Audi and its Chinese partner the FAW Group have crafted a new strategic growth plan that calls for expanding the line-up of models produced in China, including electrified vehicles.

In the next five years, Audi and FAW plan to produce five additional e-tron models for the Chinese market, including pure EVs with ranges of more than 500 kilometers (311 miles). Beginning this year, Audi will sell two plug-in hybrid models in China: the locally produced A6 L e-tron, and the imported Q7 e-tron.

“China is the leading market worldwide for electric mobility. With our e-tron initiative, we want to create a compelling premium offer of products and services here,” says Dietmar Voggenreiter, Board Member for Sales and Marketing.
