Audi hoping to end Tesla's monopoly on the four-door electric sedan with the upcoming Audi e-tron GT. The new electric sedan by Audi is set to launch in 2029 and will be the third-all electric model offered by the German automaker. Exact specifications of the vehicle have yet to be announced, but the vehicle is expected to be the same size as the Audi A8 and it's been hinted that the vehicle will be powered by three electric motors. Audi hopes that the Audi e-tron GT will position the brand in the electric market and will help pave the way for the brands goal of over 20 electrified cars by 2025.
The design of the Audi e-tron GT is based on the Porsche Mission E, which will launch in 2019. Early drafts of the vehicle have not revealed much, due in part to the blackened elements of the promotional pictures, but Audi spoken out about the power performance of the vehicle. A price has not been listed for the car, but it should be expected to come in close to the price of the Tesla Model S.
