Everyday Life with the Audi e-tron Electric Car

Audi e-tron Electric Car

Sinclair Audi have teamed up with Sarah John, Commercial Director from the Boss Brewing Company in Swansea to get her take on everyday life with the new Audi e-tron Electric Car.

What is the Audi e-tron?

The Audi e-tron is the most-advanced Audi yet. It’s a fully electric, 5-door SUV with a streamlined body that not only gives the Audi e-tron a dramatic appearance but also gives it exceptional aerodynamics that promote efficiency and an almost silent drive. The octagonal grille clearly distinguishes it as an Audi SUV, but once inside and you’ll see the e-tron’s modern, uncluttered design accentuates the cabin’s spaciousness, and unlike conventional models, there’s no transmission tunnel to take up interior space.

Audi Electric Vehicle Power

With the Audi e-tron, electric efficiency sacrifices nothing to performance; electric motors at the front and rear produce 300kW of power, impressively taking this full-sized SUV from 0-62mph in less than 6 seconds, and unlike its petrol or diesel-powered siblings the acceleration is almost instant, providing a thrilling sensation from launch. The e-tron has a range of up to 237 miles on a single full charge, more than enough for most commutes or business journeys.

Key takeaways from Sarah’s Road Test

“I'm on the road a lot so having the right car is really important to me, and Sinclair Audi has given me the new Audi e-tron to test. Three things that are important to me are tech, space and as it's an electric car the range of the car. The tech is really fantastic, it's got sat-nav and what's really handy is you can actually put the address in before you leave and it's got a wireless phone charger which is great. I also really like the adaptive cruise control so it's a bit different to a standard cruise control as it actually slows you down if the car in front of you slows down.”

“It's really comfortable for long journeys and it's got virtual door mirrors, rather than having a mirror on each side you've got a camera which you can really easily adjust. it's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside so as part of my job I'm taking a lot of samples on the road, whether that's to trade shows or to visit customers, so I need a lot of boot space. It can recharge in up to 50 minutes as well so you know you can pop up and do your shopping and your cars charged for you which is really handy!”

“After spending the day with the Audi e-tron I'm really impressed and it's definitely something I would consider buying.”
