We went to Abu Dhabi to sample the all-electric SUV from Audi. The e-tron will make an appearance in SA during the 3rd quarter of 2019, but how different is it from the rest of the Audi SUV lineup?
The electric car onslaught is beginning to gain traction globally and by 2020, almost every manufacturer will have a range of electric cars on offer. South Africa is a little behind in terms of uptake of electric SUVs but 2019 should see a few more introductions that should at least get things off the ground.
The e-tron makes sense as a starting point for Audi as its an SUV in the middle of SUV hyp worldwide. It has a 400 km range and about the same amount of space as a Q7, but what's it like to drive and what is it going to be like to live with? Well, we gave it a drive in the desert and on the surrounding roads of Abu Dhabi to find out.
