2020 Audi E-Tron Quattro – All About Luxury Electric SUV
There are two without three, with 2020 Audi e-Tron Quattro the offer of electric SUV can be said to be complete. A few days after Mercedes EQC, the day after tomorrow by BMW Vision iNext (but still at the concept stage), here is the Audi weapon to fight in the segment of the future. Previewed in San Francisco (lagging behind the original plans, due to some small hitch ), finally, the e-Tron Quattro (on sale from the end of 2018, The Price starting from 79,900 euros ) has no more secrets. Let’s do it the third degree.
2020 Audi e-Tron Quattro Performance & Range
The first zero-emission series model of the Quattro Anelli uses two electric motors, one for each of the two axles, so as to reproduce a four-wheel drive pattern. The combined power amounts to 407 hp, the driving torque to 664 Nm, available (perdindirindina) in 250 thousandths of a second. From 0 to 100% torque in a quarter of a second, from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.7 seconds. Audi e-Tron Quattro finally reaches the maximum speed of 200 km / h.
Do not worry, Audi e-Tron has a beer in the body for 400 km (WLTP cycle, so the distance should be reliable). Much of its energy independence ( 30% of the autonomy) has also originated from an effective system of energy recovery under braking: in deceleration (stomping on the brake pedal, but also only releasing the “gas”), the engines electric work as an alternator and transform kinetic energy into electric current.
The Audi e-Tron is the first electric car to be rechargeable as standard with powers up to 150 kW. Thanks to the powerful high-voltage lithium-ion battery ( 95 kWh and 396 Volt ), housed under the cabin cell, the Ingolstadt electro-Suv can be refueled at all charging stations that comply with the European Combined Charging System standard ( CCS) and recover 80% of the autonomy in less than half an hour. You can of course also recharge from the home network, while the myAudi app will allow you to manage energy recovery operations even remotely.
2020 Audi e-Tron Quattro Design
Like every SUV of the brand, even Audi e-Tron ( 4,901 mm long , 1,935 mm wide and 1,616 mm high , with a wheelbase of 2,928 mm and a total load capacity of 660 liters ) adopts an octagonal single frame with vertical strips in the front , almost entirely closed and in light platinum gray, to underline the electric nature of the car. Along the lower edge of the LED floodlights(standard), four horizontal strips give life to the daytime running lights with specific e-Tron design. At the rear, the generous roof spoiler and the wide puller accentuate the sporty image, while at the bottom the four horizontal strips emphasize the absence of the exhaust terminals.
12 body colors, including the exclusive Antigua blue. Finally, the 2020 Audi e-Tron has an excellent coefficient of aerodynamic penetration ( Cx 0.27 ). Inside, the dashboard is subdivided by horizontal levels and generates a single wraparound arc ( wrap-around ) that extends to the door linings. The displays of the virtual exterior mirrors are ideally connected to the eyelid of the Audi virtual cockpit, whose images seem to be suspended in a vacuum, while the two displays of the MMI touch response system(respectively 10.1 and 8.6 inches) are inclined towards the driver. When turned off, the upper screen blends with the large Black Panel surface, resulting almost invisible.
We close with the world of driving assistance systems, also in this case brought to the next level. An adaptive assistance program adjusts the longitudinal and transverse dynamics, assisting the driver both in the management of acceleration and braking and in maintaining the speed and safety distance while driving in the column. The system recognizes the road markings, the vehicles on the adjacent lanes and the car in front. Combined with the efficiency assistant Audi e-Tron also decelerates and accelerates in a predictive way, analyzing sensor data, navigation, and road signs, adapting the pace before bends, during turns and roundabouts.
Dedicated to urban driving are assistance at crossroads and rear transversal traffic, lane changing device and exit warning, while parking maneuvers are simplified thanks to the parking assistant who autonomously drives Audi e-Tron in longitudinal and transverse spaces, both forward and back. The driver only has to accelerate and brake. The Remote Park Pilot and the Remote Garage Pilot will be introduced at a later date: the maneuver must be monitored, even from the outside.
2020 Audi e-Tron Quattro there is much more to be said, from connectivity services to various solutions to recharge freely wherever you are.
