Audi is increasing its investments into electromobility. This year, the firm has already doubled its product portfolio of purely electric models with the world premiere of the Audi e-tron GT at the start of the year and the Audi Q4 e-tron.

The premium manufacturer is earmarking about $27.6 billion for electrification and hybridisation alone and thereby emphasising its clear commitment to electromobility.

The Audi Q4 E-tron was one of four new all-electric models from the firm this year 
From 2033 on, the future of the Audi brand will be fully electric. With the new all-electric models including the Audi e-tron GT quattro, Audi RS e-tron GT, and the first fully electric models in the compact segment, the Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, the electric portfolio has grown by four additional models. By 2025, the company aims to have more than 20 fully electric models in its lineup.

With the growing number of electric models, the requirements for the charging infrastructure will also grow. The VW Group is expanding its infrastructure with strong partnerships worldwide.

In Nuremberg, Germany, Audi is now road testing an urban premium charging concept: The Audi charging hub, addressed to customers without charging options at home and geared toward managing possible future peak demand.

The firm is additionally expanding the e-tron Charging Service, currently available with about 290,000 charging points in 26 European countries, collaboration with charging service provider Ionity will deliver up to 5,500 additional high-performance 350kW charging points. Ionity is planning to invest more than 1 billion in its fast-charging network for electric vehicles in 24 countries.
