Geneva International Motor Show 2019: here’s what Audi is presenting
Audi can do electric, too — and the brand is proving it at the Geneva Motor Show. The stand features exclusively electrified cars from the coming years’ lineup. Center stage: the world premiere of the Audi Q4 e-tron concept.
The motto for the show? The main thing is: electric
“In 2025, every third newly sold Audi should already have an electrified drivetrain.” Audi CEO Bram Schot clearly defines the brand’s avowed goal. In the future, the company’s portfolio will have something to suit every taste, as Audi is proving at the Geneva Motor Show. Only electrified cars — either all-electric or hybrid — will grace the Audi stand.
2019 will be the year of the plug-in hybrid
Audi isn’t just unveiling its electric offensive at their stand, either: it will soon take it to the streets. In 2019, the brand will bring a comprehensive range of PHEV models to the market, from compact segment to luxury class. This year, Audi is launching its big offensive with plug-in hybrid versions of the Q5, A6, A7, and A8. Moreover, the company will once again offer the Audi A3 and Q7 as PHEV.
“There will soon be models in nearly every market segment which are powered by a combination of electric and combustion engine, and which can be plugged in to an outlet,” says CEO Schot.
