Audi seems to be busy ramping things up recently, announcing that they will be launching at least three all-new, full electric vehicles by 2020. This is part of their roadmap to have over 30 percent sales coming from electric or hybrid vehicles by 2025.
The four rings will also be revamping five core models in their portfolio, presumably those that have yet to receive an update – the A1, A6, A7, A8 and Q3. As reported earlier, Audi will first focus on the top end models this year with the launch of the new-generation A8 (11 July) and the second-generation A7 to follow soon after.
In April, Audi has agreed to partner Porsche to jointly develop new platforms for electric cars. We know that Porsche has the Mission E all-electric four-door saloon confirmed for production and Audi has the e-tron Sportback SUV also due for mass production. The two parties did not disclose further information regarding the partnership but claims that it will “enhance the competitiveness of electric cars”.
By 2020, Audi will have a new range of compact SUV models with the Q4 and Q8, three e-tron electric vehicles and five new replacement of its core models. Guess Audi picked up a thing or two from our very own Wawasan 2020.
