As promised, Audi brought along several e-tron prototypes to this year’s Geneva Motor Show, giving the world its first official look at the all-electric SUV model. A proper unveiling is set to take place later in August, and the carmaker has given us a few details about what will feature on the production model.

Firstly, the SUV offers space for up to five people along with plenty of luggage, packaged within a body that is a lot sportier than say, a Q5. A wide Singleframe grille, angular headlights, side cameras and a wide taillight setup are just some of the design highlights on the prototypes, which aren’t very far from appearing production-ready.

Details about the electric powertrain’s output are still absent for now, but Audi did say the vehicle can be charged at stations with charging capacities of up to 150 kW. In the interest of being as vague as possible, it claims “in just under 30 minutes, the SUV is then ready for the next leg of the long-distance journey.”

The e-tron was first previewed by the e-tron quattro concept from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, which featured a trio of electric motors with an output of 496 hp and 800 Nm of torque.

The concept packed a 96 kWh battery, contributing to an all-electric range of over 500 km on a single charge. It was also able to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 210 km/h.
