At its Annual General Meeting in Neckarsulm, Germany, the Audi Board of Management revealed some good news to the company's shareholders – Audi is about to expand its fleet, considerably. The new Audi Q8 will soon be followed by the Audi Q4 crossover, three e-tron BEVs and five completely new replacements for core models in the line-up, which are expected by next summer.
Audi Q8 and Q4 are set to launch by 2019, while by 2020, three completely new electric models are to be introduced to the eager public. After that, Audi plans to gradually introduce electric and hybrid versions in all key segments of its fleet.
This year, we are keen to see the revamped Audi A8 and A7, both of which are to be unveiled on July 11th at the Audi event in Barcelona, Spain. By 2025, Audi believes one third of its entire fleet will represent electric or hybrid vehicles.
Already in April Audi made a deal with Porsche to develop a joint platform for electric vehicles, and they will also continue to work on their digital services, such as myAudi. In 2021 it is expected to have technology for autonomous urban cars ready to be installed in smaller production line-ups.
