Audi of America’s president Johan de Nysschen has confirmed its all-electric e-tron concept will make production.
The two-seater concept was first seen at the Frankfurt motor show last month, but no firm production plans were revealed by the German firm.
de Nysschen has been quoted by US media as saying: “I expect we will see running examples in the next 24 months.”
The Audi e-tron sits between the R8 and TT in size. Total available power is 313bhp and torque is 3319lb ft — around 10 times that produced by the V8-engined R8. Performance is brisk; 0-62mph takes 4.8sec, 37-75mph takes 4.1sec and the top speed is 124mph.
