Expect a New Audi Model Every 3 Weeks in 2018

Expect a New Audi Model Every 3 Weeks in 2018

The new model will become a flagship for the automaker's Audi Sport brand, CEO Rupert Stadler said at the brand's annual financial results press conference on Thursday.

Production on the E-Tron GT will begin early next decade at Audi's Böllinger Höfe facility near Neckarsulm, Germany.

When challenged at the conference about which Audi model would be the first to use the Volkswagen Group's pure-electric MEB platform that's set to underpin VW's I.D. line-up, Stadler stated: "It'll be a neat, chic vehicle, with SUV character".

By 2025, Audi plans to have more than 20 electrified models that will make up a third of its unit sales.

The Böllinger Höfe site, which went on line in 2014, now produces the R8 coupe and roadster.




Audi hasn't delivered any detail on the e-tron GT, beyond a single photo, but it's not too much of a stretch to expect it to be closely related to the Porsche Mission E, which could mean a range of power levels up to and beyond 600bhp. Late this year, the company's first fully electric series- produced model will be launched- the Audi e-tron.

Audi will take the fight directly to Tesla this year when it introduces the E-Tron Gran Turismo.

As well as rivalling the Telsa Model S, the new Audi is also expected to see competition from a secret new pure electric Jaguar sedan being developed as a sister model to the recently unveiled I-Pace and successor the British vehicle maker's long running XJ sedan.

As well as challenging the Tesla Model S, the new Audi is expected to see competition from a new, all-electric Jaguar sedan being developed as a sister model to the recently unveiled I-Pace SUV and successor to the United Kingdom automaker's long-running XJ sedan. That price is slightly more than the recently launched Jaguar I-Pace crossover, which will start at 77,850 euros in Germany when it goes on sale in June. The standard bearer Tesla Model X starts at $79,500.

Audi showcased the nearly production-ready prototype of the e-tron SUV at the Geneva stage.
