Audi targets 800,000 electrified sales in 2025

Time 11:42 am, May 11, 2018

AUDI has unveiled plans to sell 800,000 electrified cars in the year 2025.

At the moment, the brand offers two hybrid cars – with the all-electric e-tron SUV on the horizon – but it has an ambitious plan to reach that target: it aims to introduce at least one electrified variant of every car it offers by then, with more than 20 to be available.

The e-tron SUV heading to market later in 2018 is the first step on Audi’s ‘Roadmap E’ electrification plan, with an e-tron Sportback to follow next year. After that, an Audi Sport e-tron GT is planned for 2020, along with an all-electric model in the premium compact segment.

It’s not just its range that the German manufacturer plans to make environmentally friendly, though. All its production plants are set to be carbon-neutral by 2030 – and on top of that, its bases in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm will receive significant investment to cope with the firm’s electrification push.

Rupert Stadler, Audi’s chairman of the board of management, said: ‘Our goal is to revolutionise mobility. Also, in electric mobility, we want to become the number one among the premium manufacturers, with full suitability for everyday use, no compromises, top quality and driving pleasure for the customer. With our technological excellence, we are utilising our ‘’Vorsprung’’ and lifting electric mobility to the next level.’
