Audi Confirms e-Tron GT As New 'Spearhead' Model

The new Audi Prototype e-tron GT shown in this shadowy teaser

Then Audi, Jaguar, and Mercedes-Benz rolled out their plans for single long-range electric luxury models to compete with Tesla. We intend to play a leading role in the tremendous upheaval facing our industry. Audi already offers cars with some degree of electrified drive systems in half of its core model series.

And, as if you need reminding, Audi spelled out how fast it's transforming into an SUV specialist: by the middle of the next decade, one in two Audis will be crossovers or SUVs, it confirmed at the AGM. It may be a rough year for Audi, but the brand may be in a good position in the future. "With this plan, Audi has increased its budget for further training by a third to a total of more than €0.5 billion by 2025". For the electric mobility of tomorrow, the brand is collaborating closely with Porsche and Volkswagen.

Although Audi has announced it is jointly developing a new EV platform with Porsche, the so-called premium platform electric (PPE) architecture, the automakers jointly announced in February that the platform isn't planned to underpin a production model until the end of 2021.

Audi gave us this teaser of its upcoming four-door electric sports vehicle.

"We interpret sportiness very progressively with our fully electric e-tron GT, and this is how we will take our high-performance brand Audi Sport into the future", Audi AG Chairman Rupert Stadler said in a statement. Audi decided that it needed to get back in the game after the R8 E-Tron, so it just announced that it's building the E-Tron GT and hit us with a teaser image.

Audi has previously introduced the e-tron moniker to the Audi R8, in the form of a concept which was intended for production, but ultimately abandoned. Given that it expects to launch 20 new models, including redesigns to its existing lineup, a newest Q8 SUV, and potentially a plethora of offerings to the electrified sector, this equates to a new model roughly once every three weeks.
