Audi promised to build an all-electric crossover named Q6 until 2020 and an EV sedan a year after. However, they have never said these two will be the first EVs with four rings. That’s because the car manufacturer plans to introduce one of the kind before, most likely next year. The mysterious vehicle isn’t too mysterious at all. They revealed a concept version in 2015, yet now they are working on the production model, which will come as the 2019 Audi E-Tron SUV.
The crossover has been spied somewhere in Germany. As you can see, it’s still totally camouflaged, but it also shows in which direction goes the development. The upcoming E-Tron largely resembles its concept. However, it gets more conventional shape than the concept. There are some unexpected details, especially in the back. The rear end sports A8’s taillights which seem to be connected with a single strip. Up front, the EV SUV sports quite narrow headlights and uncommon and broad grille. The producer will likely add new wheels later, while the stylish side mirrors will definitely stay unchanged.
We haven’t managed to see how the 2019 Audi E-Tron SUV looks inside. However, it’s quite clear that the carmaker prepares plenty of touch screens and just a few buttons for the dash. Plus, they will probably add some semi-autonomous technology.
The carmaker hasn’t said anything regarding the powertrain. Still, we expect to see concept’s three-motor system paired with a 95-kilowatt-hour battery. The overall output should be limited to 435 horsepower, but there will be the additional boost function, which should lift the power to 503 horsepower. If the carmaker hasn’t changed anything from the last time, the 2019 Audi E-Tron SUV will be able to cross around 310 miles (500 kilometers) on a single charge, which is good, but not impressive.
Stay tuned for updates.
