This is the first electric car Audi is launching after they showed this concept in 2015.The German automaker claims that the e-tron quattro has a range of more than 500 kilometers (310 miles), but that’s NEDC-rated, the real world range should be closer to 250 miles.

Its combined power is about 435 horsepower, or 503 horsepower in Audi’s “boost mode.” In this mode, the SUV rockets from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds, and will continue to put the power down all the way to its electronically-limited 130 mph.
