Audi says an EV sedan with Tesla


An all-electric car is in the works at Audi that will rival Tesla's Model S. The car will borrow technology from Audi's made-to-order R8 e-tron, and Audi says it's shooting for a range of 450 kilometers (280 miles), or, roughly in line with the class-leading Model S.


'Such a car is under development,' Audi CTO Ulrich Hackenberg tells Auto Express. 'It is under development and will be in the market for around 2017 but it will not be a sports car.' Audi recently started selling a plug-in hybrid in the form of the A3 e-tron, and has plans to bring the tech to other cars in its range. Will the company's first true consumer EV will be a modified version of an existing car or an all-new model? Audi is remaining coy for now, but expect to hear a lot more about the EV before it launches in 2017.
