Audi to debut three new electric cars by 2020


Audi has reportedly confirmed that it will be bringing three brand-new all-electric cars to market by 2020, with one being rumoured to be an SUV.

In an interview with Britain's Auto Express at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, Audi boss Rupert Stadler stated that the latter will indeed wear an e-tron badge, but stopped short of confirming whether it will also carry the Q6 designation as previewed by the concept shown in Frankfurt last year.

It has meanwhile been reported that the second model will serve as a rival to the BMW i8 and replace the cancelled R8 e-tron, while the third will be a compact car based on the Volkswagen Group's dedicated electric MEB platform, with up to 603 km of range.

Elsewhere, more spy shots of the upcoming i8 Spyder have been leaked with the soft-top hybrid sportscar expected to join its coupe sibling next year. Aside from exterior and interior revisions, the second generation i8 will reportedly benefit from a bigger 10 kWh battery pack upping power to a combined system output of 288 kW.
