The road-going version may not exist yet, but like Tesla’s Model 3, Audi has decided to gauge customer interest in a new all-electric SUV by opening up the order book.

And what better place to start than Norway, which has transformed itself into the unofficial world ‘capital’ for electric vehicles in recent years.

Customers of the four-ring brand in Norway can now place a deposit on what will likely become the Audi e-Tron Quattro, as previewed in a series of concepts from the German carmaker.

“Audi Norway announces the plans for a pre-booking solution for the electric SUV Audi e-tron quattro,” Audi said on its Norwegian website.

“The car is ready for production next year, and the Norwegian market will be released first with such a reservation solution.”

The most recent of Audi’s EV concepts is the e-tron Sportback, which debuted last week at the Shanghai Auto Show, but the Q6 e-tron Quattro concept of 2015 (pictured) is the most likely precursor for the road-going model which would give Audi a direct rival for Tesla’s Model X SUV.

Power could be rated at around 370kW/800Nm, and naturally, all-wheel-drive is a must. The battery pack will also match the Model X P100D at 95kWh, offering a maximum range of around 500km between charges.

Audi has declared that the new model is coming next year, and a refundable deposit of around AU$3000 will get you a spot in line - in Norway. Audi is yet to reveal the full purchase price.
