Electric car adoption is skyrocketing as the world becomes more accustomed to them and the technology starts to improve. Of all the mid-luxury car manufacturers, Audi is arguably the company with the most skin in the electric game. They currently boast a range of fully electric vehicles and many more are scheduled to launch in the coming years, with the company expected to have 20 fully electric cars in its portfolio by 2025. So, if you’re a regular Audi driver and are looking to finally join the electric revolution, you are spoilt for choice.
But before you take out that Audi gap insurance and start salivating over your new electric motor, let’s discuss some of the best options for electric Audis currently on the market.

Audi Q4 E-Tron
The Q4 is a sleek and very drivable car with a dual-motor setup and 295 horsepower. It boasts a range of around 240 miles, which is quite substantial given the size of the car. It’s the most affordable of the E-Tron cars but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in any way. Indeed, this might represent the best bang for your buck in electric vehicles.
Audi RS E-Tron GT
A car that looks like a sports car even if it doesn’t necessarily perform like a sports car. The GT is still, however, very heavy on performance with 590 horsepower and a boost mode that can kick that all the way up to 637. It tops out at 155 mph and goes from 0-60 in just under 3 seconds. It’s the most expensive of the E-Tron cars and looks like it too. You’ll also need to invest in the carbon-ceramic brakes for a little extra stopping prowess.
The original E-Tron was first revealed back in 2015 as a concept car and it was launched to market in 2018 to take on the likes of Tesla. It looks a lot like a typical Audi family car in many ways and includes a raft of creature comforts that should set it in good stead as a contender for years to come. Audi might be scrapping it in favour of the Q8 in 2026 but for now, at just a shade over £60,0000 new, we think it might be the best choice for those wanting to get started on the road to a fully electric Audi future.
Audi A6 Avant E-Tron
It’s just a concept right now and is expected to land around 2024 but it also looks like perhaps the most enticing luxury family car in the Audi electric range thanks to its super-fast DC charging that lets it go from 4 – 85% in under half an hour. With a range of 435 miles, it’s also a car that could take you comfortably from London to Scotland. And who would have thought that was going to ever be possible with a consumer car 20 years ago?
