Audi embarks on EV offensive as E-Tron premieres

Finally! Say hello to the new Audi e-tron production model...

German luxury auto brand Audi on Tuesday staged the world premiere of its first all-electric vehicle SUV e-Tron in San Francisco. "The Audi e-tron represents another big step toward our electric vehicle future", Brauer said.

"I want Audi to be the leading electric vehicle seller in America over the long term", Audi of America President Scott Keogh informed Reuters.

The debut of the e-tron comes just weeks after Mercedes-Benz introduced its own long-range battery-SUV, the EQC, with Jaguar's I-Pace model now rolling into showrooms in the USA and other markets. His mission? To deliver you the very best photos from the reveal of the all-new Audi e-tron SUV.

A total of four technical platforms and product families are the prerequisite for offering electric vehicles in every segment from A to D. Close collaboration between Technical Development and other Group brands leverages the synergies required for a broad, global range that also offers optimal prospects of financial success. The e-tron's MMI infotainment system has even been fully integrated with Amazon's Alexa digital assistant, so drivers can use voice commands to listen to music, control connected home devices or use Alexa skills as they would on their home-based Alexa-enabled device.

Audi is also partnering with Arcadia Power; e-tron customers will be offered the opportunity to sign up with the renewable energy provider to provide more power to the grid. That technology can't come to the US until receiving approval from federal regulators.

In India, the company is planning to launch e-tron by 2019.

Audi executives said home charging stations would cost about $1,000, depending on the home's electrical system. By July of next year, Electrify America will have about 500 charging station complete or under development.

At this stage no word on when other regions across the globe will be able to drive the Audi e-tron.

The battery pack and dual electric motors provide up to 400 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque with power sent to the rear wheels the majority of the time. Its strategy includes a partnership with Electrify American to build out a charging network across popular retail sites. It offers seating for five, and its length and wheelbase position it in the center of the market for midsize, five-passenger luxury SUVs such as the BMW X5.

But when comparing one standard-equipped, $86,700 "Edition One" e-tron to a top-shelf, standard-equipped Model X P100D, which starts at $140,000 - both of which are priced before federal and state tax incentives - the difference is clear. The Model X uses vertically opening "falcon wing" doors.
