How much does the 2022 Audi e-tron cost?

The 2022 Audi e-tron price starts at $66,995 for the base model Premium. There’s also a Premium Plus trim level that that costs $75,895. Finally, there’s a high-end trim level called the Chronos Edition for $84,495. There is also a tax credit available for the e-tron of up to $7,500.

Is the Audi e-tron fully electric?

The 2022 Audi e-tron is an electric SUV with 355 hp and 414 lb-ft of torque. It’s comfortable, at least according to Kelley Blue Book, and “because the e-tron’s big battery pack is a structural element in the chassis, the whole vehicle feels robust when encountering a field of potholes. Combine that with the supreme quietness of the electric powertrain and Audi’s extensive noise countermeasures, and you have an SUV that’s relaxing to drive.”

In addition, it’s fairly quick, or at least as far as most people require for their everyday needs. The e-tron takes 5.5 seconds to get to 60 mph with its Boost mode activated. In addition, it has features like an all-road mode, which is perfect for driving your Audi e-tron in poor weather conditions, like snow. The 2022 Audi e-tron comes with a 10.1-inch infotainment screen as well as an 8.8-inch climate control screen.

How is the e-tron’s safety?

It’s no small feat to get all good ratings on the IIHS’ crash tests, but the 2022 Audi e-tron did just that. With available ratings of good, acceptable, marginal, and poor, the 2022 e-tron scored a good in every major and minor category. These include things like small overlap front on both the driver and passenger side and the moderate overlap front test. It also includes the side: original test, roof strength, as well as head restraints and seats. 

In addition, the e-tron has a superior rating for both of its available safety systems, both vehicle-to-vehicle as well as vehicle-to-pedestrian. These measure things like how much a vehicle’s speed is reduced before a crash and whether it was able to avoid a collision. There are two available headlight variations on the 2022 Audi e-tron, and while one of them scored a good rating, the other is just acceptable. While not uncommon, this is the only blight on the e-tron’s otherwise perfect test scores. 

All in all, the 2022 Audi e-tron is a great SUV. It’s one of the only two large SUVs to win the coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award – and the other is the Audi e-tron Sportback. Its electric powertrain brings Audi – and you – into the future with efficiency and style. Plus, its comfort and controls are top-notch. If you’re in the market for a luxury large SUV (especially an electric one), you can’t go wrong with the 2022 Audi e-tron.
