With production expected to begin early next decade, the E-Tron GT will be the Audi Sport competitor to the high-performance Tesla Model S. The new E-Tron will be built at Audi's Bollinger Hofe facility near Neckarsulm, Germany, where the R8 supercar now resides.

The production spec e-tron will be showcased in Brussels later this year before going on sale in 2019. The Tesla Model X electric SUV starts at 96,250 euros in Germany.
