Audi’s All-Electric E-Tron SUV Will Allegedly Be Unveiled This Fall

Audi may have started taking reservations for the all-new E-Tron SUV, but, according to reports, it won’t be revealed until this fall, probably at the Paris Auto Show in October.

Ingolstadt’s challenger to the likes of the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace is an important step in the Volkswagen Group’s push for electrification, and it also represents Audi’s answer to falling diesel sales.

Previewed by the concept car shown originally in 2015, the Audi E-Tron SUV is believed to get a more toned down styling for production, similar to that of the upcoming Q6, and to be underpinned by a modified version of the MLB architecture that’s also used by the Q5 and Q7.

No details about its zero-emission powertrain have been released so far, but the show car had three electric motors that worked together to produce 429hp and more than 800Nm (590lb-ft) of torque, which allowed it to sprint from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.6sec, and up to a top speed electronically limited at 210km/h (131mph). The electric motors will get their juice from a large capacity battery, which should give it a total range of 500km (311 miles) on a single charge.

Inside, the Audi E-Tron SUV is believed to offer seating for up to 5 and sport an interior design inspired from the latest A8, with the Virtual Cockpit taking center stage at the front. Finally, just like the flagship saloon, the zero-emission SUV is expected to feature Level 3 autonomous driving capability.

    The competition is heating up. I’ll be looking forward to the comparison tests when this and the I Pace are in production.

    So is this going to be Macan sized or Cayenne sized?

    I have read that the launch event will be during the Audi summit in summer. This was where they launched the new A8 last summer.
