As most of you know Audi has announced a new all electric SUV to be available next year (2018). They have even started taking reservations in Norway. From the various reports on internet i gather that the exterior will look fairly similar to the current Q5 and Q7, and size will be in between them, but closer to the Q5. This makes it about the same height as the MX, but shorter and narrower. And no FWD or fancy windshield. The 'concept car' pictures of the interior make it look very futuristic and not like the current Q5 or Q7. More like the MX. Supposed to have range of 300 miles and 90 or 95kwh battery.
Of course, we need to wait for info on the final production car to see exactly how it compares. Hopefully, we will have that info sometime in the next six months.
Aside from the obvious question about price, i am also curious if there will be a 'frunk' or if there will be a lot of 'stuff' where the frunk should be. Also wondering if they will announce more about charging infrastructure then. As you know VW's dieselgate settlement requires them to set up infrastructure and they have announced a 4 year plan. I am hoping Audi/VW might announce an accelleration of that in the next six months.
Do any of you have any insights on these questions, or other significant insights about this new vehicle?
