The tough competition in the electric car market is driving Audi crazy especially when American automaker Tesla has managed to make its mark quite comfortably. According to the new reports, Audi is pushing its engineers and designers to come up with an electric crossover that will allow the company to expand its portfolio and take it beyond the mainstream market. In order to do that, Audi has decided to come up with an E-Tron branded electric crossover that will rival Tesla’s Model X.
Apart from that, Audi has also come up with strategies to have an electric version of R8 supercar probably by the end of next year that will put the German automaker in the driver’s seat while plug-in hybrid A3 E-Tron goes out on sale in the market. This will certainly impact Tesla’s sales because Audi will be ready to offer something similar and powerful making its way into the untapped market of electric high performance vehicles.
