Introduction of the Audi e-Tron
For the first time the German Car Manufacturer gain interest in the Electric category. Yes the four rings did appear on a full electric concept SUV by Audi in Geneva 2018. This specially camouflaged prototype, conceals a sporty premium SUV with space for five people along with plenty of luggage. The space and comfort are similar to that of a typical Audi luxury SUV class or more likely with a dimension of a Q5.
Sporty line with huge front faced grille with Matrix Led Headlights, sharp edges with back OLED Taillights that flawlessly fulfill the whole back of the car. We probably would expect this familiar design in the near feature for most of their vehicles.
The e-Tron Quattro is a four-wheel drive SUV that gain power by an electric motor, in addition from the other electric-powered vehicles the e-Tron has constant torque to all four-wheels. The range on the e-Tron is suitable for longer journeys and the comprehensive charging options allow customers to drive purely electrically without making compromises.

In addition, intensive hard tests of the charging technology are being conducted worldwide – an important safeguarding criterion for battery in the electric models. The individual charging standards are tested on proving grounds and in public areas to validate the full range of different charging options.
In total, just under 250 Audi e-tron prototypes are used in the tests. They will cover more than five million kilometers (3,106,856 mi) – roughly equivalent to 125 times around the earth and 85,000 hours on the road.
