Audi begins mass production of its 100% electric SUV

Less than a day before Mercedes unveiled their EQC electric SUV, Audi flicked the assembly-line switch to “on” for their own fully-electric SUV.

Known for the moment simply as the e-tron Prototype SUV, Audi has said that many more details will be revealed on September 17th, in San Francisco. What we do know is that the vehicle will sport a range of 250 miles (400 km) with a 95 kWh battery and 150 kw DC fast-charging capability.

This new e-tron will be built at Audi’s factory in Brussels. Through intensive renovations over the last two years, the factory has become instrumental in Volkswagen’s EV future.

If you’re keeping track, the luxury EV SUV segment now includes the Jaguar I-Pace, Mercedes EQC and the Audi e-tron, along with the Tesla Model X. Should Elon be worried?

If you’re curious about the new Audi e-tron, check back with us right around September 17th and we’ll share with you what Audi shares with us.
