2020 Audi e-tron gets Black Edition and Vorsprung trim levels

The Audi e-tron range has been updated for 2020 and now starts at £59,900

The Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback are now available in Black Edition and Vorsprung trim levels, which sit above the other three specifications offered. Audi had previously offered the Sportback in S line and Launch Edition versions but now both SUVs come with a choice of the same five trim levels.

All models of the e-tron come with plenty of equipment, including large 20-inch alloy wheels, adaptive air suspension, LED lights, remote cabin preconditioning and Audi’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster. Moving up from the entry-level Technik to Sport costs £2,700, which brings sports seats, an upgraded armrest and wireless phone charging.

S line and Black Edition cars get a sportier body kit, plus 21-inch wheels, matrix LED headlights and sports suspension, and the Black Edition adds a black styling pack to live up to its name. The Vorsprung model has 22-inch alloys, customisable headlights, orange brake calipers, cameras instead of door mirrors and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. Prices for these models start at £66,700, £68,250 and £81,900 respectively.

A new processor for the infotainment system has upgraded the car’s navigation system, so it now learns your frequent routes, accounts for traffic conditions and even shows the flow in each lane of traffic. The software can be updated over-the-air every month, giving drivers the most accurate information. Meanwhile, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now wireless.

Customers who buy an e-tron before the end of the year also get a 12-month subscription to Audi’s charging service, which allows you to use a variety of different chargepoints on one account. Accounts will also be credited with the cost of 1,000 miles’ worth of electricity.

When you have to recharge the e-tron, the fast-charging capability (120kW on ‘50’ models and 150kW on ‘55’ models) means recharging to 80% capacity takes half an hour. A 7kW wallbox, also offered for no extra cost this year, recharges the car in 10.5 and 14 hours for ‘50’ and ‘55’ models respectively.

The model numbers denote the car’s power in Audi’s badging hierarchy but the ‘55’ also offers more range than the ‘50’. You can expect 247 miles from the more powerful one, and 195 miles from the smaller battery.
