The Audi A6 E-Tron Could Become the Electric Wagon 2025 Needs
When Audi revealed the A6 E-Tron Concept back in April 2021, there was a very big elephant in the room: The A6 name. Despite the fact that it featured A7-like proportions, like the four-door coupe body, for example, Audi chose the A6 name instead, and there’s actually a logical reason.
Audi Is Unclear On The Future of the R8 and TT, And It Could Mean Bad News Is Coming
2022 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron
Audi is one of the most proactive brands in the electric market today. The company has added two more models based on the Q4 in its e-tron lineup today – the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron. Sportbacks seem to be big sellers for automakers these days and this has prompted the German automaker to come up with the sloping roofline version as well as the conventional SUV body style for its Q4-based e-tron.
Both the models have the same specs and features. The biggest differentiating factors are the shape at the rear and the pricing. With stuff like 300+ mile-range, dual-motor setup on offer, and many tech features, can the Q4 e-tron twins bring huge sales volumes for the company?
2023 Audi Q9
Rumors of a new full-size Audi SUV have been circulating for a long time and now there’s actual proof that Audi is indeed cooking a new flagship SUV model. Recently, a fully-camouflaged Audi SUV has been spotted testing at Volkswagen’s test facility in Sweden, doing cold-weather testing. With BMW’s introduction of the X7 and Mercedes’s GLS already on sale for some years, it only made sense for Audi to bring out a competitor. Here’s what we know so far.
2022 Audi RS3 Sedan
Audi launched the new A3 a while ago, which was soon followed by the S3. Obviously, the S3 is here to bridge the gap between the pedestrian A3 and the out-and-out hot hatch that is the RS3. Here is all we know up to this point about Ingolstadt’s incoming compact rocket.
A new set of spy pictures proves that Audi is hard at work perfecting the RS3 recipe before the premium hot hatch is finally out of the oven. When that happens, the RS3 is expected to hit the market with a tweaked version of Audi’s 2.5-liter, five-cylinder turbo gasoline mill that powers the current RS3 and RS Q3, meaner looks, and an even higher-quality interior.
The Audi Landjet Will Lead the Way Into The Tech-Filled Autonomous Future
As we prepare to close 2020 and welcome in 2021, it’s time to start familiarizing ourselves with a name that could dominate the headlines in the upcoming year. The name is “Landjet,” and it is the internal codename of a new flagship electric vehicle that the Volkswagen Group is developing for a lot of its brands.
Yes, the Landjet isn’t limited to a single make or manufacturer; it’s being developed as an all-encompassing premium zero-emissions vehicle for Audi, Bentley, and Porsche. Different versions of the Landjet — depending on the automaker — will come out, though all versions will ride on the same modular PPE platform that Audi and Porsche developed for large vehicles.
There Could Be a Hidden Meaning Behind Audi Teasing the E-Tron GT With R8 LMS Race Cars
The Audi e-tron GT is all but ready to make its global debut, but the German company is still teasing us with a prototype. Audi’s latest stunt shows the e-tron GT alongside a pack of race-spec R8 LMS models at the infamous Spa Francorchamps track. The gathering took place a couple of days before the 2020 24 Hours of Spa kicked off, so this is more than just a regular teaser. But what is Audi trying to say?
700 Horsepower - Is That Enough for the Audi RS E-Tron GT?
Audi’s incoming e-tron GT, a car that’s been developed side by side with Porsche’s Taycan, is slated for a debut next year. Therefore, the 2021 e-tron GT will share the same 800-volt electric architecture like the Taycan, and previous rumors tipped it to produce in the region of 590 horsepower.
A new report from AutoExpress, however, speaks about a power output of around 700 horsepower. Could this be unlocked via a high-spec model sitting at the very top of the e-tron GT range? It’s possible, but we’re still waiting to hear more from Audi on that front.
The Audi E-Tron GT Isn’t Here Yet, But an E-Tron GT RS Is Already In the Works
Tesla is still ruling the electric sedan field with the incredible Model S, but the American carmaker is now facing competition from Porsche, which is already offering the Taycan. Audi will join the battle soon with the e-tron GT and we just learned that the German company is also working on a hardcore RS version of the all-electric four-door. The e-tron GT is scheduled to go into production in 2020, so Audi will unveil the EV by the end of the year.
You Just Might Be Able to Get a RWD Audi R8 In the United States Again
Remember back in 2018 when Audi released the Audi R8 V10 RWS in a limited production run of just 999 examples? It didn’t last long here in the States, but Audi kept it as a main part of its lineup over in Europe. Now, three years later, a new listing on the EPA’s fueleconomy.gov website hints that it’s making a comeback to the U.S. Market in both coupe and convertible form.
2020 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron Concept
Audi is arguably the most active brand today when it comes to EVs. The company had announced a bold claim that it will launch 20 new EVs by 2025, and surprisingly, it seems to be on track.
The German automaker has added yet another vehicle to its EV portfolio, the Q4 Sportback e-tron, which happens to be its seventh fully electric vehicle. The company revealed the concept version for now and the real deal is expected to go on sale sometime in 2021.
Artemis – The Secretive Audi Special Operations Division That’s Working on the A9 E-Tron
New word has risen from within the bowels of Audi and, as it turns out, the company has a special operations group, known only as Artemis, that’s dedicated to “developing new business models for rapid prototypeing methods to speed development of existing models as well as data collection.” So, what in the world does that mean? Good question. Word has it that Artemis is busy developing the A9 E-Tron to take on the Mercedes EQS, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg, and there’s apparently a lot going on behind closed doors at Audi HQ.
2022 Audi Q4 e-tron
The Volkswagen Group has made some phenomenal strides in recent times. From being caught in Dieselgate a few years back to running a few of the most proactive brands in electrification today, the German group has come a long way. One of its most prominent brands, Audi, also has a few electric models in the works. The automaker’s next electric vehicle will be the Q4 e-tron, which was previewed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Audi recently revealed that the SUV will launch at the end of 2020 and is set to go on sale in 2021. Although it might be the brand’s fifth EV, there are a lot of eyes on it since it will be the first four-ringed electric vehicle to be pinned on Volkswagen’s MEB architecture. It was recently spotted performing cold-weather tests in Northern Sweden.
Update 7-6-2020: The Audi Q4 E-tron has finally be spied out on public roads and, unlike the mule we saw earlier this year, this baby is looking pretty close to production ready. Check it out in the spy shots section below.

2020 Audi SQ7
The 2020 Audi SQ7 is the facelifted, range-topping version of the second-generation midsize SUV. Unveiled alongside its regular sibling, the 2020 SQ7 sports a revised front fascia and a new interior borrowed from the Q8. More importantly, it’s the first iteration of the SQ7 that features a gasoline engine. Launched in 2016, the SQ7 was a diesel-only model up until now. The gas-powered 2020 SQ7 features a turbocharged, 4.0-liter V-8 engine that generates 500 horsepower, making it the most powerful Q7 model yet. It’s also the quickest to 62 mph. The arrival of the 2020 SQ7 gives Audi a proper alternative to the BMW X5 M50i and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 580. Find out more about this high-performance SUV in the review below.
2021 Audi e-tron GT: Everything We Know So Far
Audi showed the e-tron GT conceptback in 2018 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
