Audi e-tron 2021 electric SUV gets $9,000 price cut and 18 more miles of range

3 min read

Audi announced the details of its 2021 e-tron electric SUV lineup, and they’re introducing significant price cuts of up to $9,000.

The e-tron electric SUV has already had a strong start in some European markets, but it has had a slow start in the US — a market that generally loves SUVs.

The German automaker is addressing that with the new 2021 e-tron lineup in the US.

In order to expand the market, Audi is lowering the price by almost $9,000.

The Audi e-tron now starts at $65,900 before EV incentives.

After the first $7,500 federal tax credit, the electric SUV is going to start at just $58,400.

On top of the new low base price, the e-tron is getting a range increase of 18 miles based on the EPA rating, which is now 222 miles on a single charge.

As previously reported, the German automaker is also adding the Audi e-tron Sportsback to the lineup.

The sportier version of the SUV is about $3,000 more expensive than the regular e-tron.

Here are all the the specs for both 2021 models, and you can check with your local dealers for inventory and orders:
