Audi plan two more electric vehicles by 2025.
Following the news last week of Skoda producing electric cars by 2025, Audi have now announced two fully electric cars to be built at it’s Ingolstadt plant in Germany starting in 2021.
Audi have already planned to build the e-tron SUV and e-tron Sportback starting next year for 2019. The e-tron SUV will rival the Tesla Model X and the Sportback to compete against the Jaguar I-Pace.

Details of the two electric models are vague other than that they will be “another milestone for our secure future” says Peter Mosch, Ingolstadt’s works council chief. By 2025, Audi plans to launch 20 electric-capable models, 10 of which will be fully electric.
According to Rupert Stadler, CEO of Audi AG, the company will be using Volkswagen’s modular electrification platform(MEB) to build a compact electric car. Sales for it are due to start in 2020. The company have not yet announced a production location. Audi and Porsche are developing a premium platform on which EVs can be built. This will start in 2021.
Audi predict that a third of its sales will be either plug-in hybrids or battery powered by 2025.
