Audi E-Tron Concept Video, First Look

Audi is previewing its Tesla Model X competitor at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Powered by three electric motors, the Audi e-tron concept has a total system output of 429 horsepower, although 496 hp and 590 pound-feet of torque is available through the SUV’s boost feature. As a result, the all-electric concept can go zero to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph. Giving it a 311-mile all-electric range on a single charge is a 95-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that can be fully charged with a fast charger in about 50 minutes.
