Audi is accepting deposits for the all-new, all-electric, E-Tron.
Customers can place a £1,000 deposit online or via an Audi centre for the Jaguar I-Pace rival, and expect delivery before the end of the year.
The manufacturer is targeting a range of more than 300 miles for production versions.
Depositors will be the first to be informed of the final UK pricing and specification position and of the options available, enabling them to submit an order via their preferred Audi Centre before the car becomes publicly available later this year.
They will also be enrolled in a Priority Order Members Club which will entitle them to be the first to order the series production model and provide invitations to special preview events and opportunities to enter exclusive competitions.
The premium SUV based is on the e-tron quattro concept, which boasted a 500PS output. It will be 80% rechargeable in less than 30 minutes at fast-charging stations with up to 150kW capacity. With motive power to each axle it will also offer the all-weather traction advantages of ‘e-quattro’ drive.
The E-Tron will be the first Audi to be built on the next generation MEB platform, one of the key cornerstones underpinning the brand’s advance towards widespread electrification of the model portfolio. More than 20 electric cars and plug-in hybrids will join the range by 2025, spread across all segments and concepts.
