The Audi TT is supposed to transform into the eTTron, an all-electric crossover, in order to stay alive according to rumours.
This is not the first time we hear about the possibility of the Audi TT being repositioned in the crossover niche. Or even that the Coupe (also available as a roadster) would go electric.
At least that’s what the British magazine Auto Express says, even stating that TT worldwide sales (of 8,756 coupes and 3,362 roadsters) demonstrate once again that the sport coupe market is in net regression.
Needless to say, Audi also focuses on electricity for the future of its fleet, and this metamorphosis of the TT into the eTTron – this is the envisioned name of this future electric crossover with sporty proportions – is one of the 20 models planned by 2025.
We expect a more compact vehicle than the current Q3, with a silhouette closer to the ground. According to the British publication, the cockpit of this future Audi eTTron would also be very rich in touch screens. What’s more, the sport SUV would be based on the same platform as the new Volkswagen ID.3 (also known as MEB), so as to reduce development costs.
Auto Express is even stating that the vehicle will be available with three battery capacities (45 kWh, 58 kWh and 78 kWh), the first of the lot being intended for the base model, while at the other end of the spectrum, the “big” battery would be reserved for the more spicy livery with greater autonomy and pure performance.
We do not yet know the timetable for this future model, both utilitarian and sporty, but with the current TT cycle that will soon come to an end, we should not be surprised if this Audi eTTron arrives on our roads sooner than later.
