Audi Teases E-Tron Electric SUV As It Gears Up For September 17 Reveal

The first fully electric Audi, the E-Tron SUV, is almost here, and will be presented to the world on September 17.

Audi has chosen to lift the cover off the vehicle during an internal event, called ‘The Charge’, which kicks off next Monday, at 11:30 pm EST (Tuesday, 5:30 am CEST), in San Francisco, California.

The premiere will be streamed live over the web, and to highlight the announcement, the carmaker has released a new teaser, which shows the Audi E-Tron’s curvaceous shape once more, from beneath a thin satin cover.

Most specs continue to be kept close to Audi’s chest, but the upcoming E-Tron will make use of a 95 kWh battery pack, which will power two electric motors. The battery should last for about 250 miles (~400 km), in the WLTP driving range, aided by the advanced energy recuperation system announced by Audi.

Other important gear that will give the Audi E-Tron a theoretical advantage (it remains to be seen if their practical or gimmicky) over its direct rival, the newly-unveiled Mercedes-Benz EQC, are the camera mirrors, the first of their kind to be offered on a production vehicle.

Meanwhile, production is well underway, as Audi started assembling the E-Tron at their plant in Brussels, Germany, at the beginning of September, and from there, it will be shipped to different markets.

The car firm will bring the first units to the United States early next year, but until then, they will allow those interested in the E-Tron to reserve one with a $1,000 refundable fee.

      It is still interesting to see it without the camouflage. I think the real color will change the look a bit.

      Not really. Can you show me the map of Audi’s charging network?

    I have the feeling that this car will be the best EV on the market. Interior is the best, cameras instead of mirrors is something which I believe will appear for the first time in a mass produced vehicle. Exterior is typical Audi, but somehow for EV car this is not a bad thing at all.

      Lexus has already beat Audi to market with a camera instead of mirrors in a mass produced vehicle.

      But you’re right–this will probably be the best EV on the market…but probably the most expensive, too.
