Beirut, May 2, 2019 – Ets. F.A. Kettaneh, S.A the exclusive distributor of Audi cars in Lebanon, participated in the first electric & hybrid motorshow in the Middle East where it showcased the first fully electric car from Audi: the e-tron.
The e-motorshow took place from 11th till 15th of April at the Forum de Beyrouth with more than 10,000 visitors.
The Audi e-tron exemplifies the driving experience of a new era. It combines the everyday requirements of a car and the comfort of the full-size class with an emission-free drive system – at the same time offering the premium experience that is expected from the brand with the four rings, with additional innovative highlights.
On a single charge the Audi e-tron can cover more than 400 kilometers (248.5 mi).
When braking from 100 km/h (62.1 mph), for example, the Audi e-tron can recuperate electric power with a maximum of 300 Nm (221.3 lb-ft) and 220 kW. That corresponds to more than 70 percent of its operating energy input. No other series production model can achieve such a value.
The large high-voltage battery in the Audi e-tron can store up to 95 kWh of energy and is thus the foundation for the long range. There is generally no need to stop at charging stations during everyday driving.
The electric SUV can be charged with direct current (DC) at up to 150 kW , this means and can also be recharged with alternating current (AC) at up to 11kW; recharging with 22 kW is available as an option as well.
The Audi e-tron will be available for sale in Lebanon by end of 2019.
By 2025 Audi will offer twelve automobiles with all-electric drive in the most important markets worldwide and achieve roughly one-third of its sales with electrified models.
