Audi un­veiled the pro­to­type for its first al­l­elec­tric model at the Geneva Mo­tor Show last month. The cam­ou­flaged ex­te­rior of the Audi e-tron con­ceals a sporty pre­mium SUV with space for five peo­ple along with plenty of lug­gage space, sim­i­lar to that of an Audi Q5. Audi prom­ises fast charg­ing ca­pa­bil­ity of up to 150 kW to charge the 95 kWh bat­tery pack in just 30 min­utes for a range of up to 500 km. A dual elec­tric mo­tor with 370 kW of power feed­ing an all-wheel drive pow­er­train cat­a­pults this quat­tro from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 sec­onds. Un­til the start of se­ries pro­duc­tion, al­most 250 de­vel­op­ment ve­hi­cles will com­plete test­ing on four con­ti­nents over more than five mil­lion kilo­me­tres un­der ex­treme con­di­tions. The pro­duc­tion ver­sion of the Audi e-tron launches on the Euro­pean mar­ket at the end of 2018.
