Audi Plans Electric Crossover to Take on Tesla in U.S.

Updated on

Audi AG plans to roll out an electric-powered crossover in 2017 to challenge Tesla Motors Inc. for wealthy, environmentally conscious consumers.

The new model will mark Audi’s first mainstream all-electric vehicle and is part of a push to roll out greener cars. Next year, Audi will introduce a battery-powered variant of the $115,900 R8 sports car, which will follow the start of deliveries of the plug-in hybrid A3 E-Tron hatchback this year.
