The exterior is expected to feature extreme aerodynamic styling, resulting in a dynamic and modern design that is not seen in current Audis.

The Tesla Model X competitor will be based on the second generation MLB platform, and draw power from a full electric power train, which could be sourced from the Audi R8 e-tron.
