Audi e-tron: An electric SUV offering all-wheel drive (2024 update)

The Audi e-tron, one of the original electric SUVs from the brand with the four rings, is set for a mid-life refresh in 2024. This makeover comes as the electric vehicle (EV) landscape continues to rapidly evolve. While the all-new Q8 e-tron is on the horizon for 2025, the current e-tron will receive a significant boost in both range and technology to stay competitive.

More Power, More Distance

Originally launched in 2018, the Audi e-tron will hit the refresh button in 2024, with a focus on squeezing more juice out of its batteries and improving overall performance. Audi plans to optimize the electric motors for better power delivery, and whispers suggest an increase in battery capacity as well. This translates to a substantial leap in range, with estimates exceeding 600 kilometers according to industry publication Autocar. That’s a welcome improvement from the current model’s 446 km WLTP range with a 95 kWh battery.

This refresh is crucial for Audi to maintain its edge. The new electric Q4 e-tron already boasts a maximum range exceeding 500 kilometers on some versions, so the e-tron needs to step up its game to stay relevant. Remember the recent buzz around Tesla unveiling a new Model S with a mind-blowing range? Audi clearly isn’t taking any chances.

A Growing Electric Family

The Audi e-tron revamp isn’t the only development in the brand’s electric SUV lineup. Joining the ranks of the Q4 e-tron, the Audi Q6 e-tron is expected to hit the market in 2023. Produced in China by a joint venture between FAW and Audi, the Q6 e-tron won’t directly replace the e-tron. Instead, it will target a different segment, offering a more compact size comparable to the popular Q5 SUV.

With the Q4 e-tron, the refreshed e-tron, and the upcoming Q6 e-tron, Audi is solidifying its position as a major player in the electric SUV market. These models cater to a wider range of driver needs and preferences, all while delivering the power, efficiency, and innovation that Audi is known for.
