The quiet North Frisian island is a great place to experience the excitement of e-mobility.

The next stage of electric mobility

From the 80's Audi Quattro to Audi e-tron

Every car and rally enthusiast knows the Audi Quattro from the Eighties: the legendary all-wheel-drive sport coupé that conquered the market. The same driving experience is now available in an e-vehicle: with all-wheel electric power delivering up to 300 kW (408 hp) and 664 Nm of torque, the e-tron goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds delivering impressive performance. But don't worry: the peace and quiet of Sylt will remain undisturbed, as there is barely a hum, even when you put your foot down.

Lifestyle times two

Sylt like you have never experienced it before

Sylt natives never let low temperatures spoil their beach fun. "Warm clothes, cold drinks" is the order of the day, and the outdoor bars are always open, even when the temperature drops below 20°C. For stunning views over the Wadden Sea, try the Soundowner Terrace at Walter's Hof in Kampen, which also offers excellent accommodation. Over a glass of wine, with a view of the North Sea and the sun sinking below the horizon, you can ponder whether the deepest impression was left by the soft shapes of t9he Sylt landscape and the Nordic serenity of its residents, or by the streamlined silhouette and even temperament of the e-tron. Perhaps it's a combination of the two.
