2020 Audi E-Tron 55 Review: Cool Running

Derryn Wong


If anyone’s going to buy an EV, it’s someone with a house or at least a private space to charge the car, in other words a luxury car buyer.

It’s actually been six years since the first EV went on sale here, and it happened to be a German luxury EV as well – the BMW i3. That car was stylish, useful, singularly suited to life in Singapore, but perhaps too far ahead of its time.

The E-Tron is a lot more palatable to modern sensibilities, and unlike the Tesla Model X, is not horrifically expensive. In contrast to the Tesla, it’s not meant to evangelise you to a new way of motoring, but to capably and comfortably show you the benefits, delivered in a familiar Audi experience.

It may not be the first German luxury EV here, but it’s the first one that will give us an idea of how many people in the prime target audience really want an EV.
