Audi plans to expand its full-electric lineup to 20 models globally by 2025, CEO Markus Duesmann said in March. The brand’s first model on the PPE (Premium Platform Electric) architecture, which it has developed with Porsche, will be the Q6 e-tron arriving next year. The Q6 e-tron will be a sister model to the upcoming Porsche Macan EV.
Audi will use the platform for all its higher-end full-electric cars that are midsize or above, Audi CEO Markus Duesmann said at the brand's annual press conference on March 18. Audi and Porsche plan to sell 7 million cars based on the PPE platform by 2030, Duesmann said.
The MEB architecture could be used for a small-segment EV for Audi, VW, Skoda that would be built by VW Group's Seat unit in Spain.
Audi's current full-electric cars are the e-tron, e-tron Sportback and e-tron GT. The e-tron and e-tron Sportback are based on Audi's MLB Evo platform while the e-tron GT shares its J1 platform with the Porsche Taycan.
