The E-tron is four-wheel drive, with one motor driving the front axle and the other, the rear.

Aside from Audi, analysts and watchers of the growing EV industry have been closely setting their eyes on 2018 as the year when countless luxury EVs hit the market. Audi will have nine more opportunities to deliver that kind of game-changing propulsion in the next seven years.

After numerous teaser photos and spy shots, Audi has finally pulled the covers off the 2019 e-tron.

The tires fitted to the Audi e-tron meet the German manufacturer's mileage requirements, Goodyear says.

Tesla stock was up and down, closing off 0.1 percent at 294.84 on the stock market today. Audi's e-tron will be available to consumers toward the middle of next year. There's the virtual cockpit coupled with two touchscreens located in the center console to control the infotainment system and replace the traditional knobs and buttons. Audi expects this charging rate to become the new normal for electric cars, providing the ability to add 180 or so miles of range in about 30 minutes.

It will have two engines, although it is unclear what exactly their power output will be.

Audi officially premiered its e-tron electric SUV at a summit event in San Francisco this week but production has been underway for a couple of weeks already at its plant in Brussels, Belgium, which is making the e-tron for global markets. Audi said using DTS here also allowed it to deliver components from the warehouse to the assembly line on demand. Audi has about 300 dealers in the US. "The idea is to get Audi dealers enthusiastic about the product".

The E-Tron crossover will be flanked by a Sportback variant next year, followed by a slew of other vehicles covering all major segments from compact vehicles to upscale limousines.

The figure has been calculated using the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), which came into effect on 1 September as a more accurate method of measuring battery range and exhaust emissions.

With General Motors Co's Chevrolet Bolt lacking a luxury nameplate, the Model 3's first true rival will be the Polestar 2 sedan that Volvo Cars is planning for 2020, Mr Sacconaghi said in a note to clients.

"Let's make this clear: There is no actual flood of competition coming", he said.

With regard to perfromance figures, Audi did not disclose the exact numbers and only said that it will be disclosed at a later date.
