Has anyone been successful in getting any sort of incentive(s)?
I leased mine but got the Audi loyalty incentive along with the federal tax credit applied

I thought about Leasing, but the lease compared to 0 down purchase lead to almost the same monthly payments, ($100 difference), knowing this I took the gamble, if in 3 years I would rather have a different car I will lose, but if I still like the car in 4 years I will win. The way the EV market is expanding, you are more likely to have made the best financial decision. Everyone's situation is slightly different.

My guess though is that, as expensive as it is, the eTron is a zero or negative margin vehicle for Audi at the moment and they will adjust supply to meet the demand while they’re working on the bespoke platforms that will presumably lower their unit costs. Those, starting with the Q4, will likely be sold through the normal channel, while the eTron will remain a direct-order model, at least until the next gen models are ready.

I typically use my own info and instincts on the car market, albeit a very small sample size. Here in Seattle, our dealer has sold 18 E-Tron's so far (as of 3 days ago), and had 3 cancel, one of those cancelled models is on the showroom floor with additional markup. the other two were sold within a week of arriving (First Edition models). The one on the showroom floor is the Prestige Antigua blue color, which is very polarizing, people like it or hate it. Actually the guy who cancelled it, cancelled it because he did not like the color when he saw it in person, and reordered a Galaxy Blue model.

On cars.com there are some e-trons with a 4K discount. Not sure if that's real or not.

Doesn't look like I will be taking delivery today. Here's hoping for next week. No reason given as to why the further delay.

Larry, I closed the deal on mine yesterday and I did get the 1.9% financing and the dealer applied the loyalty discount, although it's been discontinued by Audi. You can get 1.9% for up to 66 months, or 2.9% for 72 months. I'm in the Seattle area.

There are even bigger discounts on autotrader.com.

Default Audi Etron damaged en route!

Regarding discounts on AutoTrader, I think all or virtually all of “discounted” vehicles are just subtracting the $7500 federal tax credit.

I just learned that my new Audi Etron was damaged en route to port, with extensive damage to it including to the frame. In fact, it has been declared a total loss and is going to be “crushed” per the dealer. 😩

That is awful news! I hope that a replacement is urgently in the works for you!

So Frustrating! I am sorry you are on such a roller coaster! You will love it though when it arrives, and worth the wait!
