Up until recently, if you wanted to buy an electric car you would have a very limited choice of models, from only a few manufacturers. It would often have been the choice between a Nissan Leaf or a luxurious Tesla, with no in between. Thankfully, there have been a vast number of new entries to the industry, and it’s fantastic to see! One of which being the Audi e-tron. What’s not to love about it?
In our latest blog post we will be looking at the reasons why you should buy an Audi e-tron, as well as some of the other electric vehicles for sale at EV Sales.
10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BUY AN AUDI E-TRON
The Audi e-tron first hit the road in 2019. The e-tron brand was originally established in 2009, but it took the company 10 years to make use of their technology in this SUV. As they say though, you can’t rush perfection!
So what’s so great about the Audi e-tron we hear you ask? Well where do we start!
Let’s get straight down to it, the price. We are all aware that the price to buy a new electric vehicle is considerably higher than a standard combustion engine car. However, if we compare the Audi e-tron to another luxury vehicle such as the Tesla Model X, there is a substantial difference in what the driver will get for the money they spend. Being a similar sized vehicle, the Audi e-tron is amazing value for money!
It pays to do the maths and research various other cars instead of just considering the main competitors.
Charging the Battery
If you’re new to driving an electric car then you’ll soon find out that fuelling your vehicle is a very different process to stopping at a petrol station. It will require you to plan your route, and will take slightly longer to charge your vehicle, and no one likes to wait!
Did you know that Audi were the first to come up with a 150kW DC high speed charging system? Drivers will be able to get around 50 miles of charge in just 10 minutes. Alternatively, they could charge up from 0 – 80% in just 30 minutes. Impressive, right?
We would all love to have a car that has the most up to date technology and exciting features, and to a certain degree, the Audi e-tron offers just that.
Electric vehicles are portrayed to the public as being futuristic, and Audi has stuck with this image and designed the e-tron with cameras instead of wing mirrors. Some drivers will question the convenience and reliability behind this feature, but it is certainly a cool, unique feature to have in a car. The particular Audi e-tron we have for sale has standard mirrors, but who’s to say that we won’t have one for sale in future with camera mirrors!
Plenty of Boot Space
Let’s talk about the practical aspects of a vehicle, the boot space. Whether you’re using the vehicle as a family car or commuting for work, the amount of boot space a car has could determine whether you buy it or not.
The Audi e-tron offers up to 660 litres of boot space, which tops its rivals from Mercedes and Jaguar. Even without lowering the rear seats, the boot is spacious enough to fit plenty of cargo in the back. Is boot space an important component for you, when you’re looking to buy an EV.
A Fantastic Interior
There are a lot of drivers that would buy an electric car purely for the interior of the vehicle. Some prefer to have conventional style interiors, and others prefer a simplistic, futuristic design such as the interior of a Tesla. We believe that the Audi e-tron is a mix of both. It’s packed full of technology, which is all available at the touch of a button. Every feature in the car is also very accessible and easy enough to locate within the vehicle.
If you’re a driver that looks specifically at the tech specs of the car, then you’ll be pleased to know that the Audi e-tron is definitely up there in the impressive category. The Audi e-tron is capable of reaching 0 – 60 mph in a very respectable 5.7 seconds, with a top speed of 124 mph.
As you can expect from any vehicle designed by Audi, the safety features are first class. Did you know that the Audi e-tron was the very first battery electric car to receive the highest safety rating from IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). The car passed all of the institute’s tests with flying colours!
Similar to other SUVs and electric cars, the Audi e-tron has also been designed with two electric motors on both axles, making it an all-wheel drive car. Not to mention the fact it has the Quattro system. Whether you’re off roading, or simply driving on the motorway, you’re guaranteed to drive a vehicle that performs well on all surfaces.
Additionally, when you buy an Audi e-tron it also comes as standard with adaptive air suspension. The driver will have the option to change various settings in relation to the type of surface they are driving on.
Seating and Comfort
Continuing with the interior of the Audi e-tron, let’s not forget about the luxurious cabin and comfortable seating. The owner of an Audi e-tron will be able to enjoy full leather seating throughout, which can be adjusted electronically, and heated if required. The seats themselves are incredibly supportive, and great for those long road trips. Not to mention, the amount of space available as well. If you buy an Audi e-tron it’s a win-win!
If you’re looking to make the switch to an electric vehicle or simply wish to upgrade your current EV, then the Audi e-tron would be the perfect car to invest in.
