The upcoming Audi e-tron SUV has been previewed in ‘prototype’ form at this week’s Geneva motor show, ahead of a European launch later this year.

It looks closer to a production model than a prototype, but the e-tron SUV still wears a snazzy black/white/orange wrap, with alloy wheels from the SQ7 filling the arches.

In terms of design, the e-tron SUV prototype looks like a cross between an A4 Avant, A8 and Q5, blending a low and wide body shape with SUV ride height. The one-piece tail-light design was debuted on the new A8, and features on recent concepts from the four-ringed luxury brand.

While concrete details of the new model are yet to be divulged, the e-tron SUV prototype is claimed to have space “for five people and plenty of luggage”, along with a charging capacity of 150kW.

The e-tron quattro concept previewing it featured system outputs of 320kW and 800Nm, allowing for a 4.6-second sprint from 0-100km/h, and a limited top speed of 210km/h. Driving range was rated at over 500km. All those numbers are in keeping with what we’ve seen in the Jaguar I-Pace production car, for reference.

The electric SUV will form part of a trio of e-tron models coming by the end of the decade – the other two being a production version of the e-tron Sportback concept, along with a new compact model.

Stay tuned to CarAdvice for Audi e-tron updates in the lead-up to the electric SUV’s official reveal later this year ahead of a European launch before the end of the year.
