HERNDON – Audi of America returns for the eighth consecutive year as the official automotive partner of the Television Academy for the 70th Emmy Awards. This year’s campaign will highlight the all-new Audi e-tron, the first all-electric vehicle from Audi, which will debut globally on Monday, Sept. 17. A new commercial featuring sneak peeks of the e-tron is live online and will also air during the Emmy Awards telecast on NBC. 

“Audi is thrilled to return as a partner of the Television Academy. Our multi-platform collaboration underscores our long-standing presence within the entertainment industry and ongoing support of television’s top talent,” said Loren Angelo, vice president of Marketing, Audi of America. “We look forward to honoring Hollywood’s brightest stars and introducing the all-new Audi e-tron.”

“Unleashed” commercial featuring Audi e-tron
Audi is elevating its Emmy Awards advertising with the “Unleashed” commercial featuring sneak peeks of the e-tron, live now on Audi channels. “Unleashed” is a 60-second spot that tells the story of how electric mobility is about to change with a vehicle that’s powerful and capable. With the Audi e-tron, the wait is finally over. The spot ends with the tagline “Electric has gone Audi,” a continuation of the campaign language introduced on social channels in August.

On Emmys night, the “Unleashed” series will be accompanied by three 15-second spots called “Unleashed Uncompromised,” “Unleashed quattro,” and “Unleashed Range,” which will highlight key performance features of the e-tron.

Audi and the Emmy Awards
Audi will once again host its annual pre-Emmy Awards celebration on Friday, Sept. 14. This year’s exclusive red carpet event will be held at the new La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood.

The all-new Audi e-tron
On Sept. 17, Audi will unveil the fully electric e-tron, a five-passenger SUV aimed at the heart of the premium market. With progressive design, advanced electric and digital technology, the driving dynamics and build quality that customers expect of a premium vehicle, the e-tron lets consumers go electric without compromise. Also on Sept. 17, full e-tron specifications, including pricing, will be available at, giving customers the details needed to configure their e-tron and reserve their vehicle with a refundable $1,000 reservation fee.
