Here are the 3 e-Tron models Audi is preparing to launch soon:
Audi e-tron Quattro:
“This crossover will feature a spacious interior, a futuristic cockpit, and high-performance powertrains with 300, 430 and with a short-term peak of around 500 horsepower, with Max. torque of around 590 lb-ft. This model will have one electric motor up front and two in the rear, and the top model will be able to reach 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds, with a governed top speed of 130 mph.”
Price is likely to be $65.000.
Audi e-Tron Quattro Sportback:
“This is the Sportback version of the above described e-Tron Quattro, and the concept’s looks are extremely close to those of the series production model.
