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.

INGOLSTADT, Germany, March 15 (Reuters) - Audi said it is bracing for a hard year on Thursday as the effects of its biggest-ever model overhaul and the emissions scandal keep Volkswagen's main earner from catching up with German rivals Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

Eric Weddle pitches Michael Crabtree to the Ravens
However, that deal had to be scrapped after Grant failed a physical on Thursday night . The Ravens also have plenty other links to Crabtree.

First came the Tesla Model S, followed by the Model X.

Production plans for the vehicle were announced during the German automaker's 2018 annual news conference in Ingolstadt, Germany, where Stadler confirmed it as one of three all-electric models being developed and planned for launch by Audi by the start of the next decade.

Given the competition among brands within the sprawling and highly political Volkswagen Group, it's clear Audi get the first electric SUV (the 2019 e-tron), then Porsche gets the first electric sport sedan (the Mission E due for 2020).

Southgate keen to lead England in Russia despite tensions
The 26-year-old has been drafted back into the Three Lions fold by Gareth Southgate after two years in the global wilderness. However, Chelsea captain Gary Cahill is one of those to pay for a lack of game time at club level as he is left out.

The idea of a four-door, electric performance GT from Audi is an exciting one. Audi claims to have completed extreme condition testing across the globe on nearly 250 development vehicles before revealing the e-tron show auto. "Who is coming with out with electric cars in the SUV segment in 2020?"

Last year, the brand managed to cut spending by 1 billion euros thanks to cuts in research and development, sales and other departments to help allot more funding for electric-car production.

It seems like you're just not cool in Europe anymore unless you are working on developing an electric sports vehicle of some kind.

Plus, he's battle-tested under pressure situations since he's been protecting Tom Brady the last seven years. I can't blame NY for going out and doing this, which is why I made a decision to give them an average grade.

What's not clear at the moment is how Audi intends to differentiate its EVs, plug-in hybrids and mild-hybrid models in terms of nomenclature.
