Audi Still Has Big Plans For Its Gasoline Models Before 2025

Rumor / Comments

Don't expect to see everything replaced by EVs until much later.

Audi hasn't been stingy with new concepts of late, having teased us with a trio of new vehicles over the past month or so. The first to be unveiled was revealed yesterday, and it looks mental. Audi will be sticking with bold styling as it transitions to electric vehicles, but before 2025 rolls around, Audi still has some conventional models in its lineup that will need refreshing as the new EVs are slowly introduced. Automotive News has revealed what it believes Audi's lineup will look like in the US over the next few years, and it won't exactly be small.

According to the report, the Audi R8 and TT are both set to be chopped sooner than other models, with any potential replacements being full EVs and not hybrids, potentially arriving in 2024. We'd already known the TT was destined to die, but we'd held out hope the R8 would at least be facelifted once more. Elsewhere, the A3 will likely get lightly refreshed cosmetic changes, new mild-hybrid powertrains, and an all-new cabin with all the toys. Considering a new generation has just touched down, this makes sense. The larger sedans like the A6, A7, and A8 should arrive in 2022 with the A4 and A5 the following year. 2023 will also see the arrival of a new Q3 crossover, as well as a refreshed Q8. 2024 should herald the arrival of the new Q7, while the last new gas-powered vehicle is expected to be the Q5 in 2025.

At the same time, Audi will focus on getting its e-tron crossover and e-tron GT out to the masses while marketing the Q4 e-tron that is expected this year. The e-tron crossover is likely to be updated next year with better range while the A6 e-tron and Q6 e-tron are likely to arrive by the end of 2023. The A6 e-tron is likely to go on sale alongside the regular A6, thus helping buyers see how the entire brand is moving away from traditional systems and relying solely on EVs. It's going to be a busy couple of years for Audi as it gets all these products ready, but we're confident that the automaker will do a fine job.
