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.

Yeah its great to see that the model from Geneva has retained so many of the styling cues that we first saw in concept. Im loving what I'm hearing in terms of the rumoured specs, and I hope the production model delivers on its 250 miles range and 30 min charge time. Jaguar has set the bar pretty high with the I Pace.

I guess in a way we're lucky because its rare that Audi goes far out of their way with concepts and prototypes when it comes to exterior design. Seen this transition many times over from them and often we get a lot from the concept. The R8 was a great example of this.
