Audi e-tron S with new quattro technology: Audi presented its legendary Ur-quattro at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show. 40 years later, a brand new generation of the all-wheel drive made its debut. With it, Audi is bringing electric torque vectoring to large-scale production for the first time. The drive concept with three electric motors and 370 kW is a worldwide first in volume automobile production. It will be used initially in the e-tron S and the e-tron S Sportback.
Fourth-generation Audi A3: The Audi A3 established the premium compact class in 1996. In 2020, the brand with the four rings presented the fourth generation of this success story. From the cockpit to its lighting signature and infotainment, the new Audi A3 is digitalized. With its progressive steering, adaptive suspension, and powerful engines, the compact five-door car demonstrates that it not only looks sporty but also is dynamic on the road. With support from innovative assist systems, electrified drives ensure a high level of efficiency. The A3 is available as a Sportback and a sedan. There is also a PHEV version with two output levels as well as a variant with a CNG drive, the A3 Sportback 30 g-tron. The premium compact is setting out with this lineup to continue the success story of its predecessor, of which more than five million units were sold.
Elegant part-time electric car: Audi continued its PHEV campaign in 2020. With the Audi A6 Avant TFSI e, the Ingolstadt-based brand introduced a model with particularly high appeal for fleet operators. The Q8 TFSI e rounds out the range of PHEV vehicles in the full-size class. It combines efficiency and power in a new way and comes standard with quattro drive.
Bestseller with new highlights: The Audi Q5 is among the bestselling SUVs on the European market in its premium mid-size class segment. Now, Audi has made it even better and more attractive. The optimized Q5 combines sporty character with great everyday usability and features an extensive range of infotainment and assistants. The success story’s honed exterior design emphasizes the SUV character while also offering a worldwide first: OLED rear lights. These allow customers to choose between three rear light signatures when purchasing their car. The lights also take on an additional light signature in the Audi drive select mode “dynamic.”
Updated compact SUV: Four years ago, Audi put a trendsetter on the road with the Q2, and it was a huge success. Now the compact SUV is showcasing its progressive character even more clearly – with matrix LED headlights on the outside for an even more striking profile and additional Audi connect services and driver assist systems on the inside. The Audi Q2 is a real eye-catcher – and now it is even more fun to drive
The indicated consumption and emissions values were determined according to the legally specified measuring methods. Since September 1, 2017, type approval for certain new vehicles has been performed in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Since September 1, 2018, the WLTP has gradually replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the consumption and CO2 emission values measured are in many cases higher than the values measured according to the NEDC. Additional information about the differences between WLTP and NEDC is available at www.audi.de/wltp.
At the moment, it is still mandatory to communicate the NEDC values. In the case of new vehicles for which type approval was performed using WLTP, the NEDC values are derived from the WLTP values. WLTP values can be provided voluntarily until their use becomes mandatory. If NEDC values are indicated as a range, they do not refer to one, specific vehicle and are not an integral element of the offer. They are provided only for the purpose of comparison between the various vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (attachment parts, tire size, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, like weather and traffic conditions as well as individual driving style, influence a vehicle’s electric power consumption, CO2 emissions and performance figures.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of all new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany (www.dat.de).
