We’re getting closer to the arrival of Audi’s first all-electric e-tron SUV! Audi is taking orders for the new e-tron SUV in Norway, which can be reserved for 20,000 kroner ($2,900 US).
“Simultaneously with the unveiling of the electric Audi E-Tron Sportback concept, Audi Norway plans for an advance reservation solution for the electric full-size SUV Audi E-Tron Quattro. The car is ready for production next year and the Norwegian market is first out with such reservation solution.”
The e-tron SUV is the first of two 300+ mile range electric SUVs that Audi is going to release. The first will be a traditional looking SUV that will be sized between the Q5 and Q7 models in the lineup. The second was previewed earlier this month with the e-tron Sportback concept, which features a sportier roofline, similar to the BMW X6.
Audi has yet to release any official photos of the new e-tron SUV, but we do know that it will have a driving range of at least 311 miles and an output of 435 horsepower, which can temporarily be boosted up to 503 horsepower. That’s enough for a 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds, but its top speed is electronically limited to 121 mph.
Production of the e-tron SUV will begin at some point in 2018 in Brussels, Belgium.
