Two more electric vehicles are being added to the growing list of vehicles planned by Volkswagen AG, this time an all-electric e-Tron grand tourer that will be the size of Audi’s A4 sedan, and an electric Q2 L compact crossover.

To be released in 2023, the all-electric A4-sized sedan will join Audi’s e-Tron SUV which it launched last year, an e-tron Sportback which is yet to be launched and the Q4 E-tron concept which is due to go into production in late 2020 and was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month.

The details were confirmed by Audi’s design chief, Marc Lichte, who told Auto Car that: “There will be an E-tron GT in the [A4- sized] segment as well. We’re working on this right now.”

It will be built on the brand’s PPE architecture, which is underpinning its foray into electromobility.

Along with the original e-Tron, the Q4 and the A4 e-Trons, Audi are also trotting out a GT which Lichte says will become its “halo car” – the overriding representative of the brand’s electric drivetrain division.

Audi is also soon to launch a Q2 L e-Tron in China, it said in a press release prior to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
