Volkswagen’s MEB electric platform undergirds the I.D. Neo and I.D. Buzz. Audi will borrow the same platform for use in its own small SUV. It will become the third e-tron model – following the 2019 e-tron SUV and sportback variants. (The sporty e-tron GT sedan is due in 2021.)
Think of this yet-unnamed model as an affordable, high-volume baby e-tron. Fingers crossed that its range will exceed its big brother’s 220 or so miles on a single charge from a 95-kWh pack. We will get our first look at it in 2019. The market introduction will occur in 2020.
