SPIED: 2023 Audi e-tron Facelift Seen Testing Once Again

We must be getting close to the eventual reveal of the facelifted Audi e-tron, as more and more spy photos keep popping up. (We don’t own the photos but they can be seen here)

 

For 2023, Audi will give the e-tron a new facelift, to keep it looking and feeling a bit fresh, as newer competitors flood the market. To be honest, the e-tron was sort of dated when it was new, as it lacked the range of its main competitor, the Tesla Model X, and certainly lacked the power. However, that could change with the facelifted car.

Recent reports claim the 2023 Audi e-tron will get a newer battery pack, with up to 373 miles (600 km) of range, which would put it well within striking distance of Tesla’s best and better than its worst. It would also be more range than even BMW’s new iX, which will likely be the e-tron’s main competitor.

 

From the outside, though, the newly-facelifted Audi e-tron doesn’t seem to be too different from the current car. Its headlights look similar, as do its taillights. However, the grille looks a bit different, a bit sportier, so that’s a good thing.

 

We’re also hoping for some changes to the cabin. While the e-tron’s interior is lovely, it’s also a bit too familiar. I know Audi wants to attract existing ICE customers but the e-tron is a very high-tech, high-end luxury SUV and its passengers should be treated as such. None of the spy photos show off the interior but it’s likely to get a few tweaks here and there.

 

Eventually, the Audi e-tron will be replaced by the Audi Q8 e-tron, which will be built on an entirely bespoke EV architecture. Until then, though, the e-tron needs a facelift to stay competitive and it seems like it will get one.
