4 Week delay for the Audi E-Tron

Post by Rob » Mon Oct 22, 2018 10:41 am

Audi's first electric SUV will hit showrooms four weeks later than planned because of a software development issue, a spokesman for the brand said on Sunday.

The e-tron midsize SUV is delayed because the automaker needs new regulatory clearance for a piece of software that was modified during the development process, the spokesman said.

Audi staged a global launch of the e-tron in San Francisco last month as part of its effort to expand the market for premium electric vehicles and grab market share from California-based Tesla, which has had the niche largely to itself.

The e-tron delays were first reported by German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, citing sources close to the company. The newspaper said delivery could be delayed by several months.
