Elec­tric per­former

Rutherglen Reformer - - Mo­tors -

A ZERO emis­sion SUV with a range of more than 300 miles is be­ing de­vel­oped by Audi and could be in pro­duc­tion in 2018.

The e-tron qu­at­tro will be re­vealed in con­cept form at the Frankfurt Mo­tor Show next month.

Us­ing tech­nol­ogy from Audi’s high performance R8 e-tron elec­tric sports car, the qu­at­tro is driven by three mo­tors – one on the front axle and two at the rear.

With aero­dy­namic styling Audi says the e-tron qu­at­tro will have a po­ten­tial range of 310 miles and will be­come the Ger­man brand’s first large elec­tric ve­hi­cle when it en­ters pro­duc­tion in the next three years.

The car is de­signed as a four seater and is sized to sit be­tween the Audi Q5 and Q7 mod­els. An ad­vanced or­ganic LED ar­ray is used in the in­stru­ments to keep en­ergy con­sump­tion on­board to a min­i­mum.
