Production of the first purely electric driven Audi wagon will begin at a plant in Brussels, Belgium, in 2018, the automaker says. The plant will also produce its own batteries. The Audi E-tron Quattro concept presented at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany provides a clear indication of the final product version, Audi relayed in a statement. The electric tall wagon will fit between the full-size Q7 and the smaller Q5 in the product portfolio. Equipped with three electric motors and a high-capacity battery, the E-tron will have full everyday practicality with a claimed maximum range of more than 300 miles. Production of the subcompact A1, currently built in Brussels, will be moved to Spain.
The actual electric vehicle that Audi is building will be similar to the E-tron Quattro concept, pictured.
