Audi teases with electric 4-door coupé

The German automaker Audi started teasing with new electric 4-door coupé in a series of pictures.

With already launched E-tron SUV, which should be followed by a Sportsback version of the E-tron SUV, expected next year, Audi is also planning to release the new Audi E-tron GT, a sports sedan based on the Porsche Taycan platform. The new 4-door electric coupe is still under the fabric and the German automaker is showing only some bits and pieces.

Audi’s fourth all-electric vehicle is expected to be the first to be based on a new electric-only platform co-developed with Porsche. For the past two years, Audi and Porsche have been collaborating on a next-gen electric platform called Premium Platform Electric (PPE).

It is expected to support upcoming new vehicles from Volkswagen’s two main premium brands – starting with this new sedan from Audi.

The timing of the release is unclear, but Audi and Porsche have previously said that they expect the PPE to go into production at the start of the next decade.”. As for Porsche, the automaker has already confirmed that an all-electric version of the Macan will be their first vehicle to take advantage of the new PPE platform.

Audi is expected to fully unveil its new electric coupé by the end of the year.

Audi also confirmed that the Q4 E-tron will be built only in Zwickau, Germany – at a plant that’s undergoing a transformation to become “Europe’s most efficient e-car factory,” aiming within a few years to produce 330,000 vehicles annually there alone, including six electric-vehicle models from three brands.

The Q4 E-tron will be Audi’s third fully electric model. Led by the E-tron SUV, which went on earlier this year, the lineup will be fortified with the introduction of the E-tron GT super-sport sedan—closely related to the Porsche Taycan—in 2020.
