It will have a mile range of 310 miles whereas the Tesla model X has a range of 170-230 miles per single charge. It’s really a threat for Tesla!
Audi didn’t announce the details of this SUV but told the world that it will go into production in 2018. The model will be unveiled at the 2015 International Motor Show in Frankfurt on September 15.
Tesla’s new model X SUV will start shipping in a few weeks. It’s the company’s third vehicle and is widely anticipated to be a great addition to Tesla’s hall of fame. Tesla is famous for the alluring configuration and look of their cars. But, Audi is completely conscious of its rival company and it getting prepared to compete with them on a larger level.
