Audi E-Tron Quattro Concept Revealed

EV achieves an estimated range of 310 miles and will go into production by 2018.

Audi headed to Frankfurt this week with the E-Tron Quattro Concept, a preview of the automaker's first electric crossover. The model is expected to achieve a range of 310 miles on a single charge.

We've seen sketches of the crossover before, but new images reveal the concept in an "Electric Green" hue. From these new photos, we finally see how Audi's new OLED lights come into play on the radically designed crossover. The exterior features a bold new grille, hood vents, and a bulbous back end that make it stand out from the rest of the lineup. But it's not all about the looks. Audi has employed movable aerodynamic elements all around the car to improve air flow.

The Audi E-Tron Quattro Concept slots between the Q5 and Q7 in terms of length, although it only sits four people. Its raked roofline gives the model a coupe-like appearance and could hinder rear headroom if such a design is implemented on the final model. But the cabin does feature an exceptionally clean look, with two screens on the center console instead of a hodgepodge of buttons.

Under the sheetmetal, the new crossover employs three electric motors, one on the front axle and two in the rear. A large lithium-ion battery sits between the axles and below the passenger compartment, giving the crossover a low center of gravity. The model's drive technology is inspired by the Audi R8 E-Tron, which packs a healthy 455 hp. Audi hasn't released specific numbers for the new crossover, though.

The final crossover will reach production by 2018, and will likely bear the Q6 name. Expect more details to be released closer to the launch date.
