Audi did show off their production-ready e-tron prototype at the Geneva International Motor Show today, but contrary to what we were hoping for the car is still hidden under a camouflage wrap. Though the prototype is fenced off from the general public, show goers can still get a close look at Audi’s new electric SUV. Maybe even take a few pictures of its one-piece tail-light and front facia.
When it comes to the e-tron’s specs, Audi remained tight lipped though they did hint at a driving range of at least 250 miles per charge. Using a 150-kW fast-charging system, owners can expect an 80 percent charge in around 30 minutes.
Everything else the e-tron is pure speculation at this point. Maybe it’ll take after the e-tron quattro concept that debuted back in 2015, with a 95-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and three motors delivering a combined 430 horsepower. That was enough to rocket the all-wheel-drive concept from 0-100km/h in just 4.6-seconds. It even had an energy boost mode, which temporarily added and extra 66 ponies.
“The e-tron is confirmed for launch in Europe late this year”, reports Motor Authority. U.S. spec models should appear on showroom floors early next year.
