A new video gives us a closer look at the 2020 Audi e-tron advanced 55 quattro. The new footage comes from Auto Bach GmbH from Germany where this electric SUV was filmed by Audiview / YouTube.
In late 2019, Audi introduced a new version of the Audi e-tron 55 quattro with an electric range up to 436 kilometers (270.9 mi) on a full battery charge (WLTP cycle) – an additional 25 kilometers (15.5 mi) over its previous capability.
Using a new type of wheel brake, the developers have achieved further reductions in residual brake torque. The drive system has also become more efficient. In normal driving, the motor on the rear axle provides propulsion as standard.
In addition, the usable range of the high-voltage battery has increased. The battery in the Audi e-tron 55 quattro has a total capacity of 95 kWh and now gives customers access to a net power figure of 86.5 kWh.
All newly produced models will benefit from the technical upgrade. There is no change to prices for the Audi e-tron 55 quattro, which start at €80,900 (US$89,000).
The dual-motor setup delivers a combined output of 355 horsepower (265 kilowatts) and an instant torque of 414 pound-feet (561 Newton-meters). The electric SUV also has an overboost mode that lasts for eight seconds and bumps output to 402 hp (300 kW) and 490 lb-ft (664 Nm).
The Audi E-Tron needs 6.6 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in normal mode and just 5.7 seconds when the overboost is activated. It will do 124 mph (200 km/h).
