Audi's electric SUV for August debut

The production version of Audi's first electric SUV, the e-tron, will be unveiled in Brussels in August, writes Brian Byrne.

The vehicle is expected to have a 400km range on a full charge. A coupe-style Sportback will be launched next year.

An aspiration to deliver 800,000 electric cars annually by 2025 will be underpinned by the company's strategy of offering electrified versions of all its models by that date.

Most of these will be pure electric, the balance plug-in hybrids.
