Audi has recently confirmed that his first electric vehicle will be called, simply, Audi e-tron. The first of the electrical of the German brand will not use any name or acronym more, but simply Audi e-tron, although it does appear in the following electric vehicles of the company. This important fact has been confirmed by Rupert Stadler, one of the maximum responsible of the brand, to the average british Coach.
as in 1980 just used the name “quattro” to refer to a new model of all-wheel-drive that later would continue to many more, it seems that Audi has the intention of doing something similar with the vehicles that are powered solely with electrical energy. The company of the four rings is planning to release of three models of purely electric before 2020 and the first of them will be the Audi e-tron.
co Coach asked the “Boss” of Audi for the production of the Audi quattro e-tron, which was presented as a concept last year, and that on its arrival to the market referred to as Audi e-tron, as a completely new model and that it has nothing in common with the rest of current vehicles in the range. Stadler responded that this model “is comparable to the Audi quattro, which was known simply as the quattro. Long-term the name e-tron will be presented as a range of electric vehicles”. However, it confirms that later the name e-tron will be combined with nomenclatures traditional Audi, as can be Audi A6 e-tron.
on the other hand, and despite the fact that not confirmed, Stadler talked about the possibility that the third electrical model that reaches beyond by the year 2020 is a compact mpv the style of the misunderstood Audi A2. He stated that “we are currently experiencing an upward movement of the demand for this type of concepts for electrical, mainly in the big cities.
