Hi All,
Not many posts on the E-tron 50 (BE) on the forum, so thought I would look to start one ... and get some help along the way..

I am looking at a new Etron 50 BE on a new option available from my employer under salary sacrifice, which allows me to take out an EV only car but with full insurance and servicing, just like a normal company car option, but I pay for the car (pre tax / salary sacrifice) and not via the normal P11D tax method.. so this offers me a wider options of cars to chose from over and above the standard car list available to all from my company.

Any one else did this? .... Can you offer any advice ?

And does any one have a 50 E-tron BE that they comment on ?

Range etc..?

I also have a large do , Alaskan malamute and that's why I am looking to do something like this and drop the A4/A6 as I can only get saloon options on the crappy car scheme unless I take the EV salary sacrifice which is called "Arval ignition"... (The lease co..)

thanks all for any info.. feedback,

J.

Given the size, question is how good are they at jumping up, as if not so then needs to be a low boot line with a fairly flat edge, also height is key by looks of those dogs, low loader like an a6 maybe little short on height, so maybe a q5 or something is better but that, iirc, has a higher boot line, lifting the dog would be fun lol.

How about a trailer? Lol

Loki (my malamute) would jump in on command to the car as he loves getting in the car and heading out as he knows its a "big" walk coming up for him.
Q5 isn't in my options unfortunately for company car or that would have been my choice tbh..
I really do think that my employer is wanting to point us company car drivers towards the full EV route via the new package on offer which to be fair to them does open me up to lots of options and brands.
I looked also at the Q4 Etron but not a fan unfortunately.
I dont want to say iX3 from BM, as although its an EV its just an old stlye X3 with an EV drivetrain.. (old Dash layout etc..) but it does have a good boot layout / size for my needs with the dog.

I have a 24hr test drive coming up in a few weeks on the Etron and will scope it out with the dog then.

Trailer could be an option.... good call there... thanks ! (Any dog trailer recommendations welcome - :smile new: )
