Audi will start EV production in Germany in 2020

The Audi factory at Neckarsulm

As part of its aggressive plan to make more electrified cars, Audi will launch a four-door E-Tron Gran Turismo in the next few years. The E-Tron GT will make an interesting rival to the Tesla Model S.

Separately, Audi sales chief Bram Schot said the luxury carmaker is targeting a share of electric-car sales of between 30 and 35 percent of its overall deliveries by 2025 when it plans to offer about 20 electrified cars on sale.

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. It's due early next decade and may end up replacing the R8 supercar as Audi Sport's flagship.

Compton, who on Thursday will open her second restaurant called Bywater American Bistro, was a nominee a year ago for this award. In recent years, Houston has had a great showing in the James Beard Awards' Best Chef in the Southwest category.

"Together we will significantly expand our product range above all in the area of electrified drive systems and sporty SUVs", Stadler added.

In microcosm, then, the new e-tron GT reflects how auto makers are gradually shifting their product focus from internal combustion engines to electric powertrains. This compares to the €77,850 ($A123,000) price tag Jaguar confirmed for its new I-Pace at the recent 2018 Geneva motor show.

"By 2019, we will probably have the youngest model portfolio in the premium segment", Chief Executive Rupert Stadler said.

Audi's labour leaders have urged management to invest in battery-cell technology and to assemble power packs at the two core factories in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm, where R&D operations and two thirds of the 91,000 workforce are based. An E-Tron Sportback will also arrive sometime next year to be produced alongside the Quattro SUV. The smaller SUV will be underpinned by VW Group's MEB platform. Audi will stage the world premiere of the battery-electric vehicle this summer in Brussels.

Kia has released more teasers for its redesigned K900, which is expected to debut at this month's 2018 NY auto show.
