As learned from corporate circles, the first electric car from the Artemis project is to be a direct competitor to the next generation of the Tesla Model S. The luxury Stromer with the code name Landjet is therefore a luxury car that is intended to replace Audi's previous top model, the A8.

The technologies developed there could also be used at Porsche and Bentley, according to the report.

Audi is planning annual sales of 15,000 to 20,000 vehicles, with production and sales starting in 2024.
