After that catastrophe, the Audi R8 product manager said the company was holding off on building an EV version until the available battery tech was better. The major issue was the cost per kilowatt of the battery.
Duesmann also dropped a few new details about the Audi Artemis project. "It’s a battery car with a new onboard network and level 4 autonomous driving," he told Top Gear.
The version for the Four Rings arrives in 2024, and Bentley and Porsche would get versions later. Duesmann says that the Level 4 self-driving ability might not be available at launch because of the challenge of creating this tech. VW's Trinity project vehicle would make use of some of these features.
