Audi e-tron passed the desert test.

Autogefühl recently had the opportunity to test drive the Audi e-tron prototype (with a production version of the powertrain) at Namibia’s salt flats and savanna.

Tests were focused on driving dynamics and the all-wheel-drive capabilities in different driving modes. As it turns out, the all-new e-tron is the most agile car of its size, according to Autogefühl.

The Audi e-tron seems very stable, without much wheel spin. Has quick response from its motors, an impressive driving experience and is very stiff and quiet.
