An electric atmosphere at Teesside Audi as new e-tron rolls into town

Motoring fans on Teesside have been treated to one of the stand out car launches of 2019, as the new all-electric Audi e-tron was previewed at Teesside Audi.

 

The first fully electric model for the brand, the Audi e-tron is due to be released in April and is expected to set the standard for luxury electric vehicles, with features that will take the technology to the next stage of development.

 

But before it does, Audi has been touring the country with the car, allowing motoring enthusiasts to get up close to what many consider to be the new challenger to the Jaguar I-PACE when it comes to today’s new breed of luxury EVs.

 

A world class leading car in terms of build quality, The SUV provides a zero-emissions alternative to the likes of the BMW X4 and Mercedes GLC and features a plethora of technological advancements.

 

Among the more innovative features on the Launch Edition is the integration of two high-definition cameras in place of traditional door mirrors, adaptive air suspension, LED headlights and charging points on both sides.

 

Placed under the passenger compartment, its 95kWh 36-cell battery system drives two electric motors that allow it to go from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds, with its 402bhp helping it to achieve a top speed 124mph.

The combination of a classic Audi look and era defining technology certainly turned a few heads during the car’s visit to Teesside Audi, part of the Lookers group, with fans eager to voice their opinions.

Teesside Audi customer Andrew, who has ordered the car himself, said: “I think the new e-tron looks great and better in real life than all the pictures I have previously seen as I have followed its progress through to launch. The styling clearly follows all the traditions of the Q series – which I am a great fan of. The rear design of the car I particularly like as it provides its own genuine character. I cannot wait to get my own!”

 

Motor journalists have already heaped praise on the car for its practicality and classic Audi looks, while pointing out that it represents the perfect stepping stone for those unsure about the potential of electric motoring.

 

Seamus Watson, Head of Business at Teesside Audi, said: “It’s been very exciting here at Teesside Audi. To get the chance to showcase what could turn out to be an era-defining car for Audi was a massive privilege. Our customers also appreciated the chance to see the car in person and had nothing but high praise to share with us. We can’t wait to welcome it into the showroom permanently once it’s launched officially.”
