Audi TT, a 100% electric version is born

Audi TT, 100% electric, is a new brand step towards electrification. Indeed, at Audi, as at many other manufacturers, the future is electric. The manufacturer’s strategy is simple: in 2026, Audi will stop developing combustion engines, and in 2033, the company will stop marketing them altogether, thus anticipating by two years the European regulation concerning combustion engines. There will be significant changes in the current range, especially in the low-volume models, which could also be described as pleasure cars.

Audi TT 100% electric version: ELECTRIC, BUT STILL FUN TO DRIVE

On the electric side, this role is taken on by the formidable e-Tron GT. On the thermal side, it’s the Audi R8 and its fabulous V10 that still plays the role, but not for much longer. There is also the Audi TT, a model whose third generation was released in 2014 and is not expected to be renewed. At least as we know it.

According to Markus Duesmann, the firm’s boss with the rings, if the TT is to have a new generation, it will only be electric. And the same goes for the R8. However, the director does not forget the essential despite the switch to electric: the pleasure of driving, the leitmotiv of this range, even if this model with a sporting vocation will not necessarily be the direct heir of the TT.

Audi TT 100% electric version: AN AUDI BASED ON A PORSCHE?

It remains to be seen on what basis this sporty model will be built. Audi will certainly not develop a platform and an engine specifically for this model. The foundation will undoubtedly be the PPE platform developed by Audi and Porsche, while the electric motor(s) should be taken from the Volkswagen group’s pool of components. It would not be surprising if this future Audi sporty and electric car shared many elements with the next generations of Porsche Cayman and Boxster presented in 2025, which will also be electric.
