If you want to be first in line for Audi's electric vehicles, they're taking deposits for both he quattro and sportback e-tron vehicles. So far electrk says Norway is taking deposits along with Canada. More markets should be added to the list soon.

Already there have been reports suggesting these will be delivered by the end of the year, playing well into the slated 2019 M.Y. start.
I bet it wasn't for the fact VW and even Bentley wasn't part of the company then this wouldn't be happening as soon as it is. Odds are we will be seeing some electric VW SUV and some electric Bentley SUV.

Competition for the EV market is heating up and it's pretty much a race to secure buyers first and delivering their vehicles ahead of everyone else. We saw what happened when the Bolt came out first and now it's a fight for electric SUV buyers. I'll sit back for a while in case there are problems with the first batch.

At this point its not so much a race but more so who can come out with the right EV that checks off most boxes, it just so happens that BMW is one of them leading the crowd with Audi and similar brands as runner ups for now. We don't even know how well Audi can compete.

Yeah I don't think its a race either, most deciding on a new electric will probably traditionally stick with the brands that they've owned in the past. The big factors will be price points and what options come standard on the various trim levels. I have a feeling we wont see much different in the range/efficiency from brand to brand in the first wave of electric SUV's. But I also think its a good idea to wait until after the first generation releases and goes through quality of life changes.

The only time another car maker can take away from another is with the design and features they offer. Right now I find that the Jaguar E-Pace looks a bit too "soft" if you know what I mean but the I-Pace prototypes look amazing, an entirely different take on Jaguar design that would make me leave Audi fast than you can say Audi.

I've only seen the prototype and it's much better than the drab looking E-Pace that doesn't seem to be doing very well. Design is one portion of the equation, another is range and what the actual electric car looks like. Of course Audi will need to get buyers through the doors with the E-tron's looks before they can sell them the model's features.

Deposits are £1,000 in the UK and it's fully refundable. I'd assume a similar deposit structure is the same everywhere else if you back out after the 2019 Audi e-tron Quattro is revealed on August 30.

Its going to be a tough for any automaker to follow up with what Jaguar has delivered in the new I-Pace. There are some reports that the e-Tron should have a little bit better range (311 miles) and be priced slightly higher, with an entry price of at least £60,000.

Just placed my deposit today on the E-Tron Quattro in the USA. Going in blind but with full refundable $1000 not a risk. Yes Sept 17 will be open to the general public. A little interest on my own lead me to my deposit. Audi is letting dealerships accept deposits now. Only fair to their customers.

Not sure how you can say that when we don't know much about what other car makers will be doing.
We haven't seen information on the platforms and what makes them special.
Once the autoshows come around, we'll get a better idea.

Impressive range to be putting out especially since a recent Mercedes EV is confirmed to get over 270 miles, no mention on peak range but 270 is already a good baseline.

I would sure like to know where your numbers came from. I have way too much time on my hands and can't find any of your info.

E tron first look

Hello everyone! I just wanted to stop by and drop a link to my first look at the all new E-Tron! I review cars for a living and wanted people who actually care about this vehicle to be able to get all the information on it! To any or all of you who plan on buying this, first of all congrats! This was truly a great car and rest assured that Audi has big plans to make charging as convenient as possible! Enjoy!

Love just about everything from a design standpoint which is a combination of contemporary design and next generation design. Wanted to go with BMW but they're far from contemporary.
