The electric crossover Audi e-tron will be available in Germany with a starting price of 80,000 euros. This is 2000 euros less than the hybrid Audi Q7, which relies on a combination of a diesel engine and an electric motor. The company is already accepting orders for the electric SUV, with only around 4000 in Norway. It is a model that has not yet been officially presented. This is expected to happen in the summer of this year.
The production of the Audi e-tron will start in the second half of 2018, and in 2019 the German manufacturer will offer a coupled version of the electric car that will receive the Sportback supplement.
A prototype model was shown at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, as it was covered with camouflage. Audi did not report the technical characteristics of the car, but they specified that it would receive a four-wheel drive system and could be charged by a special station for a short time.
