Audi has announced they’ll significantly lower the e-tron’s price next year, albeit only for the US market. The German EUV, which is selling phenomenally well in Europe but has failed to captivate the US market, will now start at just $58,400 after the FTC – an $8,900 price cut. There’s more good news too: various improvements to battery tech mean the 2021 e-tron manages an extra 18 miles per charge, meaning a total range of 222 miles on the EPA cycle.
Meanwhile the Sportback has also received the same price cut, and now starts at $61,600 after incentives, with an MSRP of $69,100. Expect these changes to significantly boost sales figures next year, given what was effectively a Model X rival is now priced the same as a Model Y.
Would you consider an Audi e-tron or e-tron Sportback over the likes of a Tesla Model X, Mercedes EQC or Jaguar I-Pace? Let us know your thoughts in the replies section below!
