At the 88th Geneva Internal Motor Show held from the 8th to 18th March 2018, the Audi Group unveiled its prototype for its first all-electric car. With a deceivingly small exterior that contains enough space for five people and plenty of luggage within, Audi combines space and comfort in this luxurious SUV that is suitable for daily use and long-haul road drives.
The Audi e-tron prototype can be recharged at electrical fast-charging stations in just under 30 minutes – faster than the time you will need to charge your phone. With this first purely electricity-powered model, Audi is poised to include two more all-electric models by 2020, and more than 20 electric cars and plug-in hybrids by 2025.
Before Audi Group launches the production version of the e-tron in the market, the e-tron prototype will complete test drives on four continents – Scandinavia, Africa, Asia & America, and be put through tough tests in the most extreme climatic conditions. The first stop is in Geneva, and anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse or a photo of the prototype can upload pictures to social networking sites with the hashtag #etron.
The production version of this prototype is slated to be launched in Europe towards the end of 2018 after the test drives are completed.
