E-tron: First Electric SUV In Pakistan By Audi
It’s classy, ingenious and unique, it’s called E-tron. After the news being in the air for quite some time, Audi has finally launched its Electric E-tron Quattro in Pakistan a couple of days ago. This production has marvelled car enthusiasts and it is an empowering step towards a pollution-free Pakistan.
This is Audi’s big-time entry in the thrilling world of electric cars which promises to save us and our beautiful planet from the dark clouds of smoke. E-tron is expected to be a tough competition for Mercedes EQC, Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X.
Audi E-tron is not just another car. It’s two benefits in one, a modern SUV and an innovative electric vehicle. Audi claims; “We have explicitly tested the Audi E-tron for you on electromobility-relevant aspects. In doing so, we not only guarantee the usual quality of one of our vehicles, but above all ensure your safety.”
It has the power of a maximum of 300 kW. Optimum traction gives you the opportunity to experience the full Quattro drive. According to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure, its range is 417 km. It can travel like flash. The maximum speed is 200 km/h. This beast can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just a snap, 5.7 seconds.
E-tron ensures safety. Thus, it features optional virtual exterior mirrors which have a flat support reducing the vehicle width, air resistance and wind noise level. A small camera projects the image to high-contrast OLED displays inside. Despite the headlamp reflections, this results in a clear vision of rear-end vehicles at any time, be it bright or dark.
The optional Matrix LED headlamps have undermined the need of constant operation of high beam in the dark. A control unit switches individual diodes on and off and thus takes intelligent consideration for oncoming traffic.
The brilliantly designed interior offers space and high standards of quality. It provides more than enough room for the driver and the four passengers to have a ride they can thoroughly enjoy. You can adjust the LED lights as you want. It is also integrated with dual mounted touch screens, Bluetooth and even a Wi-Fi hotspot.
After its crash testing, Audi E-tron earned a 5-star rating, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It was labelled as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IHSA).
It is expected to be launched at PKR 15,500,000. It is A LOT but worth it. Now it is for us to see as to how well this new production can sustain in our country.
