Audi e-tron

Audi will reveal the production version of its e-tron electric SUV at the second annual Audi Summit event, which this year is scheduled for 2018 August 30 in Brussels.

Audi will also use its Belgian plant to build a more coupe-like version of the e-tron dubbed the e-tron Sportback starting in 2019.

Audi is waiting until the reveal of the e-tron to confirm the specs but has hinted at a range of at least 250 miles. A 150-kilowatt fast-charging system will provide 80 percent charge in about 30 minutes.

History

The Audi e-tron family is a series of electric and hybrid concept cars shown by Audi from 2009 onwards. In 2012 Audi unveiled a plug-in hybrid version, the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, released to retail customers in Europe in August 2014.

Audi E-tron performance

As this car is still in concept phase, much of its performance specifications are still uncertain. The car will have four electric motors, one per wheel. Together, these motors will produce 3,320 pound-feet (4,500 N⋅m) of torque. Top speed for the e-tron is limited to 222 kilometres per hour (138 mph), and it will be able to travel 150 miles (240 km) on full charge.
