Audi Have Plans To Manufacture Two New Electric SUVs

Audi have recently confirmed their plans to produce two new electric SUVs. The announcement came during a meeting with employee representatives, which was focused on job security through to 2025. Specifically, Audi were seeking to reassure employees over potential fears of job cuts due to the strong electrification and digitalisation movements in the automotive industry.

Peter Mosch, an Audi employee representative, said: “We have long been fighting for a job guarantee up until the end of 2025. That is why specifically the decision on the two new all-electric SUVs is another milestone on our road to a secure future.”

The e-tron SUV, Audi’s first volume electric car, can be expected to hit the market in 2018, shortly followed by the coupe-like e-tron Sportback model. Both cars will be produced at the Audi plant in Brussels, Belgium.

Audi still have a long way to go before they reach the 2025 goal of every one in four sales being a zero-emission vehicle. A third electric car is expected by 2020.

The only information we have on the two new electric SUVs is that they are due in 2021. An electric car for the Audi Sport brand is also in the works, after Stephen Winkleman, boss of the performance division, confirmed in September that an Audi Sport electric car would arrive in 2020 or 2021.
