Audi to Unveil Its First Electric Car in September

Audi will officially unveil its electric e-tron SUV in San Francisco on September 17. The news was first announced by Green Car Congress.

The company will reserve and configure the new car on the day of the reveal. Buyers will have to pay a refundable deposit of $1,000 each for their reservations. Audi will announce more details about the car on its official website after the event.

The company will launch three electric vehicles in the next two years. The e-tron is the first of the three, and also its first pure electric car.

Audi expects nearly 30% of its customers to go electric by 2025.

Buyers of electric vehicles are often concerned about the time the cars take to charge, but automakers like Audi are eliminating this concern. The new Audi SUV is powered by a 95kWh battery pack that uses DC fast charging. The battery can go from zero to 80% in less than half an hour.

Drivers are often also wary about the battery range of electric vehicles. However, e-tron’s battery pack is said to have a range of more than 200 miles. It reportedly comes with an innovative recuperation system that increases battery range.

The SUV can comfortably seat five people and accelerate to 62mph in less than six seconds. More details about the speed and charging network will be announced at the event.

The car recuperates energy in three ways:

1) manual coasting recuperation with shift paddles

2) automatic coasting recuperation through the predictive efficiency assist

3) brake recuperation due to a smooth transition between electric and hydraulic deceleration

At the beginning of August this year, Audi tested the recuperation system at a Pikes Peak run in Colorado. On a 30km downhill drive, the car was able to generate enough power to run almost the same distance again.
