2019 Audi e-tron
Front Crash Prevention: Superior (6 points)
The first fully electric model from Audi, the e-tron is a premium 5-seat midsize SUV with an EPA-estimated range of more than 200 miles. The e-tron employs a new-generation quattro electric all-wheel-drive system that features two potent electric motors — one powering each axle — that can adjust the amount of torque delivered to each axle for ideal balance according to driving conditions. The e-tron is only the second Audi to earn the IIHS top safety rating, and has the distinction of being the first fully-electric vehicle to achieve the Top Safety Pick + title. In addition to the e-tron’s Good score in the required crash tests, the standard automatic emergency braking operates at speeds up to 52 mph for detected pedestrians and bicyclists. The system can also bring the vehicle to a full stop when traveling at speeds under 25 mph.
