This is very interesting. But where did you get the information that the towbar will be available in Belgium? Is there a link you can provide? Thanks.


I did testdrive the e-tron, at the moment, that's only possible at d'Ieteren Audi Center (Head-Office of the Audi Importer in Belgium). They told me it would be available as from may in Belgium. If I can't get a towbar on the e-tron, it will certainly be a no go for me.
The Golf GTE can be configured with tow bar in Belgium...

OK I have now found the towbar on the GTE configurator in Belgium. And I have also found it on the Audi A3 E-Tron configurator in Germany.

The only question remains, why is this not available in the UK? If this is a retailer-fit option this certainly changes the situation for me.

I would not rely to much on that configurator. From what I understand, You can't order an e-tron with towbar in Belgium for the moment. So the configurator is not 100% reliable

I have checked the VIN Plate on the car and there is an official train weight (car plus towing load) of over 3000KG. So the car is type-approved for towing. Aftermarket towbars should therefore be fine, even in the UK where they are not available on ordering.
