The Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo uses a three-motor layout, often used by Audi in previous prototype or concept cars. Two electric motors drive the rear axle and the third one the front axle, using individual components from the future Audi e-tron. Because each motor is 200 kW, the total output stands at 600 kW.

The question is whether the production e-tron SUV also will have 600 kW of power from its 95 kWh battery?
