Audi Teases E-Tron With Electric Has Gone Thrilling Video

SEP 13 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 28

As the official unveiling nears, Audi releases another e-tron teaser.

Audi will take the cover off its all-new 2019 e-tron electric vehicle next week. InsideEVs will be in attendance at the much-anticipated event in San Francisco on Monday, September 17. We can’t wait to finally see the car without the camo, although we admit that we’ve started to take a liking to the black, white, and red e-tron that we’ve seen so much of. Yesterday, we shared the automaker’s first new teaser, and above you’ll see another.

While we don’t have any official specs (hopefully that will change next week), Audi has previously shared that the e-tron will feature dual electric motors delivering a combined 355 horsepower (265 kilowatts) and 414 pound-feet (561 Newton-meters) of torque. A boost mode will allow the powertrain to push out 402 hp and 490 lb-ft (664 Nm) for eight seconds.

According to Audi, the e-tron will offer over 248.5 miles of range (400 kilometers) in the World Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) cycle by way of a 95-kWh battery pack. It’s expected to pull off a zero-to-62 mph (100 kph) sprint in under six seconds. Keep in mind that no official EPA figures or estimates are available at this time.

The 2019 Audi e-tron is already in production, however, we don’t have information about when it will go on sale in the U.S. Audi will be broadcasting the upcoming premiere live via satellite over the internet and on smartTV.

Video Description via Audi Netherlands on YouTube:

Electric has gone thrilling has a familiar tone to it. Remember Mercedes-Benz’ “Electric Now Has A Mercedes?”

lol, Thrillingly none thrilling. Slower than the competition, Really living in a bubble over in Ingolstadt.

Audi & all the other German EV Car Makers are like a Chicken Before, During, & while it’s Laying an Egg., It never Stops CLUCKING !

ht_010

If you’re going to takes shots at the Germans, how about throwing a stone in the ponds of Buick, Lincoln, Dodge, Toyota/Lexus, Volvo, Subaru and Mazda. Of all these brands only Volvo and Toyota have PHEV’s available now. And only Volvo has outlined their EV plans.

Johan Mo

The typical Tesla hardcore fan is jealous at the German auto makers because of their big plans and the fact that they historically DO deliver. I own a Tesla myself, but really appreciate the massive German EV plans.

amta

Germans have N0 EV that anyone would envy..they constantly keep on Clucking about their Out Dated prototypes & Put 0ut No Product… I wish they would build something worth while that the people want to Buy..

Speculawyer

Because we expect better from the Germans. So it is kind of a compliment.

At this point, I really don’t expect anything but obsolete dreck from Lincoln, Dodge, Subaru and Mazda. I mock Toyota all the time for their crazy groupthink hydrogen fuel cell pipedream.

amta

I can’t stand the ones you mention “At All”….BTW , I ‘ve driving new Mercedes for the last 25yrs , I don’t like them because all they do is Talk about EV’s Make Prototypes & Nothing Else . The Other guys Say little to Nothing & Do Nothing…

R.S

Two different people making similar grammatical errors?

“competition, Really living” “like a Chicken Before, During”

If you want to pretend to be two people, then make one look crazy and the other one normal.

Prsnep

Always the same anti-EV comments from supposed EV fans.

Hans Wurst

I’ve seen one on the road a few days ago. Even in camouflage it looked infinitely more attractive than any Model X. This is going to sell like crazy. Finally a quality EV!

ht_010

Just because they’re willing to do more tests before bringing a vehicle to market doesn’t mean they’re living in a bubble.
But I do agree that this wasn’t all too thrilling.
When e-Tron production is in full force and deliveries have started, I believe that the 150 kw charging network (Tesla will still have a better network, albeit at 118 kw) will be in place to support those buyers.

Vexar

I genuinely hope they succeed beyond expectations. GM EV1 got the ball rolling, then killed it (Who Killed the Electric Car?), Tesla dashed from nothing in 2008, and in the end, if it wasn’t for the California Air Resource Board, the Paris Accord, and other government influences, lawsuits, and arrests, Audi would quietly be selling us the lie of their Eco-washed Turbocharged Direct Injection diesel engines and shrug their shoulders when we face the health, oceanic, and atmospheric problems worsen to the point that Mad Max shows prophecy, not fiction.

If only we did run out of oil. Cenex, BP, Shell, Aramco, Exxon, OPEC, you all made it so cheap at the beginning. Who knew there was a price to pay a century later?

R.S

I guess we could also fault us consumers here, though.

Nissan built capacity for over 250k Leafs a year and totally failed, while over 500k people bought a Ford F-series pickup, just in the US. And I guess many really didn’t need it.

Car companies will sell what sells. If people don’t care for EVs, unless they can do 0-60 very quickly and have over 200 miles of range, then no one could have sold tons of them 20 years ago and even 10 years ago the technology just wasn’t there.

I think we could have been faster and car companies were lazy, but we consumers were as well. People just don’t buy green cars, unless they don’t have to sacrifice anything. And even now, you can see many people that buy a Model 3 because it’s a Tesla, not because it’s electric. Otherwise more people would have bought a Bolt…

I really dislike the thin rear view camera, I’d prefer a hidden non-visible camera. maybe on the pillar or fender. Not sure if its possible or not.

NeilBlanchard

I prefer any video mirror, over an optical mirror. Video mirrors have no blind spots (or they should) and they reduce both the Cd and the frontal area of the car.

What we need is for video mirrors to be allowed for use, in the regulations. Surely, if we are using cameras for autonomous driving and safety systems – we can allow video mirrors.

Nono13

I also read that because they are tinier, the cameras generate less aerodynamic noise.

I am all for cameras. But as always the regulations are not adapted fast enough. Even though cameras already appeared years ago (maybe ten) on prototypes.

hangtime10

I’m sure it’s possible. But automakers probably have to play by the various rules dictated by various countries. Just look at the adaptive high beams created by the Germans. They’re ready to go but the different jurisdictions say otherwise. I read some time ago that the US rules for headlights date back some 50+ years. I would think that the sideview mirrors have some regulations that need to be changed before anyone can simply put a sleek camera on the sides to replace the mirrors.

Another Euro point of view

Current battery technology and tall SUV is not the best mix. Looking forward to batteries with 300 Wh/kg energy density and able to sustain 300 kW fast charge. However I am sure those early electric SUV will find their customers.

Speculawyer

Yep. It can be done but it is very expensive. I suspect that this is why Tesla did the Model 3 before the Model Y.

I kinda think that PHEVs are what should go into SUVs right now. But I could be wrong…maybe battery costs will drop fast enough to skip the PHEV step. But clearly, the Model X is way outside the price range for most people.

Get Real

Yeah, like maybe GM putting upsized Voltec system into some SUVS and trucks, or even CUVs for that matter?

Speculawyer

I’ve been screaming for that for years. I suspect they don’t do it because the gas SUVs & trucks are the profit center….PHEV versions won’t be as profitable.

David

That’s pretty much what the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is, and they’ve had that in production for 4 years now.

Lawrence

Remind me why this thing isn’t considered a wagon.

R.S

Why isn’t the i-Pace a hatchback? Why isn’t the Model X a minivan? Why does the BMW X6 exist?

Marketing!

Lawrence

People are so naive. Slap some plastic on the fender and call it a SUV and it gets a gazillion in sales. Call it a wagon and even an included suitcase full of money can’t get it sold off the dealer lots.

The Model X isn’t useful enough to be worthy to be in the minivan class. I always rent minivans when on vacation. They’re so ridiculously easy to travel with.

Hans Wurst

It’s much higher..,clearly SUV like. Between Q5 and Q7 on the road. Much more attractive than both.

Pluto

Automakers claiming the EV market is different by them showing up late… Both Mercedes and Audi. LOL

“Electric now has a Mercedes”
“Electric has gone Audi”

Hans Wurst

If there’s one thing history has told us it’s that the Germans might come late,but they always come heavy because they take their time to do it right. And yes, this was about cars.
