AUDI SEES STRONG 2021 GROWTH IN EV SALES
Audi AG has announced that it increased deliveries of fully electric vehicles by over 57% in 2021. The group sold 81,895 EVs in a year made challenging for all automakers by the global shortage of semiconductors.
The company went to say that it expects to have more than 20 fully electric models in its portfolio by 2025 and will be exclusively bring new fully electric models to the market from 2026.
Hildegard Wortman, Member of the Board of Management for Sales and Marketing is pleased with the speed of the company’s transition to a zero-emission future.
“We’re looking to the future with confidence,” she said. “High demand for electric vehicles from Audi confirms our early decision in favour of zero-emission drive systems. We are taking the momentum with us into 2022 and systematically pressing ahead with our transformation. The large number of incoming orders also shows that we have the right portfolio.”
The presentation during 2021 of the e-tron GT, RS e-tron GT, Q4 e-tron and Q4 Sportback has more than doubled the company’s product portfolio of fully electric vehicles.
“Although semiconductor supply will continue to be strained in the coming months, the strong growth in electric model deliveries gives us a tailwind to stick unflinchingly to our roadmap,” concluded Hildegard Wortman.
