Audi e-tron

Audi has officially joined Mercedes, BMW, and Jaguar (who's already on the road) with their first all-electric production SUV. The e-tron doesn't stray too far from the current Audi design language with a mid-size five-seater that wears the brand's signature singleframe grille with vertical struts, which will now designate the electric models.

 Aerodynamics were a big focus to maintain optimal efficiency with regulated cooling air inlet with ducts for the front brakes, adaptive air suspension, and a fully clad underbody. When it comes to speed and performance, the car will be able to get from 0-60 in 5.5 seconds and will hit a top speed of 124 mph. 

Battery range has yet to be detailed, but the company has announced it will have a 95 kWh battery, which is slightly larger than the Jaguar IPACE, a car that has 220 miles of range on a single charge. Fast charging will be available for the e-tron at up to 150 kW, which will get the battery up to 80% in 30 minutes.
