Volkswagen Audi Group has spelled out their electrification plans across the various brands. Top priority in sedan category as of now goes to Porsche Mission E followed by Audi for its e-tron SUV in a span of 24 months.
While this is happening, further developments at Audi suggest that it will also get to produce an all-electric sporty sedan which when launched will take on the likes of Tesla’s volume seller S model. Audi has just released a teaser of the proposed Audi Sport e-tron GT at its annual media briefing in Ingolstadt, Germany. The e-tron GT was presented as a future product specifically from the performance-oriented Audi Sport sub-brand.
At the meeting the company said the car will be built at the Böllinger Höfe specialist plant that now assembles the Audi R8 supercar. This suggests the Audi e-tron GT may be low in volume but high in performance.
Former head of Audi Sport Stefan Winkelman had suggested the sub-brand would have its own electric car with coupe styling, whether an SUV or a sedan. The announcement confirms the decision came in favour of a sedan. No further details of underpinnings or powertrain set-up were made available.
