The public debut of the electric crossover Audi e-tron will take place on September 17 at a special event in San Francisco. Earlier the presentation planned for August to the German manufacturer had to be postponed because of the arrest of the executive director Rupert Stadler. Simultaneously with the premiere, the company will begin to accept pre-orders.

Audi e-tron will become one of three electric models, which the manufacturer intends to present until 2020. In the US dealerships, the crossover will appear in the first half of next year. Together with e-tron, Audi will introduce home charging stations and an appropriate “ecosystem”.

A feature of Audi e-tron will be virtual side mirrors. They will be offered as an option in those markets where such a decision will be approved by the authorities. The image from the cameras will be broadcast on OLED displays located between the doors and the front panel. In this case, the information display modes can be switched using the MMI interface.

The Audi e-tron will be powered by two electric motors with a total power of 360 horsepower. In the sports mode of operation of the control electronics, the output of the unit can briefly increase to 408 hp. With a battery of 95 kilowatt-hours per charge, the e-tron is capable of driving up to 400 kilometers (according to the new WLTP measurement cycle).
