Audi prepares to enter new segments
As previously announced, Audi plans to expand its model line-up with some electric additions as well as a few sedans. The first models to get unwrapped will be the coupe-styled A7 sedan and the new Q3 SUV. Later on this year - November in fact -, we will see the new A8, in both long- and short-wheelbase versions go on sale.
In 2011, we’ll get a few different vehicles from Audi. For starters, a new A6 will go on sale and the smallest model in the line-up, the TT will be getting freshened up. An RS performance version of the TT coupe will go on sale in the United States in the third quarter of 2011. The TT will also come back in 2014 with a complete redesign. Last, but not least, the Q5 will receive a hybrid version in 2011.
About a year down the road, in 2012, Audi will be spitting out all kinds of changes. The new generation A2 is planned for 2012, but the US market will only get an electric version. The A3 will also be redesigned in 2012 with the A5 getting refreshed as well. The R8 sports car will receive an electric version in 2012, but it will be the only year it will be available.
Moving on to 2013, Audi will be coming out with the new A4, possibly followed by a diesel version of the sedan. The Q3 will go on sale in the US in 2013 and the Q7 will get redesigned that year as well.
It’s a full list, that’s for sure, but we are happy about that. We love Audis and we are excited that we will be able to get our fill of them for the next few years.
