Audi has been testing the waters with various electric vehicles over the years, and they’ve surely gathered considerable experience in the process. Now, they are reportedly transferring their knowledge into a VW e-Up!-based all-electric vehicle, which is set to arrive in 2015.
The information comes courtesy of Automobil-produktion, which says their own source is German car magazine Auto Bild. They explain that the car will feature different styling, a much-improved interior, reflecting its premium status, and a high-spec infotainment system.
Also, its battery pack of unspecified capacity will reportedly be capable of taking it 200 km (125 miles) on a single charge, more than the e-Up!, which can only manage 150 km (93 miles) – it uses an 18.7 kWh pack.
Performance will also be better than that of the e-Up!, as the Audi is reportedly getting 116 PS (114 hp) and 270 Nm of torque, or 199 lb-ft. The information goes even further and tells us the car will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.3 seconds and have a top speed of 150 km/h – their sources seem to be very detailed…
