Audi e-tron: 7 Things to Know About the Latest Electric SUV

Keogh told attendees at Monday's event that an e-tron had made a 175-mile journey over the mountains east of San Francisco with range to spare.

The automaker says numbers for the United States market are pending, but anecdotal data, acquired from a handful of U.S. road trips in a prototype e-tron, produced ranges as high roughly 270 miles on a full charge, according to Audi president, Scott Keogh. Disappointing metrics for the e-Tron should hurt Audi's sales, while benefiting Tesla as well as emerging local EV players in China, according to UBS. With an optional tow package, it also can pull up to 4,000 pounds. The construction engine is a modular platform MLB Evo, and the latter recalls recently debuted the SUV Audi Q8 and Q3.

China , North Korea's closest ally, said it warmly welcomed the agreement reached in Pyongyang and strongly supported it. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham from SC took to Twitter to voice his concerns.


Audi says that the powerful motors would be good enough to get the auto from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a little over 6 seconds. This innovative recuperation system is responsible for 30 percent of SUV's range depending on driving condition. The vehicle, which is now being christened as "Audi e-tron", is a midsize SUV and will be offered in the United States next year at a starting price of $75,795 before a $7,500 tax credit. Audi didn't specify US range, but the size of the battery would suggest something north of 200 miles.

Set to go on sale next year, the e-tron takes the form of a mid-size SUV with an overall length of 193-inches. The German luxury automaker, which is part of the Volkswagen Group, also announced it is partnering with Amazon to handle installation of home charging stations for E-Tron buyers. The image is displayed on each side of the interior, and while they're more aerodynamic and can cut noise, they also pose other potential issues and are not yet allowed by US regulators.

The E-Tron paves the way for its full electric plans. The Hungarian factory building motors for the e-tron will start with a production pace equivalent to 200 vehicles a day, Audi officials said. It recaptures energy to charge the battery as it is coasting as well as during braking, with the driver able to select the amount of energy recovery via paddles on the steering wheel. The e-tron will offer seating for five and 28.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats; that area expands to 57 cubic feet with the second-row stowed. Navigation is standard, including EV-specific details such as route mapping that includes public charging stations. An expected selection of luxury options is offered, including a selection of upholstery and trim, massaging seats, ambient lighting and Bang & Olufsen premium audio.
