The first electric crossover Audi estimated cheaper than the hybrid Q7March 16, 2018
Electric crossover Audi e-tron will cost in Germany at least 80 thousand euros – two thousand cheaper than the diesel-electric hybrid Q7 e-tron. A number of countries have already begun to take pre-orders for a novelty and, for example, in Norway their number has exceeded 3700.
According to preliminary information, the public debut of Audi e-tron will be held in Brussels this summer. Production of the crossover will begin in the second half of 2018. Following him, in 2019, there will be a coupe-like Audi e-tron Sportback.
The prototype of the electric SUV was presented by Audi at the Geneva Motor Show. The pre-production model of the machine was covered with camouflage with e-tron logos. Technical characteristics of the all-terrain vehicle were not named, but noted that it will receive the all-wheel drive system and will support fast charging.
Before launch, Audi will test the model in real conditions. In the test, 250 prototypes will be used, and it will take place in the highlands, the Nurburgring, and under the influence of extremely low and high temperatures.
The harbinger of the first electric crossover Audi debuted in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in the form of the concept car e-tron quattro.
