Audi e-tron SUV Prototype
Audi have offered a closer look at their prototype at the Geneva Motor Show, months before production of the Audi e-tron SUV begins.
As we eagerly await a reveal of a production variant, Audi have showcased their latest e-tron prototype at the Geneva Motor Show. The heavily camouflaged model was displayed on the show floor, whilst a fleet of prototypes drove the surrounding streets of Geneva. Soon after the brand released official images providing everyone a closer look.
The prototype vehicles featured a unique camouflage design, with the e-tron branding distorted in black and white. Further electric design influences can be seen, with the alternating black and orange at the bottom of the vehicle impersonating designs of high-voltage warnings. This section of the vehicle highlights the battery and energy centre of the new vehicle.
Rumours have the real-world range at around 275 miles, though we will have to wait for a reveal of the production version to confirm. Whilst there has been no official announcement from Audi of the vehicles range, Audi have stated that it will be suitable for purely electric driving on longer journeys without any compromises. The e-tron can be filled at fast-charging stations with up to 150 Kw capacity in just under 30 minutes.
The Audi e-tron will go into production later this year at a carbon-neutral facility in Brussels and be available to lease soon after. The e-tron will be the first of several all-electric vehicles from the brand, with an plan to offer three models by 2020.
