When challenged at the conference about which Audi model would be the first to use the Volkswagen Group's pure-electric MEB platform that's set to underpin VW's I.D. line-up, Stadler stated: "It'll be a neat, chic vehicle, with SUV character". It may be a rough year for Audi, but the brand may be in a good position in the future.

In addition to the e-tron GT, Audi also revealed that the production e-tron quattro crossover SUV will debut later this year in Europe priced from €80,000. The standard bearer Tesla Model X starts at $79,500.

With stable-mate Porsche backing up Audi in a new joint EV venture, the Stuttgart automaker will launch 20 electrified models by 2025, with more than half being fully electric vehicles.

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.

Audi has chosen its Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt to announce that a new Audi e-tron Gran Turismo 4-door coupe is in the works.

The first electric auto from VW Group's premium brand will be the 2019 Audi e-tron electric crossover utility vehicle, to be launched later this year and in dealers before December 31. Since the e-Tron SUV will be produced there, Audi will move production of the next-generation A1 to Seat's Martorell plant. Audi has already received 3,700 reservations from Norway alone for the e-tron. At this year's Geneva, we saw the e-tron still wearing the camouflage.

"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", Audi AG Chairman Rupert Stadler said in a statement.

The Audi Group announced that the company has increased its revenue and earnings under hard conditions in 2017 as the revenue surpassed the mark of €60 billion, which is more than double of what they did over the last eight years. Stadler said added that all "core model" series cars would be equipped with mild hybrid technology.
