Audi planning an e-Tron version of the current Q7

Article by Christian A., on August 7, 2013

The Audi e-Tron family is getting bigger, at least according to CarAdvice who says that the German manufacturer will build an electrified Q7 e-Tron. Same Australian website says that the new model will be shown before the current model will be replaced in 2015.

For those who don’t know, the e-tron story began with the Audi R8 e-Tron, but the model was axed back in May as the German carmaker announced that it will not produce it as it is not satisfied by the technology incorporated in the batteries and due to high costs. After this model, Audi presented the A1 e-Tron Concept and then the production A3 e-Tron.

The last model is powered by a 1.4-liter petrol engine which delivers 150 hp as well as by an electric motor developing 100 hp. Audi says that the A3 e-Tron has a fuel consumption of just 1.5 liters of fuel per 100 km. Regarding the Q7 e-Tron, Audi’s managing director in Australia, Mr. Andrew Doyle didn’t give any details about the powertrain combination which the big SUV will use.
