Australian specs and pricing have been announced for the 2020 Audi e-tron range ahead of a local arrival in September.
Competing against the Mercedes-Benz EQC, Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X, the e-tron will arrive locally in both SUV and Sportback body styles priced from $137,700 and $148,700 plus on-road costs respectively.
Along with the choice of body styles, the e-tron will be available with a choice of all-wheel drive powertrains dubbed 50 quattro and 55 quattro.
The e-tron 50 quattro models use a 71kW battery pack to produce 230kW of power and 540Nm of torque. With a fully charged battery, the claimed driving range is 336km (WLTP cycle) while the 0-100km/h dash takes 6.8 seconds.
Moving to the 55 quattro variant sees the outputs increase to 300kW and 664Nm thanks to a larger 95kWh battery. The driving range jumps to 436km while the 0-100km/h sprint drops to 5.7 seconds.
All models are supplied with an 11kW AC home-charging kit as standard, however, buyers are required to arrange professional installation. Audi will offer a comprehensive 'home check' consultation and installation process in partnership with JETCharge.
The 11kW home-charger solution can replenish the e-tron 55 variants from empty to full in 8.5 hours, and the e-tron 50 in six hours.
Using a 150kW DC fast-charger (120kW for e-tron 50) can restore 80 per cent of charge in 30 minutes, or a full charge in only 45 minutes.
Buyers will get a six-year subscription to the Chargefox charging network which provides owners access to all ultra-rapid, and selected fast and standard chargers within the Chargefox network.
The e-tron is backed by a three-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty, however, the drivetrain is covered by an eight-year/160,000km warranty.
Audi says the torque delivery of the electric motors allows all e-tron models to tow up to 1800kg.
The SUV and Sportback can hold 660 litres and 615 litres of luggage respectively, both include 40:20:40 split-fold rear seats. The front boot can also stow up to 60 litres of luggage.
Both powertrain options share specification levels meaning the only difference is the larger battery pack.
Equipment highlights include Matrix LED headlights, 20-inch Audi sport alloy wheels, an S line exterior package, adaptive air suspension, the MMI Navigation plus infotainment system, the Audi virtual cockpit, wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless phone charging.
Standard safety kit includes an autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, 360-degree cameras, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic assist, intersection assist, collision avoidance assist, turn assist, exit warning and tyre pressure monitor. The e-tron has been awarded a five-star ANCAP safety rating.
At launch, Audi will also offer both body styles of the e-tron 55 quattro in a First Edition trim which adds virtual exterior mirrors, unique 21-inch alloy wheels, orange brake calipers, Matrix LED headlights, black exterior styling elements, a head-up display, a 705W Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system, S sport front seats and interior highlights, four-zone climate control and privacy glass.
The First Edition will be limited to 70 examples nationally.
