Audi has been producing prestige, automotive ambition and technological excellence for over 100 years. From the introduction of the Quattro all-wheel-drive to numerous wins at the 24 hours of Le Mans with TDI technology, the manufacturer has progressed premium mobility for customers globally.

According to Motorpress, a new era of mobility is on the cards as Audi has committed to an electric future. By 2026 every new Audi model launched on the global market will be all-electric.

Audi looks at progressing an electric agenda in South Africa and will be introducing the e-tron to consumers during the first quarter of 2022. This includes six new e-tron models across a model range of three.

“Across the world, the automotive industry are announcing plans to phase out combustion engines to advance the transformation of the industry for the future. As Audi South Africa we see ourselves as being in a position to contribute to this global vision, and having the responsibility to do that. Not only are we aligned with the importance of sustainability, but we have the technology, performance and design credentials within our e-tron range, to offer our premium customers an all-electric drive that will inspire and excite,” said Sascha Sauer, Head of Audi South Africa.

Audi South Africa looks forward to sustainable mobility and aims to progress this topic locally with an effort to reshape the way local citizens view electric vehicles. Audi South Africa will introduce a fully-fledged e-tron range in the local market and this will include:

SUV category:

  • The Audi e-tron 50 and e-tron 55

CUV category:

  • The Audi e-tron Sportback 55 and e-tron Sportback S

High-performance category:

  • The Audi e-tron GT and Audi RS e-tron GT

“Announcing our electric vehicle range is a key part of our objective to have the youngest and freshest product offering in the market and we’re excited to share more details with our customers on our electric journey over the next few months, leading up to the e-tron range’s official model introduction in quarter one next year,” Sauer concluded.
