In March, Audi had teased the design of a new crossover concept at the company’s annual press conference, which would draw heavy influence from the Prologue concept. 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. The company had promised that it will be capable of doing at least 500 km on a single charge, and could spawn a plug-in hybrid and hydrogen derivative.
