Electrification has fundamentally changed the approach to premium mobility. A good example is Audi, which launched its successful e-tron range in 2018 and is currently in the process of making a full transformation. Audi’s future electric plans look promising. It’s not just about electric motors, it’s about a new mindset with more attention to the needs of the occupants and the planet.
As a car brand, you always have to look to the future for many years. Customer and community expectations are changing at lightning speed. Udi understood that very well. With its pure electric e-tron models, the German luxury brand has charted a clear future path… full CO. by 20502-Be impartial. By the way, did you know that Audi plants that produce all-electric models – such as Audi Brussels in Forrest – are currently operating completely carbon-neutral? So it’s not just about the cars themselves, it’s about the entire process that starts with design and ends with recycling. Everything is rethought, down to the smallest detail.
With its wide electric range, Audi always stays ahead of the competition. For example, you already have a choice of six e-tron models. Don’t you know them all yet? The Audi e-tron It’s Cuban shaped Audi e-tron Sportback From the SUV duo that started it all. The Audi e-tron GT quattro He – just like his inhabitant athlete brother RS A high-performance GranTurismo car. New compact SUV Audi Q4 e-tron It’s Cuban shaped Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron You will often see them driving in the coming years, because they perform well as a company car in our country. In the Belgian registration numbers for new electric cars in the first five months of 2022, the Audi Q4 e-tron took the lead.
In the e-tron range you will always find some important assets as a common base: Design, digitization, performance and sustainability† For example, the Audi e-tron and Audi e-tron Sportback are optionally available with cameras instead of the classic side mirrors. All Audi electric cars also stand out due to their lightweight design. What’s more: In the Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, you can choose from four light signatures in the MMI control system.
The Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron with augmented reality head-up display are also available. Information from some driver assistance systems or the navigation system appears in a virtual image floating on the windshield approximately ten meters in front of the driver. We could list a lot of features, but the message is clear: Audis electric is completely up to date. It is filled with the latest technologies, creative solutions and innovative ideas that are making an impact on society. This is evidenced, for example, by the leather-free interior of the Audi e-tron GT quattro, which contains recycled materials.
What does the future hold?
The story of the e-tron models promises to get even more interesting in the coming years. Audi wants more than 20 all-electric models by 2025 Show. From 2026, the premium brand will launch new exclusively electric powered models worldwide. And by 2033, Audi will gradually stop producing internal combustion engines. “With this roadmap, we are creating the clarity needed to make a decisive and powerful transition into the electric age. We are sending a signal that Audi is ready,” said Markus Dussmann, CEO of Audi AG.
This sign is also clear from Three great study models (and all-electric) proposed by Audi in recent months. Design Director Marc Lichte and his team created Skyscraper Concept (Roadster), the grandsphere concept (luxury travel car) and urban area Concept (a kind of wheeled hall for the city). As the name “ball” implies, the space around the occupants is central. Designers chose a special approach. “It’s the first car we really designed from the inside out,” says Marc Lichte. “The starting point is the interior design and the living and experiential atmosphere for passengers while traveling.”
A6 turns into electricity
Already one step closer to serial production, the Audi A6 e-tron concept and separator version Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept† The Audi A6 family will be electric in the near future and both models have already been offered as study models. With a range of up to 700 km (WLTP) and a battery that charges 300 km in just 10 minutes with a 270 kW fast charger, they aim to set new standards in the luxury car segment. Just as current e-tron models have done before.
Design Director Marc Lichte thinks it’s great to be able to work on all-electric Audis: “It was never exciting to be an automobile designer. Now is the time to shape cars in a different and new way. In other words: defining the future of car design. Electric driving paves the way for that.”
