Audi has decided to use the e-tron designation for its electric vehicles.
Audi cars will carry the e-tron logo on their rear, similar to the way models now bear the “quattro” designation.
We previously heard of Audi’s plans to produce an initial run of 100 units of its e-tron electric sports car at its factory in Ingolstadt, Germany, in 2012. The car was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt auto show.
An expansion of this small production volume to 1,000 units is planned. No decision has yet been made on where the vehicle will be built long term.
