What You Will Like

Pricing for the e-tron starts around $75,000, which places it at starting price below that of the Tesla Model X, the Audi's closest rival. The e-tron's claimed range is competitive with the Tesla's, as is its 0-60 mph performance numbers. Unlike Tesla however, Audi has been building cars for decades and with that comes great experience designing, building and providing a certain luxury/performance experience. For some, the Audi's conservative styling is a benefit as it looks a lot like other conventional crossovers. The e-tron also styled to look like other Audis, which is to say it's the most stylish electric vehicles available from any automaker.

What's New For 2019

The Audi e-tron is a brand-new vehicle from the German automaker. It's a mid-sized, 5-passenger SUV designed to go toe-to-toe with the Tesla Model X. The Audi e-tron is powered by two electric motors which can be charged at one's house or through one of the fast charging stations that have been popping up all over America. Unlike the Toyota Prius or the Chevrolet Volt, but like the Tesla, the e-tron is fully electric, which means that owners will never visit the gas station to put more fuel in their cars.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

The 2019 Audi e-tron, a spacious crossover SUV, is the first all-electric car from Audi. It delivers all the things Audi is known for, including a warm and well-detailed cabin and all-wheel drive. It slots into the Audi lineup between the midsize Q5 and larger Q7 and Q8, but looks more like the Allroad wagon.

The e-tron is powered by two electric motors, one at the front and one at the rear. Its silent acceleration makes it feel even faster than its 0-60 mph capability in a very brief 5.5 seconds, which it manages to achieve despite carrying 1,540 pounds of batteries, mounted below the passenger floor. And it can still tow another 4,000 pounds, when equipped with the towing package. It rides on an air suspension, which helps dampen the effects of that weight.

An innovative braking system helps maximize regenerative braking to recover energy when decelerating, while another new system is designed to prevent the dramatic loss of range in cold weather. Roughly like recycling, it uses power loss from the electrical components for cabin heating.

These features help give the e-tron an EPA-rated range of 204 miles from its 95-kwh battery pack. In our test run, we got close to the EPA rating.

That’s less than its main rival the Jaguar I-Pace, which has an EPA range of 234 miles with its 90-kwh battery pack, and less than the Tesla Model X, which gets 238 miles from its 75-kwh battery pack (75D) and up to 295 miles from its 100-kwh battery pack (100D). It’s similar to the range provided by the new Mercedes EQC.

The Audi e-tron charges very quickly, to 80 percent on a 150-kw CCS (Combo) DC fast charger in just 30 minutes. Those chargers are becoming increasingly common and are part of Electrify America’s charging-infrastructure push. With a Level 2 AC charger—the kind that you might have installed at home or in the garage, or find at some hotels—the e-tron can be fully charged in as little as 9 hours.

The e-tron has Drive Select, with six modes: Auto, Comfort, Efficiency, Individual, Offroad, and Allroad. It maneuvers well and handles like a lighter vehicle, but it’s heavy nonetheless.

The ride is calm, composed and comfortable, and the e-tron is silent beyond the soundless powerplant. Smaller and cheaper electric cars tend to transmit a lot of road noise, which can be heard because there’s no engine to smother the thumps of the suspension and whining of the motor; but the luxurious cabin of the e-tron is quiet at all times.

The 2019 e-tron hasn’t been crash-tested or rated for safety by either of the U.S. agencies, but automatic emergency braking is standard, along with active lane control. Other active self-driving features are optional.

Lineup

The Audi e-tron comes in Premium Plus, and Prestige models.

Standard features on Premium Plus ($74,800) include heated and cooled front seats, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, surround-view cameras with virtual 3D view, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and Audi’s new touchscreen infotainment system.

A Driver Assistance package for $2,850 brings adaptive cruise control with turn assist, maneuver assist, and efficiency assistant—a set of predictive functions governing the behavior of the powertrain and chassis systems. It also includes lane departure prevention, an intersection assistant, traffic-sign recognition, and Traffic Jam assist, which controls the brakes, steering, and accelerator.

The Prestige model, for about $7,000 more, makes that Driver Assistance package standard, while adding a head-up display, an air quality package with ionizer and fragrance, power door closers, and individual contour seats with Valcona leather and a cooling massage function for the front.

A $900 Cold Weather package adds adaptive wipers with heated washer jets, heated outboard rear seats, and a higher-output heater with enhanced cabin and battery pre-conditioning. Rear side airbags are a $400 option, and the tow package is $650.

Walkaround

Compared its rivals, the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X, the styling of the Audi e-tron is more cohesive and its proportions better balanced. Its profile lands between the Q7 crossover and Allroad A6 wagon. It’s handsome and classy, if not very daring.

Since an electric vehicle doesn’t have a big engine in front, the e-tron’s hood could be shorter, but it’s not. Instead, there is a front trunk, or ”frunk,” where charging cables can be stored, or a couple of small bags.

Interior

The cabin is warm, understated, and mature. There is a soft ambience that isn’t disturbed by the dark trim that frames the touchscreens. There’s some matte-metallic trim on the dash, console, and steering wheel, but not too much.

The e-tron uses Audi’s new MMI Touch Response system that moves the controls almost entirely to touchscreens. There are two haptic-feedback touchscreens: the top screen is 10.1 inches and used audio, navigation, information services, and charging; the lower screen is 8.6 inches and used for climate control and other vehicle functions. The lower screen also recognizes handwriting, and there are expanded voice commands.

The driver’s position feels high like an SUV because the beltline is low. The front seats are great, very supportive, while the rear seats are exceptionally comfortable for two people. The battery pack is mounted low enough that the floor doesn’t have to curve awkwardly.

The cargo space isn’t compromised either: 28.5 cubic feet behind the rear seat and 57 cubic feet with it folded.

Driving Impressions

Besides being quiet and quick, the e-tron is precise and confident. Its vast torque comes in an instant, while its ride and handling are above average. Its all-weather capability, with an ability to go into modest off-road terrain, make it as versatile as a gas-powered SUV, except of course for that range limitation.

The e-tron has two motors that each drive one axle. The rear motor makes 224 horsepower and 262 pound-feet, while the front motor makes 184 hp and 228 lb-ft. Since the motors produce nearly all of their torque just past 0 rpm, there’s no need for a transmission with gears. Maximum power comes through a Boost mode that can sustain its peak for eight seconds.

The e-tron can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds, but it feels much quicker because it’s so effortless and instantaneous, not to mention silent–the only time you hear the whine of the motors is when the driver is at their most insistent.

The brakes in the e-tron are unlike those in any other electric vehicle. It’s a complex, electromechanical system that uses the motor/generators when you lightly push on the brake pedal, and the brake pads only when more you push more firmly.

There are three settings for regeneration that occurs when you back off the throttle but don’t touch the brake. The first mode and smoothest is essentially coast mode, while the third and most aggressive mode feels like driving a car with a gearbox in a low gear (about 0.18g of deceleration). The middle Automatic mode is the smart one; sensors gauge the distance from the car ahead, map data, and more.

The e-tron is also programmed to “idle creep;” that is, with you foot off the brake pedal, it will move slowly forward, like a gas car. We like this too, if only because it is reassuring. Too many times, we’ve climbed into an electric car and haven’t known if it’s ready to go until we step on the accelerator.

The e-tron has Drive Select, with six modes: Auto, Comfort, Efficiency, Individual, Offroad, and Allroad. Depending on what’s dialed up, the air suspension can raise the e-tron by 3.0 inches for moderate off-roading or deep snow (we did some churning through sand in an early drive). Further modes affect the steering and ride to Comfortable, Balanced, and Dynamic.

The e-tron is easy to maneuver in parking lots, where you can’t feel the weight. On curvy roads, the low center of gravity from the battery pack’s mounting under the floor helps the car feel balanced and confident, even though the suspension isn’t tuned to be particularly sharp, firm, or performance-focused.

Summary

It’s a brave new world, and this is a brave new type of vehicle. Regardless of how well the 2019 Audi e-tron sells, there will be more like it in the future. We would be wary of buying any first-year electric car with this many innovations, especially knowing rivals are on their way, but those who can afford it might find the price of exclusivity to be acceptable. As long as everything works, and you don’t drive more than 200 miles a day, it can be almost as functional as a Subaru Outback.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
