The race is on as automobile manufacturers begin to make actual progress in showcasing actual electric vehicles available for purchase by buyers looking for full electric alternatives.
In South Africa Audi is one such manufacturer bringing its e-tron range to the country early in 2022. A model range that includes the e-tron SUV, e-tron Sportback and e-tron GT.
Over the past 100 years Audi has built its brand hinged on producing prestige vehicles with advance technology and design. The quattro all-wheel drive was introduced ahead of its competition and the pioneering of aluminium space frame technology are just two of the innovations that come to mind. It is certain when a vehicle is spotted sporting the Four Rings logo it is immediately recognised as a premium product across the globe.
Now a new era of mobility awaits as Audi commits itself to an electric future for its products. By 2026 every new Audi model introduced to the market will be all-electric driven. South Africa will experience the electric Audi range in the first quarter of 2022 with the launch of six new e-tron models across three different model ranges.
Again, Audi is a front runner in the automobile industry phasing out combustion engines and aggressively moving ahead with all-electric alternatives. The business also wants to continue to produce and offer its premium customers all-electric vehicles which are exciting, stylish, and appealing to this new buyer.
The new range offered in South Africa will the Audi e-tron 50 and e-tron 55 in the SUV category and the Audi e-tron Sportback 55 and e-tron Sportback S in the CUV category. The high-performance category will contain the Audi e-tron GT and Audi RS e-tron GT.
Customers have only a few more months to wait until the launch when product specifications and pricing of the e-tron range will be announced.
