Audi e-tron quattro all-electric SUV set to make global debut in San Francisco on September 17
According to a recent confirmation by German automaker Audi, the e-tron quattro all-electric SUV -- the company’s “first all-electric Audi e-tron” -- is scheduled to make its international debut in the US on September 17, 2018.
Audi said that the global unveiling event for the e-tron quattro all-electric SUV will be held in San Francisco on September 17, and will coincide with the opening of reservations for the vehicle in the US.
The announcement implies that the forthcoming San Francisco event for the official introduction of the e-tron quattro will apparently unfold a full reveal of the vehicle’s specifications and pricing by Audi.
Audi has said that it will implement the e-tron quattro reservation process with $1,000 deposits. However, the automaker also added that the all-electric SUV will likely be delivered to US showrooms “in the first part of 2019.” As such, the vehicle will not make it to the US this year.
About the e-tron quattro reservation process, Audi of America president Scott Keogh said in a recent press release that the reservation will come with “a digital ecosystem.” Keogh elaborated: “We’re introducing a premium, customer-centric vehicle in a premium, customer-centric way. With our owners and our dealers, this process allows us to offer transparency from reservation and build all the way through delivery.”
