Default Audi to rival Tesla Model 3 with e-tron premium compact

Volkswagen CEO: ‘Anything You [Tesla] Can Do, We Can Do Better’

Volkswagen Group ranks among the largest automakers in the world, and for this reason, the company believes it has the resources to leave Tesla in the dust.

VW is comprised of a myriad of companies, all of which will move to electrification, and all of which can share architecture, components, and assembly. The automaker won’t truly break into the EV market until 2019 or 2020, but plans to sell one million EVs by 2025 - that is 5 years behind Tesla's plan.


VW Group has shown numerous electric concept cars from its Volkswagen and Audi brands; the first to enter production will be the 2019 Audi e-tron, an all-electric crossover utility vehicle

Audi is getting serious about its portfolio of battery-electric models and is set to launch three electric vehicles over the next three years.

There will be two mid-size crossover models and a more compact premium car

1.Audi’s e-Tron Quattro:

Will hit the market in late 2018 as the company’s first model in its next-generation fleet of all-electric vehicles. The base model is likely to be priced starting at around $60,000.

2.Audi e-tron Quattro Sportback:

Shown as a concept at the Shanghai Motor show, this is a sportback version of the above, with the interiors being cleverly differentiated from the e-tron Quattro. Pricing of the Sportback will be slightly above that of the regular model, carrying a premium of about $5000. It will appear on global markets in 2019

3.Audi e-tron premium compact ( Rival to Tesla Model 3):

This as-yet-unnamed premium compact car will be slightly bigger than the A3 sedan, and it will be the first Audi based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electric (MEB) architecture. It’s fitted with two electric motors, one up front and one in the rear; power output in top configuration will be around 300 horsepower, but there will likely be lesser entry-level configurations. A range of around 300 miles is a given.

When it comes to market in late 2019 as a 2020 model, we expect an entry price point of less than $50K; it will directly target the Tesla Model 3 (if Tesla manages to get it to market by then).

Will look like a variation between the Volkswagen I.D. Crozz and the Škoda Vision E.

Audi E-Tron Sportback caught in motion.

Quote:
the E-Tron Sportback will morph into one in 2019. It’s more than just a rumor as the announcement was made by Audi when the concept received its world premiere in China. It will come out approximately one year after the E-Tron Quattro and will serve as a sleeker “coupe-SUV” spin-off.

Production All-Electric Audi E-Tron Quattro begins road tests,

Quote:
No specifics of the electric powertrain the production E-Tron is going to use is known yet, but in the concept shown it used three electric motors (one at the front and two at the rear) for a total output of 429hp and over 590lb-ft (800Nm) of torque. There was also an “overboost” function that pushed power up to 496hp for short periods of time.
The concept also used a 95kWh battery pack that allowed it to travel over 310 miles (500km) on a single charge.

Audi is planning to introduce the all-electric E-Tron to the market in 2018.
