The suggested retail prices for the Audi e-tron are $74,800 for the Premium Plus, $81,800 for the Prestige and $86,700 for the First Edition. The new vehicle is set to compete against the Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes-Benz EQC in the premium EV market. At the same time, Electrify America, a company funded by Volkswagen as part of its settlement of United States diesel emission cheating litigation, plans to launch next year the next round of installations of public charging stations, Electrify America executives told Reuters.

Audi has announced that its recently unveiled e-tron, the company's first fully electric SUV will be fitted with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV tires in 265/45R21 SUV size. People in India can start booking Audi e-tron from next year.

On a full charge the e-tron's range is rated at more than 400km.

Audi, the German luxury auto brand, this week staged the worldwide roll out of the latest electric sport utility vehicle on the home ground of competitor Tesla Inc.

At the rear, slats in the wide diffuser draw attention to the omission of exhaust pipes, Audi said in a statement, while an e-tron logo on the charging flap and, as an option, on the brake calipers further stand out in the high-voltage signal colour orange.

Google expands Emergency Location Services in Android to the U.S.
RapidSOS integrates with existing software at emergency centers in the U.S. to provide a faster, more accurate location with ELS . Hard enough that it took Google until just now to expand its faster, more accurate Emergency Location Service ( ELS ) to the US.

The Audi E-Tron is the latest electric SUV developed by the popular German carmaker.

Through the partnership, U.S. e-tron customers who receive energy bills from their local utilities can offset their home electricity consumption by supporting renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. The charging station itself will cost $1,000. In California, you can hire an electrician via Amazon. Those will be open to any vehicle, and customers can swipe a credit card to recharge.

Audi, which temporarily held the No 2 spot some years ago in terms of global sales, lost ground to German luxury-car rivals Mercedes and BMW both in terms of deliveries and profit margins. Thanks to its three electric motors, the e-tron accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds.

Audi said the use of such smart factory technology made the increasing complexity and broad spectrum of variants in vehicle production manageable.

Optional virtual exterior mirrors also help aerodynamics, using cameras to relay images to the driver. That feature is still not approved by USA regulators. It offers seating for five, and its length and wheelbase position it in the center of the market for midsize, five-passenger luxury SUVs such as the BMW X5. The system operates when the vehicle is coasting (without the accelerator being pressed) and under braking.
