AUDI is making its all-electric e-tron SUV slightly more affordable with the introduction of a 50 quattro model priced from £59,500.

That's a saving of almost £12,00 over the cheapest - and more powerful - e-tron 55 which was introduced last year.

The new version has a combined power output of 313ps as opposed to the 408ps of the e-tron 55 and has a range of up to 190 miles with a 30 minute recharge time up to 80 per cent battery capacity.

It will be available in Technik, Sport and S line specifications with Launch Edition models topping the line up.

Technik and Sport grade versions sit on 20-inch alloys while the higher trim models have 21-inch rims.

Launch Edition versions of the e-tron 50 are priced from £72,700 and include Audi's virtual mirror system which used a camera to relay images inside the vehicle.

Performance is 0 to 60 acceleration in 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 118mph and its battery is rated at 71kWh

A full recharge from a 7kW home-based charging system takes 10.5 hours.

Andrew Doyle, director of Audi in the UK, said:"Our research has shown that on a daily basis many prospective buyers will cover significantly less than the 190-mile maximum achievable in the e-tron 50 on a full charge, so for them this more accessible yet no less accomplished variant makes perfect sense."
