The nose of the e-tron is familiar but with a more aerodynamic shape, including a sleeker interpretation of Audi's signature Singleframe grille with a platinum gray finish to signify the SUV's electric drivetrain.

Inside the Audi e-tron, the dashboard features the now-familiar dual-touchscreen setup. Additionally, 999 units of a First Edition model will be available to US customers. Audi is the world's first carmaker to use such a system in an electrically powered series production vehicle.

To help enhance the appeal of the new e-tron, Audi has launched a partnership with Amazon to sell and install home charging systems. However, like all electric vehicles, the e-tron will boast nearly immediate torque, boosting its sporty feel.

Set to go on sale next year, the e-tron takes the form of a mid-size SUV with an overall length of 193-inches.

READ the Audi e-tron SUV's press release here! The company also claims a top speed of 200km/h for the e-Tron SUV. It'll compete against the Mercedes-Benz EQC and upcoming BMW iX3. Filip Brabec, Audi VP of product management, said that the company did not want to create a auto that is edgy and quirky, Mashable reported.

Features such as this have been carefully thought through to make it one of the most practical electric cars on the market.

To look at, the e-tron borrows plenty from the e-tron quattro concept preceding it.

There are some unique attributes, though. It overall has nothing extremely new compared to other Audi SUVs. The rear of the e-Tron comes with a sloping roofline, along with LED tail lights running across the boot of the SUV. One high end option are virtual exterior mirrors - premiere in a series production vehicle. Yes, Audi has replaced the regular outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs) with sleek camera-equipped units.

What the five-seat premium SUV also will have, though, is the same 0-to-60 (0-97 km) time as a 2017 Audi A3 sedan (5.5 seconds) and the lowest top speed 124 miles per hour (200 kph) of any modern Audi except the 1984 Audi Coupe (116 mph). The e-tron is rated to tow 4,000 pounds.

Homologation for the United Kingdom hasn't been completed yet, but Audi estimates it'll have a range of 248 miles in real world conditions.

The e-tron is electric, and has two electric motors - one in the front and one in the rear - driving all four wheels. When the driver lifts their foot off of the accelerator, energy that would have been used to slow down the vehicle instead charges the battery via the electric motor.

The e-Tron SUV is powered by two electric motors placed on each axle. The SUVs ground clearance is also adjustable by as much as three inches. The installation can be ordered online. Electrify America plans to have 2,000 chargers installed by mid-June next year.
