Audi Unveils its First-ever Electric SUV

Say “hello” to Audi’s first electric SUV – the Audi e-tron was unveiled in San Francisco in what was a monumental step forward for the car manufacturer.

Loaded with excellent features, the five-seater e-tron comes with air suspension, 20-inch wheels, LED lighting, seats with built-in heating and cooling, panoramic sunroof and inductive wireless smartphone charging.

The car is powered by two powerful electric motors that are locally CO2-neutral and virtually silent, unless you turn on the booming Bang & Olufsen stereo system.

The e-tron can be upgraded to include Audi’s driver assistance package, massage seats, a heads-up display, and power door closers, among other hi-tech features, which are not limited to 21-inch wheels, a special gray paint scheme, bright orange brake calipers, black leather interior, and a night vision camera in the dash.

Not enough? There’s a 720p display behind the steering wheel that provides a customizable layout of instrument cluster information like speed, battery level, and navigation. Although there is no official number, it is claimed that the electric SUV will exceed 400km on a single charge.

The Audi e-tron will be available in Europe at the end of 2018 for a starting price of S$128,100. For more information, visit
