Audi has confirmed their plans to debut a four-door E-Tron Gran Turismo at their annual press conference that took place this week. What’s more, the automaker has even released a shadowy teaser image of what could be the concept model.
“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,” said Rupert Stadler, Audi AG’s chairman of the board of management.
Judging by the rendering, the E-Tron GT will not be lacking in sportiness with its raked roofline and short rear overhang. Once released, Audi’s zero-emissions grand tourer should occupy the same niche as both the Porsche’s Mission E and Tesla Model S. Offering something to those who want to go green but with in a sleeker package.
MotorTrend claims the E-Tron GT will go into production early next decade at Audi’s Böllinger Höfe facility near Neckarsulm, Germany. That’s the same plant where the new E-Tron Quattro SUV will be made and that model is powered by three electric motors delivering 429-496 hp.
The E-Tron GT is just the beginning because Audi plans to have more than 20 electrified models in their portfolio by 2025.
