Now, the base E-Tron previous year was the Premium Plus trim, so this is essentially a de-contented E-Tron that you're getting for far cheaper than before.

Launched for 2019 and skipping model year 2020, the Audi E-Tron five-seat crossover SUV is still offered in Premium Plus ($75,895) and Prestige ($80,195) trims. It's $66,995, including the $1,095 destination charge.

The beginning MSRP is dropping thanks to a new base version of the E-Tron SUV that will now begin at $65,900, which is down $8,900 from the existing $74,800 price tag.

In addition to the lower price, the E-Tron now boasts more electric driving range. The Sportback adds the S Line package on top of the above, but it doesn't include the Convenience Plus Package with its electronic assists and black exterior details. There's more than just the cheaper price to consider this year, though. It even became the single best-selling light passenger vehicle in Norway responsible for 92% of all Audi sales in that country.

"As technology progresses, the e-tron lineup has seen its most significant improvements with available battery capacity and efficiency". The 2021 base model will also feature a 95 kWh battery pack. Additionally, Audi says that the front electric motor can be entirely disengaged for 2021.

You'll find these stories and more in today's vehicle news, right here at Motor Authority. "Only when the driver demands more power or traction do both motors spring into action".

The SUV will also feature Audi's virtual cockpit instrument console and dual touchscreen infotainment system with support for the latest connectivity options. Now you can charge via both sides of the auto with one flap on the driver side and another on the passenger side. This means US customers will soon be able to grab an e-tron for $65,900 or an e-tron Sportback for $69,100.

The E-Tron also qualifies for the full $7,500 federal EV tax credit, and may qualify for additional state and local incentives, depending on locality. In preparation for the arrival of the super-SUV, Audi has started accepting bookings for the model at all dealerships in India.
