Starting with the e-tron, Audi’s first all-electric SUV, the company plans to launch numerous electric cars in the coming years. In 2025, the car manufacturer plans to offer around 20 electrified models, about half of which will be purely electric.

At the same time as electrifying the drive system, Audi wants to push ahead with the digitization of its vehicles and plants. At the same time, the company plans to expand its business model with new digital services – such as “functions on demand”. This, in turn, would require the software installed to be able to be updated via the air interface (OTA updates) – a technology that Audi is researching, but about which the company is keeping quiet.
