Audi's Rupert Stadler underlined the importance of Audi's performance models even in an electric portfolio.
Audi plans to invest 40 billion euros ($49 billion) over the next five years as the luxury-car brand expands its lineup and accelerates a shift into electric vehicles in a bid to regain lost ground against BMW and Mercedes-Benz. That means that while Audi Sport's e-tron GT might share the Mission E platform, it could use different drivetrain components. The standard bearer Tesla Model X starts at $79,500. Moreover, the company will launch more new models than ever before and will enter the age of electric mobility this year. Stadler said at the press conference: "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".
The concept version of the e-tron quattro features three electric motors - one for the front axle and two for each rear wheel. A model such as the diesel-electric plug-in Q7 e-tron might have to drop its existing badging in favor of some sort of new model code, but although Glaser admits something has to be done, he didn't make any suggestion as to what that will be.
Audi has picked the small plant, with a staff of 2,700 people, as a lead factory for electric mobility within the parent Volkswagen group. Solidifying the e-tron GT's performance credentials are the fact that it will be based on the same platform as the Porsche Mission-E.
Last year, the brand managed to cut spending by 1 billion euros thanks to cuts in research and development, sales and other departments to help allot more funding for electric-car production. The two will co-develop new vehicle architectures to better accommodate EV drivetrains. Against this backdrop came the announcement that all core Audi models will soon be offered with "at least mild hybrid" engine options.
