Audi has revealed plans to offer 12 all-electric production cars by 2025, with the first joining its line-up in mere months.
The German manufacturer has just revealed its first electric vehicle – the e-tron SUV – with deliveries beginning later this year. In 2019, the e-tron Sportback will make its debut to become the second battery-powered offering.
It doesn’t stop there, though, with 10 more planned to join the range over the coming years. Although full details of the remaining 10 have yet to be confirmed, they will cover ‘every market from the compact to the full-size class’, said Audi, while an ‘Avant’ estate has been mentioned too.
Audi is working with Porsche to develop the ‘Premium Platform Electric’ (PPE), which will form the basis of a number of machines for both firms under the VW Group.
Further still, Volkswagen itself recently revealed its MEB framework – the very first from the firm designed from the outset to accommodate electric vehicles. This will underpin a series of Audi’s electrified models too, covering the ‘A segment’, which comprises city cars.
The firm also shared its plans to expand its current range of plug-in hybrid vehicles, although it didn’t give any more details.
Peter Mertens, Audi board member for technical development, said: “In the future, virtually every market segment will include models powered by a combination of electric motors and a combustion engine that can be charged at an electric outlet.”
