Audi e-tron (2018-present): dimensions and boot space

All the dimensions and boot size figures you need to know for the Audi e-tron and e-tron S electric cars

The Audi e-tron and its quicker sibling, the Audi e-tron S, are practical, luxurious and comfortable electric SUVs. There are varying power levels depending on the model you choose, with the S being the fastest, but here we’re looking at the dimensions and boot space of these cars.

There’s also a model called the e-tron Sportback, which we’ve covered in a separate e-tron Sportback dimensions page. You can read more about that version, which has a different body shape, on that page.

The Audi e-tron comes in 50 quattro, 55 quattro and S forms, with an electric range of roughly 190, 250 and 220 miles respectively. As you go up through the range, the motors get more powerful, and the S model is very quick - it can go from 0-62mph in less than five seconds.

Rivals for the e-tron include the Jaguar I-Pace, Mercedes EQC and Tesla Model X. The e-tron isn’t available with seven seats like the Tesla, but it’s larger and more practical than the Jaguar and Mercedes.

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the dimensions of the Audi e-tron and Audi e-tron S, including boot space, towing capacity and weight figures for both versions.

Audi e-tron dimensions

Just 1mm separates the Audi e-tron and e-tron S in terms of length, so they might as well be identical in that dimension. However, the S version is slightly wider at 1,976mm - the base version is 1,935mm wide. This is with the mirrors folded. Both models are identically tall at 1.6 metres, which is actually fairly low for an SUV, though you still sit in a high-up driving position.

There’s loads of space inside both versions. Adults will be able to sit comfortably in the back seats of the e-tron as there’s lots of legroom and headroom, so children will have no trouble at all getting settled back there. Some models come with tinted windows that reduce the level of light coming into the cabin a bit but on the whole, it feels very spacious inside the e-tron.

Audi e-tron boot space

The Audi e-tron has 660 litres of boot space in all forms, which means it has more room for luggage than the Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes EQC. Combine that with the roomy passenger cabin and the e-tron is a really practical electric SUV.

If you fold down the seats there’s a total of 1,725 litres of room in the e-tron. Again, this is true in both the base car and the e-tron S, and it means both versions are roomier than an I-Pace in both configurations. The Tesla Model X is more spacious, though, as with all the seats folded away, you can open up more than 2,000 litres of luggage space in the Tesla. It’s a more expensive model, though, so for the money the Audi is really roomy.

Audi e-tron towing capacity

Some electric cars aren’t even rated for towing, but the e-tron is actually able to tow up to 1,800kg in 50 quattro and 55 quattro form. However, Audi doesn’t list a towing capacity for the e-tron S, so if you plan to pull a trailer then the lower-spec versions will be a better option.

Towing with an electric car isn’t ideal, though, as a petrol or diesel car with the same power as the e-tron would be able to pull a heavier trailer. Pulling a heavy load can also reduce the range of an electric SUV by so much that it may not be practical for all but short trips.

Audi e-tron weight

Weight is important with electric cars because heavier models are less efficient, offering a lower amount of range with all else being equal. Heavier cars are also slower and more expensive to maintain, as parts such as brakes and tyres wear out faster.

The kerb weight figure of a car shows us how heavy it is with fluids included, plus (in some cases) a 75kg driver. Most electric cars are very heavy, but the e-tron is hefty even by those standards. The entry-level version weighs 2,445kg, which is twice as much as an ordinary small family car, and the heaviest model is the e-tron S at 2,730kg.
