Audi e-tron 2022 electric car owner review (USA)

TJL drives an Audi e-tron 100kW 2022.

This is TJL’s first electric car, he’s owned the Audi e-tron from new and drives 10,000-15,000 miles annually. The current mileage of the car is between 5,000-10,000 miles and he achieves 130 miles from a full charge.


Why did you choose the Audi e-tron?

Styling, brand and features mostly.


Are you seriously considering your first or next EV? Then visit Electric Road’s CAR FINDER to get the right car for you!


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this electric car

  • Styling is not ugly like most EVs
  • it’s very comfortable to drive.


Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this electric car

  • Range is garbage. I lose 40% range in freezing weather between the battery being less efficient, and running a heater that can’t heat fast enough when driving to keep the windshield thawed.
  • the cup holders are a joke
  • no storage
  • they changed the headliner between the EU model and the US model so getting a pet barrier installed only has the option to damage the headliner
  • can’t utilize digital matrix headlights in the US
  • the app is never working which is the only way to preheat your car.


Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?

Other than excessive range drop in cold weather? No


What are the standout technological features of the car?

HUD, auto cruise control, sensors for everything, 360 camera (does not double as security cams), soft close doors, no hands hatch, keyless entry & digital matrix headlights. Also app connected/subscribed preheat and concierge monitoring (does not limit the vehicle, just monitors).
