The Audi e-tron 50 quattro has been revealed overnight, it will serve as the entry level model in the brand’s fully-electric e-tron range.
The e-tron 50 uses a 71kWh battery pack to drive two electric motors (one on each axle) that deliver 230kW of power and 540Nm of torque. According to WLTP testing, a driving range of 300 kilometres is possible with a full charge.
When it comes to charging, the e-tron 50 quattro can charge with up to 120kW at fast-charge stations, meaning that the battery capacity can be recharged to 80 per cent in approximately half an hour. It supports a charging capacity of up to 2.3kW with a 230V domestic outlet and up to 11kW when connected to a 400V industrial charge point.
Performance wise, the 0-100km/h dash takes 7.0 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 190km/h.
For context, the e-tron 50 gives away 35kW, 21Nm and 100km of range when compared to the e-tron 55. It’s also 0.5 seconds slower to 100km/h and the top speed has been wound back by 10km/h.
Production of the Audi e-tron 50 quattro will begin later this year before a European launch in 2020. Audi’s local arm is yet to confirm when the car will be available locally.
