of torque with boost engaged. It is strong on the performance side, too, taking 5.5 seconds to 60 mph and going all the way up to 124 mph. It comes with a 95 kWh battery pack that’s good for 222 miles of EPA-estimated range. That’s 2.33 miles per kWh, which is definitely on the lower side when cars like the Lucid Air offer almost double of that. It has a towing capacity of up to 4,000 pounds. Account for that as well and you’ll end up traveling barely 100 miles on a full charge when towing full capacity. This is one aspect of that E Tron that is quite unimpressive. As for the price, the 2022 E-Tron starts at $65,900 and goes all the way up to $83,400 for a special ‘Chronos Edition’, whereas the E-Tron Sportback ranges from $69,100 to $82,300.

Audi E-Tron S and E-Tron S Sportback

The E-Tron S and the E-Tron S Sportback are the powerful versions of their standard counterparts. The only difference between the two, just like all the other twins, is the exterior shape. The highlight of these high-performance models is obviously the powertrain. Audi has added one more motor to the mix, thus making it a tri-motor setup. There’s one powerful e-motor on the front axle and two slightly less powerful ones on each of the rear wheels. Thanks to this, the combined power output increases to 496 horses (with boost engaged) and 717 pound-feet of torque. This allows the EV to sprint to 60 mph from rest in 4.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 130 mph.

This Audi EV comes with a 95 kWh battery pack that’s good for only 208 miles! Drive the E-Tron S and the E-Tron S Sportback how they are supposed to be and the range will fall down well under 200 miles. Both the models will be offered in Premium Plus and Prestige trims. The 2022 E-Tron S Premium Plus is priced at $84,800 and the Prestige at $89,800, whereas the E-Tron S Sportback Premium Plus is priced at $87,400 and the Prestige trim at $92,400.

Audi E-Tron GT

Post the launch of the E-Tron, the company decided to inject some much-needed drama into the E-Tron lineup, and the result of this was the E-Tron GT. The four-door coupe hit the market in 2020 and ascended to supremacy right away. This isn’t the company’s first gig with four-door performance coupes; Audi has the A7 and the A5 Sportback that fill the same shoes in the gas-powered vehicle portfolio. In my personal opinion, this is the sexiest looking E-Tron model. Audi offers it in two trims – Premium Plus and Prestige.

Powered by two electric motors – one on each axle – the E-Tron GT puts out 469 ponies and 464 pound-feet of oomph, combined. There is a boost mode that gives you some extra power to play with for a few seconds – 522 horses and 472 pound-feet of torque. With these powerful specs backing it, the E-Tron GT can gallop to 60 mph quietly in 3.9 seconds and onto a top speed of 152 mph. Audi has plonked in a 93 kWh battery pack here that enables the coupe to travel 238 miles before shutting down. The 2022 E-Tron GT is priced at $102,400 for the Premium Plus trim and $109,600 for the Prestige.

Audi RS E-Tron GT

Audi thought the E-Tron GT isn’t powerful enough for the enthusiasts and decided to infuse the RS DNA into it. As expected, it receives impressive power bumps that makes this pretty heavy on performance. The RS E-Tron GT’s dual-motor setup churns out 590 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. With the boost mode engaged, it can make up to 637 ponies. It even features a front single-speed and rear two-speed automatic gearbox. Courtesy of all this, the Audi RS E-Tron GT propels to 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.1 seconds. The top speed is rated at 155 mph.

Stuff like Quattro all-wheel-drive system and e-vectoring plus are also offered. If you need to improve the stopping prowess, you can opt for the carbon-ceramic brakes for extra moolah. As for the battery and range, this electric Audi features a 93 kWh battery pack that offers a range of 232 miles on a full charge. Just like most of the E-Tron models, this isn’t too impressive either. The 2022 RS E-Tron GT starts at $142,400, making it the most expensive E-Tron currently.

Audi Q4 E-Tron

Audi entered this mighty popular segment in 2021 with the Q4 E-Tron. Although looks are subjective, the Q4 E Tron has a fairly neutral design that won’t offend anyone and make them throw their beer at it. It is offered in eight exterior shades and three wheel designs. On the inside, it features a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch touchscreen on the center console.

Audi offers it in three trims – Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. You get a dual-motor setup and a power output of 295 horses. The range is rated at 241 miles. All models come with the ’50’ powertrain, which means they have the same powertrain, output, and range. As for the prices, the 2022 Q4 E-Tron starts at $49,900 and tops out at $57,500 before options, making it the cheapest Audi E-Tron model on sale currently.

Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron

The Q4 Sportback E-Tron, as the name suggests, is the coupe/Sportback version of the Q4 E-Tron. This niche has become quite popular in recent times and a lot of automakers offer models in both these body forms. Essentially, it’s just the sloping roofline at the rear that differentiates the two. While the Q4 E-Tron and the Q4 Sportback E-Tron offer the same specs and features, the major difference between the two, courtesy of the sloping roofline, is the coefficient of drag. The Q4 Sportback E-Tron has a rating of 0.26 as opposed to the Q4 E-Tron’s 0.28.

Just like the standard Q4 E-Tron, the Sportback also comes in the ‘50’ configuration, which means it has the same numbers as its twin. The Euro-spec Q4 E-Tron and Q4 Sportback E-Tron, however, come in three configurations - 35, 40, and 50. The 35 and 40 feature a single-motor setup, whereas the 50 comes with two electric motors. The power output ranges from 168- to 295 horses. They come with different battery packs, too, with a range of 217-, 323- and 309 miles on the 35, 40, and 50 models, respectively. In the U.S., the 2022 Q4 Sportback E-Tron is priced at $52,700 and $60,300 for the top trim.

Audi A6 Avant E-Tron Concept

Audi’s E-Tron marathon continues with the A6 Avant. The automaker revealed the A6 Avant E-Tron Concept in the near-production form in March 2022. It is based on the same PPE platform that will also underpin many future Audi and Porsche models. It comes with specs and features like 22-inch wheels, drag coefficient rating 0.24, and LED headlights that double up as a projector that you can point at a wall and use to play video games from the cabin.

The A6 Avant E-Tron Concept features a dual-motor setup that puts out 469 horses and 590 pound-feet of torque, combined. Courtesy of a 100 kWh battery, the electric wagon will be able to last for 435 miles before needing to be plugged in. It supports DC fast-charging up to 270 kW that allows it to recharge from five- to 80-percent in less than 25 minutes. As for the performance specs, the top-spec models will be able to sprint to 62 mph from rest in under four seconds, and the lower models in under seven seconds.

The production-spec Audi A6 E-Tron Avant is expected to come out sometime in 2024. If you’re not warmed up to the idea of the A6 E-Tron Avant and need something more powerful, well, you’re in luck. Audi is planning to build the RS E-Tron version of the wagon as well, but don’t expect it to come out in the next three years at least.

Audi A6 E-Tron Concept

Audi, just like Mercedes, will be electrifying pretty much its entire existing portfolio. While the former makes use of the EQ-moniker, the Lord of four rings has stuck to the E-Tron suffix. The first E-Tron production model came out in 2018, and within four years, the automaker has managed to make a good crowd of electric models in its lineup. One of the most important sedans in Audi’s arsenal, the A6, is also on the verge of getting electrified; or should I say… E-Tron-ified! (Nope, it doesn’t have a nice ring to it)

The A6 E-Tron is a lot more aggressive, looks bolder and sharper, and will be sportier even in the standard form when compared to the fuel-powered A6. The company noted that the concept is 95-percent of what the real deal will look like. This new Audi electric car will be based on the PPE platform and will feature a dual-motor setup that is capable of churning out 469 ponies and 590 pound-feet of torque. It will be mighty fast, taking under four seconds to sprint to 60 mph from rest. The WLTP-estimated range is 435 miles. A single-motor cheaper trim will also be offered somewhere down the line.

Audi revealed the concept version of the A6 E-Tron in 2021, but it was first spotted out in the wild in March 2022. In April 2022, the automaker took it to the Green Hell to run a few hot laps. The production of the 2023 A6 E-Tron is expected to begin in late 2022.

Audi Q6 E-Tron

Audi’s got no chill whatsoever. It is refusing the take its foot off the gas pedal (or is it electric pedal?!?!) and is baking new products like it is bread. The other E-Tron product due for a launch is the Q6 E-Tron. We spied it in October 2021 for the first time and it has been spotted out in the open many times since then. The crossover features a huge singleframe grille and split headlights, something we got to know because of the folks testing it in Scandinavia.

It will be built on VW Group’s PPE architecture that will be shared by Audi, Porsche, and even Bentley. There aren’t a whole lot of details available yet, but we expect it to offer Q7 levels of space in Q5’s footprint. If you take the A6 E-Tron’s powertrain as the benchmark, then the Q6 E-Tron will also feature a 469-horsepower dual-motor setup that offers up to 435 miles of range. It is expected to be revealed later this year and will be built at Audi’s Ingolstadt plant.

For what it’s worth, the Q6 E-Tron will also come with an RS version sometime in the future. It’s not a myth because we’ve spotted it testing on the roads and it had quite a few different elements when compared to the standard Q6 E-Tron. This included bigger brakes, red calipers, and the typical RS details. We’d be lucky if Audi launches the RS version also alongside the Q6 E-Tron, but the chances of that are as low as Audi making a high-range EV in the near future.
