Default Car show e-trons! Where to see one.

Beaverton Audi says an e-tron (SUV) will be at the Portland Auto Show January 24-27. Might be worth the price of admission of the Wednesday preview night.

If you go, would you please write down the VIN number - then we can look at a manual. Would be very interesting.

Got word from my dealer, for those going to the Philly Autoshow, that the e-Tron will NOT be there. Just a heads up.

Possible, but the dealers rarely know what the manufacturer plans to bring to the Autoshow until they actually show up. E-tron has been at all the major auto shows in the USA since the unveil, so I would check the auto show docket before having full confidence in what the dealer says.

Excellent photos, thanks!

I assume this is the first time you've seen it in person. What was your impression and did anything stand out to you?

Very very nice. Wish I had put my name down for the First Edition. Looked better than the Q8, and far better than the Q7. Wish I could get inside... But Beaverton Audi will apparently have one to drive in February.

(But, honestly, I think I am going to get an RS5 Sportback, to hold me over until the e-tron Black Optic appears.)

Thanks for the great pictures. Unfortunately one cannot get an owner's manual for the e-tron from the Audi website with this VIN number. Maybe the ZZZ in the VIN indicates that these cars are not for resale.
There is another site that seems to have electronic owner manuals for lots of cars (including the 2019 Q8) https://ownersmanuals2.com/make/audi

Sorry, missed this, porttac. Who knows when they'll start building the non-first edition e-trons. But, as I say, I am going to hold off until the BOP is available in the US. I am guessing a couple of years.
