The electric SUVs Audi E-Tron 2022 and Audi E-Tron Sportback 2022 are entering the new model year with minor changes, in particular with a new model of the E-Tron Chronos Edition and a reorganization of the functions in the equipment variants.
The Chronos Edition replaces the Prestige as the top equipment variant for the standard E-Tron, which is above the equipment variants Premium and Premium Plus. It includes Chronos gray paint, S-Line exterior trim, the Black Optic trim package, Digital Matrix LED headlights, black 21-inch wheels with orange brake calipers, a black headliner, volcanic gray ash wood inlays and rear side airbags.
One step below the Chronos Edition, the E-Tron Premium Plus has a new “Sport” 21-inch wheel design and orange-colored brake calipers for 2022.
The Sportback, which is mechanically identical to the standard E-Tron, but has a lower, slimmer roof line, retains its previous equipment variant Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. The Chronos Edition is available exclusively for the standard E-Tron roof.
Audi has added a Convenience Plus option package for the E-Tron Sportback Premium, which contains driver aids and the Black Optic exterior trim package. Like the standard E-Tron, the E-Tron Sportback Premium Plus gets a new 21-inch wheel design, while the Prestige gets a new design with 22-inch wheels. Both also get orange calipers.

E-Tron prices start at $ 66,995 for the premium trim level. Premium Plus and Chronos Edition are priced at $ 75,895 and $ 84,495, respectively (all prices include the destination). Sportback prices start at $ 70,195 for the Premium, $ 79,095 for the Premium Plus, and $ 83,395 for the Prestige. Audi expects both E-Tron variants to qualify for the full electric vehicle tax credit of $ 7,500 for the 2022 model year.
Audi has started to establish itself as an EV player. This is the fourth model year for the E-Tron range – with the SUV launched for 2019 and the Sportback for 2020.
Audi will soon also be adding the smaller crossover Q4 E-Tron and the sedan E-Tron GT with a sportier RS version.

In addition, the Q6 E-Tron will fit just under the E-Tron in size and will be based on the next generation Premium Platform Electric (PPE), which also supports luxury electric vehicles from other Volkswagen Group brands.
Audi has also been annoyed that a few electric sedans could be added soon – in the form of the A6 concept based on PSA and a smaller sedan based on the VW Group’s MEB platform, which is also used for the Q4 E-Tron and the Volkswagen ID is used. 4 crossover network.
