Audi e-tron 55 quattro review, road test

    Can this premium luxury, all-electric Audi SUV meet the company’s ambitious 200 units per year sales target?

    The e-tron 55’s standard features list includes 20-inch wheels, Matrix LED headlamps, a panoramic sunroof, Audi’s virtual cockpit (fully-digital instrument cluster), twin screens – one for the infotainment and the other for climate control – both offering haptic feedback. In addition, you get a four-zone climate control, air suspension, wireless charging, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (wired) and an electric tailgate.

    Virtual cockpit has a plethora of viewing options and clear displays.

    Audi offers a laundry list of optional features which include a 16-speaker, 705W Bang and Olufsen premium sound system, a 360-degree camera, head-up display, on-board air purifier and perfume, ambient lighting with 30 colour options, and soft-closing doors. Then there are the optional digital Matrix LED headlamps which have a cool trick up their sleeve – apart from lighting up the road very well, these also perform a theatrical light show whenever you lock/unlock the vehicle.

    Headlamps project a fancy light show upon locking or unlocking.

    Features such as ventilated seats, wireless phone connectivity and connected car tech, to name a few, are missing, and users who seek deeper and geeky EV-related information on the screens will be left a bit shortchanged with the oversimplified displays on offer.

    Excellent: A full 1 lakh less than the 2-door Thar



    Decent: As a second car for off-road enthusiasts



    Terrible: Way too pricey for a compact Maruti SUV
