The E-tron is custom-fit with an motor and a pair of lithium-ion battery packs, which allows for 134 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. The batteries themselves hold 26.5 kilowatt-hours of energy. Its driver may choose from one of several driving modes (Efficient, Normal, or Sport.) It also features a roomy interior and big, clean graphics on its exterior. Currently, this vehicle is a prototype and only a dozen or so are being driven within Audi throughout North America.
