The lower performance version of Audi’s first electric vehicle, the e-tron, will be available in the UK starting at £59,900, excluding the government’s £3,500 plug-in car grant.
The e-tron 50 is quite similar to its parent vehicle, featuring two electric motors in a similar size, however the vehicle has a smaller battery. Equipped with a 71 kWh battery, the 230 kW output. The lower performance was equalized by increasing the efficiency of the car and the lower weight of the battery, according to the manufacturer. The WLTP range is estimated at 190 miles, or 306 km.
A 7 kW home charger is included in the offer, which would take a solid over-night charge to fill the battery again, as we learned that the charging with an 11 kW charger would take around 7 hours, when the lower performance e-tron was initially announced. Towards the end of last year, Audi also announced intentions to produce the electric SUV in China, so we expect to see the e-tron 50 grow in popularity not only in the UK over the year.
