Audi Bringing All-Electric CUV To Frankfurt
Audi will introduce a new, all-electric, MLB-based concept this September at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. According to CEO Rupert Stadler, production of the vehicle this concept foreshadows will eventually hit 10,000 units.
Stadler isn’t the only Audi exec dropping details on the company’s high-riding EV. Research and development boss Ulrich Hackenberg let slip that the all-electric “sports activity vehicle,” might be followed by both a gas-powered plug-in variant and hydrogen-fuel-cell model. According to Hackenberg, the production model will arrive in early 2018, cover about 310 miles per charge, and target the upcoming Tesla Model X.
Look for more on this new model and the concept that will precede it as the Frankfurt Motor Show approaches.
