Audi has made it clear that they are working on a few electric cars and that their new electric cars will be coming before 2020. Now, Audi has added that among the three that they are working on right now, 1 one of them will be a direct rival to the BMW i8 model.
There is not a whole lot of details right now but it is believed that Audi will be releasing the SUV model first before they release the BMW i8 rival. There were also speculation about the vehicle possibly offering about 400hp when it arrives.
As for the BMW i8, nobody knows what BMW is working on right now but it is said that the vehicle will be significantly overhauled and that BMW is looking to offer more power in the new model.
It will be interesting to see which of the two will end up on the top. Since the BMW i8 was a success, we think the BMW might have a slight edge here.
