It’s hard not to be impressed by the Audi E-Tron. The Tesla Model X, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes-Benz EQC challenger uses two electric motors that kick out 355 hp (360 PS / 265 kW) and 402 hp (408 PS / 300 kW) with the Boost Mode engaged.
Thus, it hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 5.5 seconds, 0.8 seconds quicker than the Porsche Macan S, has a range of 204 miles (328 km) as per EPA’s estimates with the 95 kWh battery pack fully charged, and a 4,000 lbs (1,814 kg) towing capability.
Now, we’ve already seen what it’s all about in the hands of those who’ve driven it. Only the video that you’re about to watch below shows something different: its real-life performance.
Thus, on a no-speed limit highway somewhere in Germany, where enthusiasts can drive as fast as they want to without breaking the law, the E-Tron was taken to 124 mph (200 km/h). The entire run was filmed and you can see how quick it accelerates, as well as how much road noise gets into the cockpit.
In the off-chance you’re not satisfied with what Audi’s electric SUV can do, you can simply wait for them to launch the high-performance version. Expected to be called the E-Tron S or E-Tron RS, it’s currently in development and will get a sportier body kit, bigger brakes and re-tuned suspension. More importantly, the output could reportedly be increased to to 496 hp (503 PS / 370 kW) in Boost Mode, and 67 hp (68 PS / 50 kW) less on Normal compared to the regular version.
