Audi e-tron takes progressive technology and blends it with everyday usability, creating the electric driving experience of tomorrow.
Audi e-tron uses an electric motor and a conventional combustion engine. These are able to work independently or in tandem with each other.
This means e-tron models can run purely on the electric motor (ideal for short journeys and city driving), just the combustion engine, or in hybrid mode with both. This offers the driver the performance and reliability of a combustion engine, with the economy of an electric motor.
