Audi’s transition towards electric mobility has yielded positive results for the e-tron range around the world. Of the models launched last night, Audi has sold more than 52,000 units globally, which represents two thirds of total Audi electric vehicle sales.
“From 2022 onwards, Audi SA is committed to grow the e-tron model range locally and will introduce at least one new electric model each year to grow consumer choice and demonstrate our commitment in securing a leading electric vehicle position within the premium automotive market from the start in SA. It doesn’t stop at a product level. Audi has also partnered with GridCars and invested in building the largest and fastest electric vehicle public charging network in the country,” Sauer said.
Audi e-tron models available to local consumers include three e-tron 55 derivatives, the e-tron 55 Sportback, e-tron S Sportback, and flagship e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT. An exclusive e-tron 55 First edition will also be available to customers in limited numbers and for a limited time from the second half of 2022. All e-tron models are covered by a five-year/100,000km maintenance plan and an eight-year/160,000 km battery warranty.
