In 2012, Audi will produce 1,000 units of the e-tron electric sports car that it showed at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and the 2009 LA Auto Show. Audi said it would build the e-trons to order and would stop short if they didn”t sell out.
It now seems like Audi wants to do more with the e-tron badging. At the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, Audi showed a compact version of the e-tron concept. Sources now say that Audi wants to use the “e-tron” badging for its future electric-vehicles. What other electric-vehicles Audi has planned remain a secret.
The move will help Audi achieve its goal of selling more than 1.5 million vehicles by 2015 and to become the most successful premium manufacturer in the world.
