Audi previews its electric future with e-tron SUV prototype
Audi has shown off the prototype for an all-electric SUV at the Geneva Motor Show, with 250 vehicles in testing before a production car is made.
The fully-electric SUV is undergoing a rigorous amount of testing ahead of a planned production model, with 250 prototypes set to rack up a hefty 3,100,000 miles (5,000,000 km) before a finished version is released. This testing is taking place in temperatures ranging from -20 to +50 degrees Celsius.
The other three electric models due to be released are a four-door Gran Turismo, a production version of the e-tron Sportback that was shown at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2017 and a compact model, most likely a hatchback. In all, there will be more than 20 electric and plug-in hybrids in Audi’s range by 2025, according to Rupert Stadler, Audi’s CEO.
