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?

    In order to reach its sales target of 200 units a year, the e-tron will not only have to be a very good EV, but it will also have to deliver as a regular premium SUV. As the latter, it does the job very well – it looks the part, it is spacious and practical, the ride is excellent and performance is very strong. SUVs, however, are also expected to be great long-distance cruisers. While the e-tron’s performance and handling most certainly make it well-suited for the highways, its 382km of highway range isn’t sufficient enough, which is the case with other EVs in its class too.

    Air suspension can be raised by 50mm, and also lowered by 39mm from its normal ride height.

    Remove the long-distance commuting from the equation, however, and it performs very well as an urban EV. A real-world city range of about 350km makes it more than capable of the routine urban grind, and performance is as smooth and as strong as it gets. So if it’s an easy-to-drive luxury SUV that you seek, one which you’ll enjoy driving without having the slightest guilt of harmful tailpipe emissions, the e-tron deserves a good hard look.
