Audi e-tron is here!
The exhilaration of an Audi. The design of an Audi. The craftsmanship of an Audi.
For the new Audi e-tron, we took all that. And made it electric, beginning with the Audi e-tron concept.
For the first time in an Audi production car, the Audi e-tron has the option of virtual door mirrors. They replace traditional glass mirrors with cameras that stream a view of what’s behind, onto displays mounted within the front doors. Far narrower than standard mirrors, they not only reduce drag, but also help cut the already impressively low wind noise. What’s more, their view is fully adjustable. Focus can be zoomed and moved depending on driving conditions; the result is better all-round visibility and enhanced safety for car and passengers.
As well as sensing your immediate surroundings, the Audi e-tron uses the networked intelligence of Audi connect to help you plan trips further afield.
Seamlessly, via the in-car MMI system, the MyAudi smartphone app, or desktop web portal, the e-tron offers a range of Audi connect systems, including the e-tron route planner. It calculates routes showing charging stations, shows their estimated charge times and incorporates these with traffic data to calculate your arrival time. With this easily-planned charging schedule, the e-tron is as suitable for longer trips as it is for everyday use.
Developed in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute in Erlangen, the Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System takes stereo or 5.1 recordings and conditions it for the unique 3D loudspeakers. In addition, a highly efficient amplifier drives 16 loudspeakers that produce an impressive 705 watts.
Pre-sense 360 warns you of objects out in front, even automatically applying the brakes when required. Whether it’s a pedestrian stepping out, or a car stopping suddenly, Pre-sense will help keep you safe.
Miles from home and you’re out of charge. It’s a fear many people have. But with Audi e-tron, that’s a thing of the past. Thanks to an ever-expanding network and easy home solutions, charging your e-tron is no problem – whenever and wherever you are. From plugging in at the shops to recharging overnight, e-tron is designed to fit around your life.
