Audi is gearing up to , starting with the that will take on the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace. We’ll get to see it in all its production glory in Brussels on August 30, but in the meantime a near-production prototype of the has been caught by our spies being tested on the Nurburgring. It’s wearing the same camouflage as the prototype Audi previewed at the Geneva Motor Show, but this is the first time we’ve seen it tearing up the track.

While Audi is busy applying the finishing touches to the , the design hasn’t changed since the prototype was unveiled in March. An aerodynamic grille is flanked by distinctive headlights and triangular air intakes. The overall shape is less dramatic than the original concept and looks like a cross between a wagon and crossover, allowing Audi to capitalize on the popularity of crossovers while offering the practicality of a wagon. Audi has confirmed the e-tron will have a 95 kWh lithium-ion battery enabling the electric crossover to travel more than 248 miles. As standard, an 11 kW AC charger will enable the model to be charged at up to 2.3 kW when connected to a 230 volt household outlet.

This enabled the e-tron to hit 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds before reaching a limited top speed of 130 mph.
