Meet the new Audi Prototype e-tron GT electric limo: Audi's going Tesla chasing again

Audi has not revealed anything else, so it remains to be seen how the e-tron GT will turn out and whether it will be a worthy rival to the Tesla Model S.

Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG said, "In 2017, we demonstrated entrepreneurial strength and above all formulated a determined master plan for the coming years".

The GT will follow the E-Tron SUV and related E-Tron Sportback, the former scheduled for launch later this year and the latter due in 2019. By comparison, the Telsa Model X is priced from €96,250 ($A152,000) in Germany. With more than 20 new launches in 2018, Audi plans to manage what it's calling the "biggest model initiative in its history".

Today, at its annual press conference, Audi announced that it's primed and ready to introduce a new vehicle every three weeks this year, with 20 new and redesigned models on the way.

Apple Hosting 'Let's take a field trip' Media Event March 27th
It's unclear what products will be shown off at the event and the invite doesn't give us much to go on. Apple has invited the media to an education focused event that will take place March 27th in Chicago.

Last August, then-head of Audi Sport Stefan Winkelman had suggested the sub-brand would have its own electric auto with coupe styling, whether an SUV or a sedan. "It's a vehicle that thrills at first glance, a fully electric gran turismo that stands for a new kind of sportiness - the Audi e-tron GT". Audi has already received 3,700 reservations from Norway alone for the e-tron. An E-Tron Sportback will also arrive sometime next year to be produced alongside the Quattro SUV.

Audi said the e-tron GT, which will be produced at the firm's Neckarsulm factory, will be "highly dynamic" and shows the direction of the company's performance division. More than half of them will be fully electric; the others will be plug-in hybrids.

Stadler says the new zero-emission Audi model will line-up alongside the e-tron quattro SUV unveiled in prototype form wearing light disguise at the recent Geneva motor show as well a production version of the e-tron Sportback (pictured below) first revealed in concept vehicle form at the 2017 Shanghai motor show.
