Of course, the company will not be revealing the production version of its newest launch titled Audi e-tron SUV until 17th of September. This launch is set to happen through a highly flashy event held in San Francisco.

The Volkswagen-owned German automobile giant has been working day and night for mass producing its e-tron quattro for many years now. In addition, the company has been offering periodical updates regarding the price, range, interior design, and other aspects of the vehicle. The Audi e-tron SUV is being produced at the company’s factory in Brussels, Belgium, which further has been undergoing extensive renovation since 2016, for existing as a viable place to stay prepared for the vehicle. And now, the beautiful city of Brussels and surrounding area has played an important role in the electric vehicle plans being targeted by the Volkswagen group. The company has rebuilt the body shop, paint shop, and assembly line at the Brussels factory. It also has set up its own battery production in the same area.

In terms of features, the Audi e-tron electric SUV will be powered by DC fast-charging capability of about 150 kilowatts. The SUV will be five-seater, but will offer ample space to its occupants. Previously, the company had said that the SUV would have a 95 kWh battery with a range of more than 500 kilometers (which is about 310 miles). However, the range has been adjusted to somewhere around 250 miles, although the global figure will be revealed later in this month. Sales of the e-tron SUV are expected to begin by the end of the year.
