The German manufacturer last year sold some 1.88 million cars, but only around 16,000 plug-in hybrids.
Audi Plans To Sell 800,000 Electrified Cars in 2025 and sell 800,000 units annually by that time.
20 models by 2025
Audi didn’t reveal how many of those 20 models will be all-electric, plug-in hybrid or hybrid. The two first all-electric will be the e-tron SUV and its derivative the e-tron Sportback.
Audi would like to launch new models but they require big investments and some conventional models needs to be ceased:
“To fund its electric-vehicle offensive through to the middle of the next decade, Audi has extended by three years until 2025, an investment program worth about 40 billion euros ($47.42 billion), it said.
To free up funds for its electric-car push Audi is ceasing production of some models, including two-door versions of its A1 and A3 vehicle lines, as well as cutting component and administration costs. It now aims to save at least 10 billion euros by 2022.”
