From the video:

Liz Jeneault back at Audi Cherry Hill with another review for SUVs.com and here we have the first fully electric model from the brand with four rings. It’s the Audi e-tron and it has an EPA-estimated range of 204 miles. 

 

As you can see, this gorgeous midsize luxury SUV doesn’t look radically different from Audi’s other vehicles and that was done on purpose. Do love this bright, lovely color. Love the LED headlights and taillights, the Singleframe grille, and the special e-tron badging. I'm a fan of the pronounced wheel arches. 20-inch wheels come standard. 

 

Sound-proofing materials help keep this interior incredibly quiet, as does the near-silent motor. High-quality leather is used in here and the front seats offer standard ventilation with an optional massage feature. A panoramic sunroof floods this 5-seater with light. There’s a 10.1-inch touchscreen and also the Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus digital instrument display. A head-up display is offered with the range-topping Prestige. A top view camera with virtual 360 comes standard. As for cargo space, there’s 57 cubic feet of it with the rear seats folded down. 

 

Believe or not, this all-electric SUV can get up to 60 miles per hour in just 5.5 seconds. There’s an electric motor on each axle, which make for a combined output of 355 horsepower. But, you’re able to get it up to 60 mph in just over 5 seconds when the Boost Mode is engaged. It unlocks the full power output of the vehicle, which is 402 hp. 

 

The e-tron’s 95 kWh battery pack can charge from 0 to 80 percent in about 30 minutes at a fast-speed public charger. You can also charge this thing at home. When you’re fully charged, you get an EPA-estimated range of 204 miles. 

 

Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system comes standard, as does the air suspension system. Lots of different drive modes to choose from, including off-road. Plus, when properly equipped, this thing can tow up to 4,000 pounds! 

 

Quick recap, I just love that this is an all-electric vehicle, a first for Audi. Also love the luxurious interior. As a city driver, the range offered is just fine for me. Some do say they wish there was a longer range, though. 

 

The Audi e-tron ranges in starting price from $74,800 with the Premium to $81,800 for Prestige which adds a head-up display, an air-quality package, more driver-assist features, and front seat massage functionality. 

 

And I give this 2019 Audi e-tron here an SUVs.com deal score of 92 out of 100.
