Audi will introduce nine S models and four R / RSs in 2019March 14, 2019
With the help of a large number of presented models, the German brand plans to regain lost positions.
Audi spokespersons talked about the “unsatisfactory performance in 2018” and how the company plans to bounce back this year. Shipments in 2018 decreased by 3.5% compared to the year before last, and one of the main reasons for this decline is the transition from NEDC to WLTP (fuel consumption standards), which limits the availability of the product.
How is Audi planning to get back in shape? Representing a lot of models.
The fully electric E-Tron Sportback and an extended version of the Q2 E-Tron crossover, which is designed only for China, were confirmed for release in 2019. But we are more interested in learning more powerful versions of ordinary models. For this year, scheduled nine models S and four more models of R / RS.
Let’s start with the letter “S” and start from the top down to try to identify the models planned for this year. Most likely, the S8 sedan will be released in the coming months, and the SQ8 crossover, as well as the S7 Sportback and S6 (sedan / station wagon) can join it. We will not be too surprised if we see the “charged” crossover SQ3 in a couple of months.
Judging by the company’s official plan for 2019, the RS7 Sportback will be presented in the third quarter, and the RS Q3 and RS6 will be presented towards the end of the year. The prototypes of all these models were seen with virtually no camouflage, which is usually a sign of a soon official debut.
Do not forget that by the end of this year, new versions of the RS5 Sportback, R8 Facelift, TT RS Facelift, as well as the recently shown SQ5 TDI will be on sale.
