2020 Audi Q5 Hybrid Review – 55 TFSI e doesn’t compromise for electric

Audi's strategy with electrification has been "don't rock a smooth-sailing boat," and it's sticking with that recipe for the 2020 Q5 55 TFSI e.

The 2021 Audi e-tron GT will sound unlike any electric car

The 2021 Audi e-tron GT will sound unlike any electric car

Less than two years ago, I was fortunate to get behind the wheel of a pre-production Audi e-tron GT concept on the streets of California. The car I drove is a one-off and is the only model in existence back then. Coupled with drizzling rains (welcome to sunny California!) and real-time traffic, ‘careful’ would be an understatement.

2021 Audi e-tron Sportback First Drive – A taste of the future

Audi seems determined not to startle the brand-faithful with its EVs. Just as the original e-tron SUV surreptitiously injected electrification into what otherwise felt like any other recent SUV with a four-ring grille, so too the new 2021 Audi e-tron Sportback makes familiarity as important as zero-emissions.
