Audi has finally shown off the 2019 E-Tron absent all the cladding and camouflage. There have been some notable changes from the concept including a revised grille and lighting. Inside the cabin its's nearly identical to what's found in the Q8, A8 and A7. With two electric motors its power output has been estimated to be around 355hp and 414lb-ft of torque in normal mode. There is however an overboost function which can operate for up to 8 seconds which brings those numbers up to 402 and 490. Its not cheap however to buy into and the entry level Premium Plus starts at $75,795. The top rung First Edition model will start at $87,695. Audi is currently taking pre orders with a $1,000 deposit and a configurator is available online.

Its a great looking SUV, with some impressive powertrain numbers. I do feel like its been priced a bit aggressively, but its obviously not an entry level model. Also have we got a confirmed range yet? Numbers seem to be all over the place?

Not a fan of the center vent placement which IMO should have been moved elsewhere so we can have an infotainment screen closer to eye line level.

Somewhere between 200-250 is what I would expect for real world numbers. And the pricing is fairly similar to what we're seeing with both the I Pace and Model X.

So far it seems like that number isn't official and might be a slight scale back of what they should be producing. The Chevy Bolt easily meets that range, close to 250 last I checked.
Audi as a premium brand launching a new model would do well closer to 300.

While the E-Tron may have less initial range than key rivals, they have mentioned several times that a vast amount of range can be recuperated through their unique regen system. They've said that range can be boosted by up to 30% if owners make proper use of these systems.

I think its quite possible for that to increase as habits improve and owners do some serious hypermiling. Once you know your routes very well, finding more efficiencies can't be that hard.
