2019 Audi E-Tron, the EV crossover from Audi

Is here. Debuted some days later than its main competitor, the Mercedes-Benz EQC. Is the Audi bullet aimed at the center of the EV market: the Audi E-Tron crossover.


This vehicle is a conventional Audi at the exterior, with a strong resemblance with the Audi Q8, and some styling elements from the Q2 (those fenders...). The grille is a big Audi grille, with the logical changes for an EV. The tailligths can come from other Audi vehicle, too.
In the interior, the history continue... the good materials, the good ergonomics, big screens... only an extrange gold accents and those cameras replacing the side rear view mirrors say this is the E-Tron.


Audi chose for its 1st electric crossover the same way Mercedes-Benz chose: a familiar apperance, and some styling touch to diferentiate its electric vehicles from the rest of the lineup. IMO, is a smart choice.



here the pics...

I like it. Looks good and has a normal interior. This and the I-Pace are the two EVs I really like.

You can see this BEV Utility segment coming into focus now, the Mach1 is similar.

Range is still not impressive, especially when you consider they are using the notoriously optimistic and inaccurate NEDC standard to measure it. We need the EPA estimates.

Re: 2019 Audi E-Tron, the EV crossover from Audi

Itís a handsome vehicle. Love the interior. Price is acceptable given itís intended market. But not keen on the tail lights and rear wiper stuck on the back like an afterthought. Both look cheap. Itís fine on a mainstream product but unacceptable on a luxury. I wish more manufacturers would put some effort into hiding it like Cadillac does.

I love everything except I wish designers would figure out something cool to do with grilles for EVs. This one just looks dumb, all things considered.

This is the first BEV grille face I donít mind for a CUV. I like that they used a bright finish instead of a matte black, fake air opening style. I donít like the face-less style like Tesla put on their X.

A grille is such an anachronism on an electric car, I think we need to get more creative with the "face" of an EV. Tesla was successful at IMO.
