The SUV study, still kept beneath a cover, named Audi concept Shanghai – the first two products made by a new partner, SAIC Audi. The series-made version of the all-electric, 4.87-meter-long vehicle will be unveiled in the second half of 2021.
“We are actively pushing ahead with the change to sustainable mobility in China. With our new arrangements we have created the perfect foundation for this, and are setting a new strategic course for Audi’s business in China,” says Markus Duesmann, CEO of AUDI AG.
In 1988 Audi was the first premium manufacturer to start local production in China, in the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. Since then approximately 7 million vehicles have been delivered in China.
Audi premiered four products at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. Audi A6 e-tron concept and A7L were the definite head turners at the Audi stall. The Germans also displayed the updated Audi Q5L at the event.
