It will be underpinned by Volkswagen's electric platform that is codenamed Project Artemis. It is a sports car that can transform into a luxury autonomous lounge.

"This concept car is, on one hand, a real sports car, and it can transform in only a few seconds into an autonomous lounge," describes Marc Lichte. Audi claims this concept car will come with some connected features that cannot be imagined.

The Sky Sphere comes as part of three concept cars that Audi announced earlier this month. These are - Sky Sphere, Grand Sphere, and Urban Sphere. The Grand Sphere will replace the luxurious A8 in the OEM's portfolio. Details about the Urban Sphere is scarce though. All these three concept models will be unveiled in flesh in over the next 12 months, revealed the automaker.

These concept cars are expected to spawn out their respective production models when Audi enters an all-electric era. The carmaker has already announced its EV plan with a timeframe. It aims to become an all-electric luxury car brand in the next decade.
