Audi planed to present its first true electric car Audi E-tron these days, but its presentation was postponed to the early autumn days, more precisely on September 17th in San Francisco.
The reason for the delay was the arrest of Audi's CEO Rupert Stadler and the search for his successor, who will also take over the presentation of a new car. Stadler announced before that Audi will bring three fully electric cars to the market by 2020. In addition to the Audi E-tron, there will be four-door Gran Turismo and a compact car. By 2025, Audi will introduce twenty new electric and hybrid models will in all segments.
If we can conclude by a pre-production prototype that we were able to see at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the Audi E-tron with full batteries will be able to drive up to 400 kilometers, measured in accordance with the WLTP standard, which will be primarily thanks to the powerful 95 kWh battery. The battery can be charged at a fast charging station for a good half hour, and at a 400-volt power supply of 11 kilowatts charging will take eight hours and a half. But more news are obviously to come in mid-September.
