With an electrifying future ahead of us, car brands like Audi are wasting no time in setting themselves up for success sooner rather than later. The brand has announced its plans for the very near future and they promise to deliver on not just one electric model but a few.
Life is an interesting thing if you pay close attention. Due to climate change manufacturers are downscaling their units and producing smaller capacity engines with more power. Amid all the chaos electric cars have lined up as the future of the automotive world. “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.
The change in Audi’s climate is happening so rapidly that Audi has committed to having every new model as an all-electric car by 2026. This is of course a huge commitment, and it may come as a shock to your system but it also means that the days of the internal combustion engine are few and numbered. Audi South Africa is fully on board with the new order of things and has plans to introduce the e-tron division to the local market during the first quarter of 2022. Between you and us, e-tron is the German brand’s electric car division and Audi SA says we’ll have six e-tron variants across 3 models by 2022. In case you’re wondering what the upcoming e-tron range will consist of, we’ve got you covered.
