Premium carmakers are betting like crazy on Electric SUVs and crossovers, if we are to go by the concepts exhibited at International Auto shows around the world.
Audi was the first automaker which has given us a clear vision for an electric SUV/crossover through the e-tron Quattro concept, exhibited at the 2015 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show. It proposes a bodywork SUV, with more plunged profiles than the Q7.

The propulsion system of the Audi e-tron quattro is composed of three electric motors (one at the front and two at the rear axle). The engine delivers up to 370 kW (496 hp) and 800 Nm of torque, which enables a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds and a top speed limited to 210 km / h.

The 95 kWh battery is credited with a range of over 500 km and can be recharged by induction and when fully charged from a 150 kW DC source, it lasts 50 minutes. Audi e-tron quattro will be produced at its plant in Brussels in early 2018.

Jaguar announced for 2018 the launch of its first electric model that will be an SUV. This was prefigured by the I-PACE concept, presented in November, which is characterized by an SUV design, much sportier than Audi's e-tron quattro. The Jaguar I-PACE has one electric motor on each axle, which ensures all-wheel drive and together produce 400 hp and 700 Nm of torque.

The sprint from 0 to 96 km / h takes place in about 4 seconds.
The 90 kWh batteries have a range of over 500 km and can be charged up to 80 percent in 90 minutes, using a 50 kW DC source.

Mercedes-Benz plans to introduce 10 100 percent electric models by 2025, but until 2020 it will begin the series production for the EQ SUV coupe, introduced this fall. This model will be built in Bremen and will be the first model of the EQ sub-brand, which Mercedes-Benz decided to devote to electric cars, following the BMW i example. The Mercedes-Benz electric SUV is built on a scalable platform that will be taken over by other electric models. For reducing the weight of the EQ models, aluminum and carbon, in addition to steel, will be used extensively.

The propulsion system provides four-wheel drive via two electric motors. The maximum power of the system can reach 300 kW (402 hp) and 700 Nm of torque, and the 70 kWh battery life allows a range of up to 500 km.

Going 0 to 100 km / h needs less than 5 seconds. Mercedes Benz is working on a power system rated at 300 kW, which in 5 minutes would charge the batteries to last 100 km.

The least information we have at the moment relates to BMW's electric SUV. The Bavarians have officially communicated just the fact that from 2020 they will offer a 100 percent electric version of the next X3 generation, without giving any technical details.
Bottom lines is that these electrified SUVs will serve as role models, and provide the image and volume the premium brands need to really kickstart this segment's story.
