The Volkswagen group is looking to expand its footprint in the Indian market with the electric vehicles e-tron SUV and the e-tron Sportback on July 22, 2021. While this is an exciting news in itself, the German luxury car brand has just teased automobile lovers around the world with their concept sketches for three new autonomous vehicles.
The brand has released the concept sketches of 3 luxury models named as the Sphere series. An autonomous luxury sedan codenamed as Grand Sphere, a sports car with a two door coupe named as Sky Sphere and the urban SUV named as urban Sphere. While it is too early to predict any launch dates or prices about the cars, it can be said without a doubt that the launch dates will at least be a year away in 2022.
The teaser videos were posted by the Head of Design at Audi, Mr. Marc Lichte and Senior Vice-President of Audi, Mr. Henrik Wenders. As per Wender’s words on the video, the cars will “reinvent mobility”. So, one can expect it to be completely autonomous. A brand like Audi will not gamble with an untested technology on the roads and hence one can expect many real life on-road tests before the final launch of the cars.
We are unsure when the real cars will be unveiled but the slender and sleek Sky Sphere will definitely rob the hearts of many sports car lovers. Although, Sky Sphere will be an autonomous car, it will still be a car to drive. The elegant Grand Sphere will do away with the need for chauffeurs and drivers and make that city commute to the office a pleasurable experience. The urban Sphere SUV will be a safe and secure car for those who like to establish their presence on the road and off-road.
Audi is also looking to expand the lineup of cars in India with the launch of A3 & Q3. This is in addition to the mid-life facelift of the Audi Q5 & the Audi Q7. Audi is really welcoming the future of tomorrow, today.
