2022 Audi e-tron
The Audi e-tron has been close to given that 2019 and was one particular of the initially EVs we range-tested (in Sportback kind). Even though it even now sports activities the same dimension battery (95 kilowatt-hours), Audi created some components and software optimizations and increased obtainable battery capability from the 2021 design 12 months onward. As a result, the EPA selection estimate has jumped from 204 miles to 222 miles, though the use estimate improved from 46 kilowatt-hrs for each 100 miles to 43 kWh for the same length.
Our 2022 e-tron exam car or truck was really seriously optioned with the Prestige package deal, but it didn’t have the larger 21-inch wheels, which can have a adverse impact on range. Our motor vehicle had 20-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle Activity all-season tires (255/50R 20) inflated to the suggested manufacturing facility pressures (38 psi front, 41 psi rear). As equipped, the 2022 e-tron tipped our scales at 5,822 lbs.
Following a whole working day of driving at an ordinary recorded temperature of 67 levels, which is pretty gentle weather conditions, the e-tron managed to journey 248 miles, which is a extremely similar performance to the e-tron Sportback we tested two several years ago. This exceeds the 222-mile EPA range estimate by 26 miles or 11.7%. Our calculated use was also comparatively excellent immediately after charging the battery back to complete. The 2022 e-tron needed only 38.4 kWh to go 100 miles, which is a 10.7% advancement above the estimated use.
