Audi is launching two new electric vehicles at the Audi E-Tron Hub, an interactive exhibition showcasing Audi’s electrification technology that runs from 14 January to 18 February 2021 at the Audi Centre Singapore at 281 Alexandra Road.

The two new models are the Audi E-Tron 50 and the Audi E-Tron Sportback 50. The former is a slightly less powerful version of the E-Tron 55 model that is already on sale here, and is priced at S$310,730 inclusive of COE. The E-Tron 50 variant puts out 308hp, as opposed to the 55’s 402hp, and has a range of 336km when fully charged, down from the 55’s 436km of range.



The E-Tron Sportback 50, meanwhile, is a swoopier, curvier version of the regular E-Tron, designed as an SUV coupe. Pricing for the Sportback model starts at S$321,235 inclusive of COE, and while it has the same 308hp drivetrain as the E-Tron 50, it offers a slightly longer range of 347km when fully charged up.

Aside from the two new models on display, the Audi E-Tron Hub will also have a number of features designed to showcase Audi’s latest technologies that relate to its electrification efforts. These include the Audi AR (augmented reality) experience, where visitors can discover the inner workings of the E-Tron cars by viewing them through AR glasses.

There’s also the Audi VR (virtual reality) experience, which allows visitors to experience to explore the technical side of the E-Tron, including how to practice maintenance for an electric car, and how to assemble the car’s battery pack.

Audi will also be showcasing its new partnership with SP Group that will provide E-Tron owners with a seamless charging experience, and visitors can find out more about the charging privileges that they will get to enjoy as an Audi E-Tron owner.

“2021 is a big year for electric mobility in Singapore. The country is moving fast with big commitments to expand the charging infrastructure and generous incentives for consumers to go electric. This fits perfectly with our global strategy to shape the future of premium mobility,” notes Markus Schuster, managing director of Audi Singapore. 

He adds, “We want to share the knowledge associated with the electric vehicle technology, which is why we have the Audi e-tron Hub, our latest digital-physical concept where visitors can pick-up the know-how and, of course, experience the cars for themselves.”



The Audi E-Tron Hub opening hours are as below:
Monday to Saturday – 9am to 8pm
Sunday and public holidays – 10am to 7pm
Chinese New Year Eve (11 February) – 9am to 3pm
Chinese New Year (12 – 14 February) – Closed
