Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, Audi introduces a more affordable base model that features the Premium designation. Available on both the regular and Sportback e-tron, it costs about $9000 less than the mid-level Premium Plus. It can also be equipped with the Convenience Plus package, which includes driver assists such as adaptive cruise control. Audi also improves the e-tron's available battery capacity and efficiency. The regular e-tron now has an estimated driving range of 222 miles—18 more than its predecessor.

Pros
Whisper-quiet operation,
luxurious state-of-the-art cabin,
tows up to 4000 pounds.

Cons
Other luxury EVs have more range,
not very engaging behind the wheel,
none of the flashiness exhibited by rivals

interior design,
efficiency modes

Cons
Doesn’t look like an electric car,
electric mirrors an acquired taste
