First test drive in the Audi e-tron quattro: Whisper quiet and luxury battery electric car
How does it feel to drive a car with side mirror in place of digital cameras and the driver follows the mirror instead of the dash ends, I placed the seven-inch screen.

it Was as if I moved suddenly for a future car in the driver's seat and in a way, that's what I was.

the Audi e-tron 55 the quattro is the first series production car in Europe, where these digital mirrors are very common in road use. Previously, Lexus has presented digipeilitekniikkaansa in the USA.

New electric-Audi presented the desert area nearby Abu dhabi's Masdar City, which has somewhat surprisingly become known as renewable resources, such as wind power, use. AUDI

Strange it initially seems. Eyes get instinctively mirrors doors etukulmista.

Mirrors were gathering international media representatives as well as thank you for that reproach. Thanks mm, that's the wind noise and the fact that the mirrors adjust the clock time according to the auto.

Digipeilien the problem is the reflections and visibility fro the glass on the screen when viewing. PENTTI J. rönkkö narrow digipeilin frame does not exactly cause the wind noise. PENTTI J. RÖNKKÖ

the Reproaches of the mirror were visible harm to the reflective and that appears to dim when the screen look in the sun glasses through.

How to narrow the digital mirror you then take the snow and cold? Audi's engineers, according to even the standards mirror the better, because the digital camera is heated and narrow to prevent snow accumulating on the lens.

Fortunately – or unfortunately for – digipeilit do not belong to the car's standard equipment and they even have the first to market ends up on the car.

the E-tron uses the same, but modified, the basic structure as the Audi Q5. The E-tron is however in the range of approximately 24 centimetres longer. PENTTI J. RÖNKKÖ

the Cockpit and cabin are very well finished and all shining the same quality feel as other Audeista. The cabin's silence to pay special attention to. Only lightweight electric motor noise from somewhere behind reflects the ear, but the main sound source of the ring tones.

the Audi e-tron is a high-level premium car. All Finland imported cars is excellently equipped already as a standard. The car has among other things always the standard digital to be converted to a dashboard, which is two large touch screen.

the Cockpit is familiar to all new big Audi models. PENTTI J. rönkkö gear stick, or rather I chose is a customized e-tron. PENTTI J. RÖNKKÖ

the electric car is the e-tron pretty easily from the cockpit would recognize.

As a small concession to the gear stick is, however, designed only for the e-tron for a hand rest for an installed support next.

a single-speed gearbox found in normal ajoasetus D and the sporty S, which raise the electric motors power and torque. And, of course, is the reverse.

the Normal ns. euro equipment in addition to English-in the car is always the seat heaters and tow hitch capacity. Towing capacity is 1,800 pounds.

Looseness than the Q7 in the eu

the Audi e-tron is about 4.9 meters long, almost 24 inches longer than the Audi Q5 and it is also five inches width higher (1,94 m).

the Cabin will be told pull taxes up to the Audi Q7 for its facilities on behalf of and may be true.

Finished and high-quality cabin. PENTTI J. rönkkö behind is turning into the most fun up until the space. PENTTI J. RÖNKKÖ

I found rear space you really loose: it was both legs - the main mode enough and the central casing of the intervention, also the central spot is capable of an adult either sit.

the Luggage compartment behind is drafty, 600 liters, but the loading sill is left high. The luggage compartment under the floor is a little storage space and, inter alia, a tire patch kit. Dashboard below is still 60 litres of additional luggage space Tesla.

Quiet and comfortable

drive of e-tron left a good impression. - Adjusting air suspension is standard and progressive control adjusts the speed according to.

the Mountain fast in the bend-driving a car under the floor placed the batteries provide a low center of gravity and the weight allocation of 50:50 ratio of reward.

the Car remained in the bend of the hands puskematta still even speeds, where the so-called. basic car grip was already loose.

a new kind of quattro-four-wheel drive is built to the front and rear invested electric motor, producing a total of 361 horsepower peak power and the 561 Nm peak of torque.

the Boost function (transmission P-position) power to get more (408 hp) and peak torque always 664 Nm, but the power increase on the flip side is lyhenevä business trip.

the Car rolls in normal driving in the rear-driven and also the maximum acceleration applied to the rear of the engine.

Slippage when the front-wheel drive is switched fast as lightning game.

the Car is so fast, but does not seek any rush to, for example, tesla's readings. The electric car, the car will be gone the first ten meters really fast, because the full torque is used from zero from.

the Peak of the additional boost the power of the e-tron accelerates from zero to hundred in 5.7 seconds. Without the boost goes to 0.9 seconds longer.

Also at highway speeds the electric motors are responsive without delays in gas pedal press.

Audi's range is a real-life simulation of the WLTP, norm, about 400 miles. Read head that a third of the range of the collected rekuperaation i.e., the deceleration energy of the collection.

Audi accumulate the deceleration energy of the three power levels, with a small allows practice free reeling and the most effective level operates as if the electronic brake. Audi is not, however, want to make the deceleration energy recovery from fully hydraulic brakes with competing systems. So the brakes have to continue to press, if you want to stop the car

driving in raskainkaan energy recovery didn't seem to interfere with braking requirements.

Consumption of about 34 kWh/100 km

the first test drive in the car average fuel consumption gauge was showing 130 km/h highway speeds of about 34 kWh average consumption when the air conditioning blew full blast. This consumption range would be a little over 300 miles

When we dropped the Abu Dhabi 140 km/h in the restricted area speed about 115 km/h, so the fuel consumption fell at a steady run, about 31 kWh, i.e. driving style will determine how far you really get.

the Official consumption is WLTP under 22,5 – 26,2 kWh, but the electricity in the car if you where driving conditions and driving style determine the consumption.

similarly, when we took the car for a photo session on the fast acceleration, then the remaining activities of the mobile begins to melt right before my eyes. The electric car is forced to learn to drive in anticipation of and in moderation.

in Half an hour, get about 300 miles range. PENTTI J. RÖNKKÖ

the test drive route we break for lunch during a battery load was 150 kW quick charger, which also bait out of more than 140 kW. This charger in the car was 80%, i.e. 300-mile range of providers charging around 20 minutes. The official time 80% of the charging power charger is half an hour.

standard features-11 kW charger (three phase power) with a battery load of 6.5 hours to 80%, but electric cars, it the last 20% is heavy. Then the charging time is stretched double.

the Optional sale is becoming also a 22 kW charger to get the boost for charging at home too.

the Audi e-tron is Audi's first fully electric car and starting it, that the Audi-models 1/3 is electrified in 2030. The figure also includes a hybrid version.

the Basics of Audi's and other european brands to the indexer to make electric cars find the almighty and EU requirements. Already in 2020 the market of new cars average emissions of each manufacturer in stay 95 g/km.

the Goal is so hard, that without electric cars and hybrids that won't let me. And by the way without dieseleitäkin. Audi's model range in both petrol and diesel models hold their positions for a long time.

the Audi e-tron quattro is a basket-type of SUV, i.e. the crossover in Finnish. It has the same feel as the Q5, and no wonder, because it is based on the same but heavily modified MLB-base plate than the Q5, but: the e-tron's powertrain is fully electric.
