Compact Audi e-tron To Break Cover At The Geneva Motor Show

The VW Group is making good on its promise to introduce countless new EVs in the near future, and at the same time Audi may get a second e-tron all-electric SUV.

The second Audi e-tron would be smaller than the current model and serve as the entry-level electric luxury vehicle in Audi’s EV lineup.

Featuring just the one e-tron at the moment, the lineup could expand drastically in the next few months if Audi does indeed bring a smaller version to Geneva and then put the e-tron GT unveiled in Los Angeles into production down the road.

If you’re paying attention, Volkswagen and its subsidiaries are, not slowly but rapidly delivering numerous new electric vehicles. VW itself is set to shortly launch its first I.D. car, a compact hatchback, that looks like will serve as the basis for this new smaller crossover. We picture something that will more or less match the new Audi Q3 in size and physically be inspired by the handsome e-tron SUV.

These vehicles are based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform which is proving to be immensely versatile. Its ability to serve as a building block for cars and SUVs of nearly all sizes is creating economies of scale for the brand which, in turn, should make these products affordable.

There are no particular details spec-wise for this new compact e-tron however we assume that it will sport a 48- or 60-kWh battery and provide at least 300 km of range.
