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.
