In the case of Audi, which is already finalizing the details for the arrival of the e-tron quattro, the new model would be based on the new platform MEB of Volkswagen and would have a size somewhat larger than the current A3 sedan. This would be an autonomy of around 300 miles (482 kms) and a ceiling of power at around 300 horses.
In the case of BMW, the signing of the Munich would be already preparing for what the publication Coach points to as a new Series 4 GT electric, which would have a range of around 500 kilometres and the possibility of having an engine or two, in this latter case, with the motors on both axles and all-wheel drive.
