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. Audi Sport will be jumping into the mix as well, with its own performance-oriented EV in the coming years - the Audi e-tron GT. An E-Tron Sportback will also arrive sometime next year to be produced alongside the Quattro SUV. At this year's Geneva, we saw the e-tron still wearing the camouflage. And these will be just two of the 20 electrified models the German luxury brand is going to be bringing us by the year 2025.

Audi has picked the small plant, with a staff of 2,700 people, as a lead factory for electric mobility within the parent Volkswagen group.

Audi has chosen its Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt to announce that a new Audi e-tron Gran Turismo 4-door coupe is in the works.

The big shift towards electrified vehicles also explains why Audi has admitted the current R8 will be the last, and like the Beetle, there will not be a new-generation in the foreseeable future.

That suggests the future Audi e-tron GT may be low in volume but high in performance.

"We interpret sportiness very progressively with our fully electric e-tron GT, and this is how we will take our high-performance brand Audi Sport into the future", said Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi. The two will co-develop new vehicle architectures to better accommodate EV drivetrains.
