2019 Red Audi e-tron 55 Quattro – Driving Pleasure In A New Dimension. 2019 Audi e-tron 55 Quattro – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Color: Catalunya Red. Subscribe.
The Audi e-tron will debut on the European market in early 2019. The base price in Germany is 79,900 euros. For customers who have already reserved their car, there is the exclusive offer in certain markets of the “Audi e-tron edition one” special model in a limited edition of 2,600, in the paint finish Antigua blue. It includes special exterior details such as the virtual exterior mirrors, aluminum-look attachments, 21-inch wheels, orange brake calipers and an e-tron badge in the same color on the charging flap. The illuminated door sill trims project a logo with the model designation onto the ground. Other equipment features include sport seats, the Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with 3D sound up front, the Tour assist package and Matrix LED headlights.
2019 Audi e-tron 55 Quattro Highlights At Glance:
Drive system and suspension:
– One electric motor at the front and rear axles; total system output up to 300 kW and 664 Nm (489.7 lb-ft) of torque
– Start-off performance on par with a sports car, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.7 seconds (in boost), top speed 200 km/h (124.3 mph)
– Electric all-wheel drive with lightning-fast control and wheel-selective torque control; highly networked drive and brake control
– Variable and thus particularly efficient recuperation concept with energy recovery when coasting and during braking; three levels selectable by driver
– Range per battery charge of over 400 kilometers (248.5 mi) in the WLTP cycle
– Sporty base character thanks to low and central installation position of the battery
– Audi drive select dynamic handling system with seven profiles; electronic stabilization control with sport and off-road mode plus deactivation function
– Innovative wheel brake system with compact central unit and rapid pressure development through electric powered displacement piston; brake pedal simulator makes pressure development and relief imperceptible to driver
– Progressive steering and adaptive air suspension standard; body ride height adjustable by 76 millimeters (3.0 in)
Battery and charging technology
– 95 kWh of energy, 396 volts nominal voltage, weight approx. 700 kilograms (1,543.2 lb)
– Dimensions: 2.28 x 1.63 x 0.34 meters (7.5 x 5.3 x 1.1 ft), 36 cell modules, each with twelve pouch cells in two layers
– Indirect cooling system of aluminum sections separate from cell space
– Powerful thermal management system with four circuits and heat pump
– Charging on the move: with direct current and up to 150 kW of power or with alternating current and 11 or 22 kW (with optional second integrated charger)
– Service for Audi customers: one card activates roughly 80 percent of all charging points in Europe; from 2019 Plug & Charge for automatic authentication at the charging station
– Charging at home standard with up to 11 kW, optional up to 22 kW; intelligent additional functions such as use of own photovoltaic system in combination with a home energy management system
The Audi e-tron offers driving pleasure in a new dimension. With 265 kW and 561 Nm (413.8 lb-ft) of torque, the two electric motors accelerate the electric SUV from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.6 seconds – with no hesitation and virtually silently. The asynchronous motors can deliver this peak performance for up to 60 seconds. This way, they allow the vehicle to accelerate from a standstill to the electronically limited top speed of 200 km/h (124.3 mph) several times consecutively without output losses.
The start-off performance, for example at a traffic light, is comparable to that of a sports car. The maximum drive torque is available within fractions of a second and provides enormous pulling power. The front electric motor, which is positioned parallel to the axle for the purpose of optimum packaging, achieves a peak output of 125 kW at 247 Nm (182.2 lb-ft) of torque. The rear, coaxially positioned motor reaches an output of 140 kW with a torque of 314 Nm (231.6 lb-ft). Two-stage planetary gearboxes with one gear range transfer the forces to the axles via the differentials.
Asynchronous motors can increase their output for a short period of time. By shifting from drive range D to S and fully depressing the right-hand pedal, the driver can activate boost mode. It is available for eight seconds. Here, the drive produces 300 kW of system output and 664 Nm (489.7 lb-ft) of torque. The Audi e-tron then sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.7 seconds. The forces are distributed as follows between the electric motor at the front axle and the one at the rear axle: 135 kW of boost output with 309 Nm (227.9 lb-ft) of torque at the front, 165 kW with 355 Nm (261.8 lb-ft) at the rear.
The center of gravity of the Audi e-tron is thus on a level similar to that of a sedan. Axle load distribution is perfectly balanced at almost 50:50.
