With BMW and Mercedes both construction electric sub-brands, one automaker has been formerly larboard out of the electric conversation: Audi. However, gen from Autocar helps shed some counterglow on the Audi electric situation, and it starts with an SUV.

Autocar spoke with Audi chairman Rupert Stadler, who said Audi’s new electrifying SUV will be called the E-Tron. He told the f the naming scheme would be similar to how Audi introduced Quattro all-where drive with a car named after the v. Also like Quattro, Stadler said other Audi models with electrified powertrains intent receive E-Tron suffixes. In a way, it will be like BMW’s naming layout with the i sub-brand; some models are right-minded referred to by the i designation, while normal models with cross or electric powertrains have names such as iPerformance. Autocar also revealed that other tense-only E-Tron models will arrive later, probably in the forms of a hatchback and a sedan.

This talk also shows that Audi hasn’t acknowledged up on electric car development. Just last week, the society killed off its R8 E-Tron electric supercar. While the shake up raised some eyebrows here, since the R8 E-Tron could maintain been a great electric halo car for the new stamp, it seems Audi is more interested in congeries-market electric vehicles. The R8 E-Tron, which get $1,000,000, sold fewer than 100 units and could just be purchased by getting in touch with Audi undeviatingly, didn’t really fit that bill.
