Audi to expand electric vehicle portfolio in China
Audi is to launch five new electric vehicles in China by 2022 in partnership with Chinese joint-venture production firm FAW.
The range will bring pure electric cars with ranges of more than 500km (310.7 mi) and will also see the launch of the Audi A6 L e-tron as the first locally produced plug-in hybrid and the Q7 e-tron as an import model.
The new agreement forms part of the carmaker’s plans for significant expansion of its local produced model portfolio and comes the Volkswagen Group looks to diversify into electric vehicles in the wake of the emissions scandal.
Dietmar Voggenreiter, Board Member for Sales and Marketing at Audi AG, said:“China is the leading market worldwide for electric mobility. With our e-tron initiative, we want to create a compelling premium offer of products and services here.
