Audi Confirms e-tron GT for Production

Published on March 19, 2018 in News by Danny Geraghty

Audi announced at its annual press conference this week that it will aim to bring the four-door e-tron GT to market in the next few years. The move comes as part of the automaker’s plan to make more electric vehicles.

The four-door sedan was teased in a prototype sketch. From the look of things, it’s clear Audi intends for the vehicle to compete against the Tesla Model S.

“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.

The e-tron GT is slated to be produced at the Böllinger Höfe facility near Neckarsulm, Germany which currently produces the Audi R8.

By the time the e-tron GT comes to market in the early 2020s, Audi should already have a slew of electrified vehicles in its lineup. Later this year, the e-tron quattro SUV will start production and next year, we should see the e-tron Sportback come to reality. Audi plans to have around 20 electric vehicles on sale by 2025, accounting for roughly a third of its sales.
