Audi e-Tron Quattro Concept Shown In Newly Released Sketch

An official sketch of the exterior of the Audi e-Tron Quattro concept SUV has been released by the German automaker, showcasing a rough idea of what the 500 kilometer-range (~311 mile) electric SUV may end up looking like.

With the official unveiling of the long-range electric SUV now set for the upcoming International Motor Show 2015 in Frankfurt, we won’t have to wait long to see what the concept actually looks like.

What we do know so far, beyond the fact that the EV will possess a considerable single-charge-range, (amongst other things) is that it’s based on the second-generation modular longitudinal platform (MLB) — which has a lot of open room for the as-yet-unrevealed (in detail) drive system and battery pack, which will reportedly be assembled by Audi itself.

What we know so far on that count is that there will be 3 electric motors powering the concept SUV — two on the rear axle, and one on the front. The battery pack, meanwhile, will be located under the passenger compartment, between the axles.

The new Audi e-Tron Quattro concept builds on the earlier the Audi “Aerosthetics” concept — with regard to the use of “creative design solutions” to reduce drag and improve air flow around the vehicle. The new concept apparently sets a new record in the SUV segment in this regard, with a cd value of 0.25, according to Audi.

I guess we’ll have to wait until the middle of September to see better pictures.
