The company has officially confirmed that the next Audi RS4 will be presented in a hybrid version, supplemented by a plug-in module. It will appear only at the beginning of the next decade.

However, Audi Managing Director Oliver Hoffman has confirmed that Audi Sport plans to electrify its entire lineup for the foreseeable future. The start will be made by electrifying the new RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback, which will be complemented by a 48-volt “soft” hybrid system. Later they will upgrade the current generation RS4 and the new RS Q3, TT RS, RS3, RS5, as well as the new R8 and RS Q8.

The current generation of RS4 is currently awaiting an update. It will be released before the end of the year. The model is expected to retain a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6. Perhaps the company will slightly increase its current capacity (450 hp). It is currently accelerating from standstill to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds. The maximum speed reaches 280 km / h.
