An electric Audi: what models are there?

December 7, 2022

Those not yet ready to drive all-electric can turn to Audi for traditional models with state-of-the-art fuel engines. At the same time, popular variants are also available as hybrids, combining quiet and economical electro-power with familiar power sources. These include TFSIe versions of the A3 Sportback, A6 (both Limousine and Avant), A7 Sportback and A8. However, an electric Audi is increasingly an SUV, but what models are there?

Compact SUVs

A compact SUV is ideal for city use due to its uncluttered size. For example, the Audi Q3 and Q3 Sportback offer the typical benefits of an SUV: higher entry and a bolder look. Also, compact SUVs are relatively light compared to their bigger brothers. That promises more favorable fuel economy.

Medium-sized SUVs

Does a Q3 not provide enough room? Then an Audi Q5 or Q5 Sportback is an excellent option. These midsize SUVs give rear passengers plenty of room and have lots of extra luggage space. For the driver, the high seating position provides additional comfort and visibility. For those venturing off the beaten path, it is nice to rely on the wider ground clearance of the Audi Q5 and Q5 Sportback. Driving an Audi Q5 but not paying top dollar? Then it is definitely worth looking at an Audi Q5 used.

Large SUVs

Previously, an MPV was the solution for those who needed to regularly transport more than five people. Now the SUV has taken over that place. In a large SUV, depending on the seat configuration, you have two or even three rows of seats. The rear row of seats, which consists of two smaller seats, is not really comfortable seating for adults. There is plenty of room for children. Fold away this third row of seats, and a large SUV offers a sea of luggage space. An Audi Q7 or Q8 TFSI e are impressive examples of such large SUVs.

Fully electric

In addition to plug-in hybrids, fully electric Audi’s are also in the range. These SUVs impress with their power, agility and on-board silence. The brand set the tone with the introduction of the Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback. The Q4 e-tron or Q8 e-tron, both also available as a sleekly designed Sportback, also make emission-free driving a real pleasure. Anyone who thought sporty electric driving would be impossible: the Audi e-tron GT proves otherwise.
