Battery electric


The Audi e-tron 55 marks the first long range, full battery electric car from Audi, and indeed Volkswagen Group as a whole, and there's lot to get excited about here. Comparisons to Tesla are inevitable, and overall build quality and finish sees the very refined German beat the upstart Americans. While performance and range stats shade the other way, this is still a high performance beast that goes a long way on a single charge and will then rapid charge at a whopping 150kW. Great car.

*This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2019 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
