Audi aiming for 30% electric sales by 2025
Audi is aiming to have at least 30 per cent of its sales fully or partially electric by 2025.
The focus this year is on top-end models with the new generations of the Audi A8 and Audi A7. The premium manufacturer will unveil the A8 at the first Audi Summit to be held in Barcelona on July 11. With this new event concept, the Ingolstadt-based company will create an exclusive presentation format all around the Four Rings. "There, we will show the world everything that defines Vorsprung durch Technik and our brand," explained Stadler.
The company will expand its successful Q range with two new SUV models - the Q8 and Q4 by 2019.
Audi plans to launch three new electric models by 2020, after which the brand will gradually electrify models in each of its core series.
Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG, said: "We are rejuvenating our model portfolio enormously and will renew five existing core model series by mid-2018. In addition, we will launch our battery-electric e-tron models."
In April, the brand agreed on new development cooperation with Porsche for future vehicle architectures. Part of the cooperation is the development of shared premium architecture for electrification - an effective lever to enhance the competitiveness of electric cars.
Audi's long-term goal is CO2-neutral driving.
Look out for the updated models next year at Blade Audi, Cheltenham.
