Frankfurt 2015: Audi E-Tron Quattro Concept Teased Further Prior To DebutAuto News
Audi has released two new teaser images of the e-tron quattro concept prior to its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This adds on to the initial preview released back in August and more recently, a video sketch of the concept.
The images now give us a look at the actual vehicle in the metal although most of it is still under wraps. Nonetheless, the first teaser gives us a glimpse of the e-tron quattro’s front-end with the prominent four-ringed badge located on a chromed grille. The ‘e-tron’ lettering is also located on the bumper while sharp headlights as those seen on recent Audi introductions like the TT and A4 can be roughly seen beneath the covers.
Onto the second teaser where we see the rear-end of the concept, where the black lower body panels are reminiscent as those on Audi’s allroad models. Slim taillights with aggressive slits can also be seen along with blade-like five-spoke silver wheels.
We’ve already been told that the e-tron quattro concept will feature the latest modular longitudinal platform (MLB) as its underpinnings and that the vehicle’s proportions sit between the Q5 and Q7, possibly hinting at a new Q6.
Powering the concept are three electric motors located between the axles (two driving the rear, one driving the front), powered by a large lithium-ion battery. The body’s sleek design is said to have a drag coefficient value of just 0.25, a supposed leading number in the SUV world.
More details along with the vehicle’s final outlook will be revealed during the Frankfurt Motor Show.
