How Much Does a 2021 Audi e-tron Cost?

The 2021 model range for the Audi e-tron has expanded a great deal compared to when it first came out. There are two body styles that both come in three trim levels plus an available option package for the SUV version. The new base Premium ($65,900 SUV, $69,100 Sportback) model comes with 20-inch wheels, comfort pre-conditioning, a heated steering wheel, four-zone climate control, lane-departure warning, heated front seats, a power liftgate, Audi Virtual Cockpit Plus, heated, auto-dimming, power-folding exterior mirrors with memory, and a Homelink universal garage door opener. The standard infotainment system on every 2021 e-tron is a dual-screen setup with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and dual USB ports. For the Sportback, the S line exterior package is also included. For the SUV, you can get Premium w/ Convenience Plus Package ($69,400) which adds the Driver Assistance Package and a black optic exterior kit. Upgrade to Premium Plus ($74,800 SUV, $78,000 Sportback) and you’ll be treated to dual charge ports, the Driver Assistance Package, ambient interior lighting, heated and ventilated 12-way power front seats with power lumbar, heated rear seats, matrix-design LED headlights with animation, 3D Bang & Olufsen premium audio, and wireless device charging. Finally, the e-tron Prestige ($79,100 SUV, $82,300 Sportback) turns up the luxury with a head-up display, massaging front seats, full leather interior upholstery, multi-color LED interior ambient lighting, dual-pane acoustic side glass windows, an air quality system, power door closers, and rear sunshades.

2021 Audi e-tron vs the competition

2021 Tesla Model X: We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that the range and MPGe rating of the e-tron is not even close to that of the Tesla Model X. However, the e-tron is more affordable and can be bought and serviced through a much bigger dealer network than a Tesla. Other perks of the Model X include available three-row seating and those awesome “falcon wing” doors. 2021 Jaguar I-Pace: Jaguar’s first shot at an electric crossover is smaller and more performance-oriented than the e-tron. The Jag is almost more of a performance wagon than an SUV giving it a different demeanor than the Audi while having very similar pricing and range. Mercedes-Benz EQC: The U.S. launch of the electric Mercedes-Benz EQC has been pushed back to (at least) the 2021 calendar year, but it might be worth the wait. It’s a little smaller than the e-tron and is expected to have a slightly lower starting price. Used Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid: It’s not all-electric, but the plug-in hybrid version of the Porsche Cayenne is excellent. Its many strengths include standard all-wheel drive, a gorgeous exterior and interior, a roomy cabin, and true Porsche-like performance. A used example can be had at a similar price point as a new e-tron. Used Tesla Model S: If you want to get behind the wheel of an electric luxury vehicle and don’t have your heart set on an SUV, the used market for the Tesla Model S has become very attractive. You can get a well-appointed, low-mile, used Model S with incredible performance and amazing range at a more affordable price point than you might expect.
