This was reported by the German edition Handelsblat with reference to the press service of the Volkswagen Group.

According to the published data, the Skunkworks Audi project under the name Artemis will lay the foundation for the creation of similar all-electric super sedans under other brands of the concern – Porsche and Bentley. Apparently, all three projects within the company bear the Landjet name and will be assembled at the brand’s plant in Hanover – for this, another assembly line will be added by 2024.

According to the publication, the Landjet project implies the creation of 3-row super sedans with an all-electric power plant, a range of up to 650 kilometers and an autopilot of at least the fourth level. These vehicles are expected to compete directly with the next generation Tesla Model S in all respects.

The likely platform for building the new super sedans will be a new modular bogie, jointly developed by Audi and Porsche engineers. It is credited with its 800-volt architecture, efficient unit cooling, and support for 350-kilowatt charging for fast battery recharge. According to preliminary data, the Audi Artemis show will take place no earlier than 2024.
