Electrify your drive in a luxurious SUV

When you need an electric vehicle that can take a small family or crew of up to five, the 2022 Audi e-tron does so with style and comfort. Smooth, aerodynamic design gives the 2022 e-tron an attractive curb appeal. The electric motors provide a quiet, smooth ride that is hard to beat.

The comfortable seats are a stand-out feature that let you and your passengers sit back and enjoy the journey ahead. You also get high-end interior finishes, excellent attention to detail, and luxurious touches regardless of the trim. The 2022 Audi e-tron SUV has seating for up to five passengers and plenty of flexible cargo space to take any luggage needed. The 2022 Audi e-tron is available in three trim levels—Premium, Premium Plus, and Chronos edition.

As an electric vehicle, the 2022 Audi e-tron has a 95-kWh battery. Power goes to all four wheels via two electric motors, using Audi's legendary Quattro® AWD technology. The 2022 Audi e-tron gets an EPA-estimated 222 miles total range or an EPA-estimated 218 miles range on e-tron Sportback models (both when fully charged). Range figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new and assume a full battery charge. Range will vary based on things like battery age, vehicle condition and history, driving and charging habits, accessory use, and driving conditions. Battery capacity may decrease with time and use. See for more info.

You don't have to opt for a higher-end model to get the features you want, either. A 2022 Audi e-tron includes smartphone integration, navigation, leather seats, and a four-zone automatic climate control system as part of a long list of standard features. Combining style, generous standard features, and a luxurious interior cabin, the 2022 Audi e-tron makes getting into an electric SUV easy. While we currently do not have many 2022 Audi e-trons on our lots, we look forward to selling more in the future. If you love the 2022 model, you should also consider prior/other model years of the Audi e-tron with similar features.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Audi e-tron

1. A comfortable and luxurious interior

A luxurious brand like Audi has some expectations for a refined experience, and the 2022 Audi e-tron won't disappoint. Sophisticated materials like soft leather seats and natural wood trim are combined with fantastic attention to detail. One of the 2022 Audi e-tron's many interior highlights is the excellent use of luxury materials, too. Leather seats are heated (standard) and rival a living room lounger for comfort.

2. Silky smooth driving experience

An electric vehicle's most significant advantage is its quiet ride and quick acceleration. The 2022 Audi e-tron doesn't disappoint, delivering a ride that stands out among electric SUVs. Power gets to the wheels directly via a pair of electric motors, eliminating the typical sensations of a shifting transmission. The Audi e-tron is heavy, but the weight is well-managed by the suspension, which helps smooth over roughness.

3. The technology for daily life

Among the standard tech in a 2022 Audi e-tron are adaptive cruise control, smartphone integration, forward collision automatic braking, and USB ports for both rows of seats. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® connectivity can be found on the Premium Plus trim alongside wireless charging, traffic sign recognition, and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen® sound system.

4. It can tow

You might be considering an SUV because of its ability to haul small travel trailers or recreational toys—something not always associated with EVs. However, the Audi e-tron is a capable tower, thanks to the torquey electric motors and available horsepower. A 2022 Audi e-tron can tow up to an estimated 4,000 pounds when properly equipped.

 Towing will reduce the battery range because of increased power demand, similar to how towing with a gasoline engine reduces mpg.

5. Space for whatever life demands

Cleverly designed around the battery pack, the interior of the 2022 Audi e-tron has an impressive amount of space. You can fold the second-row seats to maximize the cargo volume or use 60/40 split-folding to store long items without losing a whole row of seats. At 28.5 cu-ft, there's plenty of storage even with the second-row seats up.

Interior details

Inside the 2022 Audi e-tron is an impressive interior with soft leather seating, a four-zone climate system, and lots of little details to make every journey a delight. Heated second-row seats are standard on Premium Plus models, and the Chronos trim adds massaging front seats. 

Take all your luggage along with 28.5 cu-ft of cargo volume behind the second-row seats, or fold them for 56.4 cu-ft of storage. A standard panoramic sunroof adds a bright and airy feel to the interior.

Child seat details

There are two upper and lower LATCH anchor sets in the second row of a 2022 Audi e-tron, and a single upper tether anchor. The seat height and door openings are at the ideal level for putting child seats into and getting them out of the 2022 e-tron, and getting connected to lower anchors is a breeze. While there is room for two forward or rear-facing child seats, you won't be able to fit three side-by-side. You can use the center position for a child seat, but the seatbelt must be appropriately secured because there are no lower anchors. Overall, the 2022 Audi e-tron makes the daily use of child seats quick and easy.


Despite being an SUV, the 2022 Audi e-tron packs a performance punch. Two electric motors combine to make 355 hp—402 hp in boost mode. With boost mode enabled, a 2022 Audi e-tron blasts from zero to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds (when new). If range isn't a concern, the 2022 Audi e-tron S gets an impressive 429 hp (496 hp in boost mode). That added power means the 2022 Audi e-tron S goes from zero to 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds (in Boost Mode when new). When fully charged, the 2022 Audi e-tron has an EPA-estimated range of 222 miles, while a 2022 Audi e-tron S has an EPA-estimated range of 208 miles (20-inch wheels).
