Audi will present a prototype of a new compact electric crossover in 2019, and a year later will offer on the market its serial model.
The electric crossover will fit between the Q2 and Q3 models, aiming to become Audi’s most popular electric car. The crossover will be available on the market at the same time as the e-tron GT, which was presented in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
By measurements, this prototype approaches the A7 Sportback hatchback. The length of the electric car is 4,960 mm, the width is 1,960 mm and the height is 1,380 mm. The distance between the two axles is 2,900 mm. The vehicle has two luggage compartments – front with a capacity of 100 litres and rear with 450 litres.
The future electric coupe uses the platform on which the first Porsche electric car – the Taycan model – was built. The Audi e-tron GT is powered by two electric motors – one on each axle, with a total output of 590 hp. The electric car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and up to 200 km/h in 12 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 240 km/h.
