Audi e-tron Is Ready For Everyday Adventure With This Roof Box

NOV 28 2018 BY MARK KANE 7

Audi e-tron’s roof box or Tesla Model X’s falcon wing doors?

In one of the most recent ads, Audi presents the e-tron as an electric SUV ready for everyday adventure.

There are Musk have features you will not find in a Tesla Model X, like the roofbox. To us, the e-tron and Model X are on opposite sides – e-tron is a more conventional car, while the Model X with the falcon wing doors is more a “look at me”. As the established manufacturers finally get into EVs, we will have an opportunity to see which approach is more preferred by the customers.

Because of some delays, the Audi e-tron is expected in Norway in December. Other markets in Europe probably will get first deliveries early in 2019.

Skis, kayaks, boxes on the roof, for the win.

Or in the Rivian gear tunnel!

Hard to fit a 5-6 meter long kayak there. X-country skis may be difficult too. Not sure how wide the vehicle is.
But for smaller objects, it looks like a safe and practical solutions.

It’ll fit a couple of chainsaws! Or a body…

Agreed, the length of that gear tunnel wouldn’t fit any of my alpine skis. Kids skis, sure.

I wonder how much of a range hit that will have.
