Audi e-tron on tour: Ten countries in 24 hours – Ten European countries in 24 hours – the Audi e-tron (combined electrical consumption in kWh/100 km*: 26.4 – 22.9 (WLTP); 24.6 – 23.7 (NEDC), combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 0 (0 g/mi)) has impressively demonstrated its long-distance qualities.

On August 20, nine journalists set out on the tour stretching over 1,600 km (994.2 mi) from Lake Bled in Slovenia to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The electric SUV with its long range and short charging stops proved to be a compelling proposition. Combined with its powerful drive and comfortable interior, it turns electric touring into a premium experience.

Lake Bled lies idyllically on the edge of the Pokljukaplateau in northern Slovenia. Here three Audi e-tron 55 quattro models, each with three journalists onboard, set off on a particular challenge: 10 European countries in 24 hours.

The 1,600 kilometer-plus (994.2 mi) tour took them through Austria, Italy, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium to Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

On stages where the topography could have hardly been more different, the Audi e-tron showed just how comfortable, dynamic and suitable for long journeys the first electric car from the brand with the four rings is.

The Audi e-tron is on the cusp of a new era of mobility – and it makes a bold statement.

Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler, Audi Board of Management Member for Technical Development disclosed that Audi e-tron is an excellent long-distance car because it perfectly combines a high degree of ride comfort, performance and efficiency, On the journalists’ tour we’ve also shown that, apart from the range itself, fast-charging capability with 150 kW is crucially important.
