The SAV (sports activity vehicle) would be a four-wheel drive with a range of more than 500 km (310 miles) per battery load, Stadler said.
He also told FAZ that Audi's push to develop electronic drive and digital technologies would mean the division adding 2 billion euros ($2.4 billion) to its investments by 2019. Audi's investment budget through 2018 amounts to 22 billion.
