Audi is going to offer the Chinese more than 9 electric cars by 2021November 8, 2019
Next year, the German brand has scheduled the start of production of the electric crossover Audi e-tron. Over time, the company will offer the Chinese at once nine environmentally friendly cars, and in the near future it will electrify all cars for China.
China is known for its love of electric cars. Perhaps that is why the German company Audi in this regional market decided to bet on “green” models. So, Audi plans to produce more than nine electrified cars in the Middle Kingdom by 2021. The all-electric Audi e-tron crossover is already being imported, and its local production will begin in 2020 at the FAW-Volkswagen Changchun plant.
Recall that the brand already sells two hybrids in the Chinese car market – a locally manufactured version of the extended A6 sedan and an imported Q7 SUV. By the end of this year, Audi is going to offer its customers in China three more hybrids with interchangeable modules – Q5 crossovers and A7 Sportback and A8 sedans. By 2021, the number of electrified cars in the model range of the brand for China will exceed nine units. Details about the news in the brand are still silent. Further more. By 2025, Audi wants to electrify all of its products available for purchase in the Middle Kingdom.
As for brand sales in China, over the nine months of this year they increased by 1.7% – up to 491,040 units. A new strategy will improve this result.
