Poll: 2019 Audi e-tron lands first blow in EV battle


They’re both electric, they’re both German and they’re both official – finally. It appears the more conventional Audi e-tron quattro is leading the electric charge, having toppled the Mercedes-Benz EQC in our latest poll.

A handy 66 per cent of respondents to the poll favoured the angular Audi, which is already being produced ahead of a European market launch at the end of this year.

With a claimed range over 400km on the WLTP cycle and a top speed of 200km/h, the e-tron quattro has roundly similar specs to its rival from Mercedes-Benz.

The EQC offers a driving range of 450km on the looser NEDC test – WLTP figures are still to come. It’ll be available in the middle of 2019 if you live in Europe, with a local launch likely to come shortly afterwards. A starting price around $120,000 is on the cards, although that could push higher.
