Get set for a range of exciting new models loaded with industry-leading technology and stunning aesthetics from Audi. Taking pole-position are three battery-electric models launching by 2020. More immediately, look out for the next generation Audi Q8 and Q4 SUVs, and the piloted-driving capable Audi A8 next year. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

These developments were revealed recently as part of a strategic plan that sets the course for Audi to deliver innovative cars that are geared for the future and exciting to drive, without losing any of the design-aesthetic that discerning drivers around the world expect from Audi.

At the heart of the company's mission to change driving as you know it is the newly-founded subsidiary, Autonomous Intelligent Driving GmbH in Munich. Set up to accelerate technology for self-driving cars, the new outfit will collaborate with other equally innovative automotive and IT partners. It is already testing a system for autonomous vehicles, which will be a key component for future tech-driven services such as robot taxis. The technology is streets ahead of the rest and will eventually be made available to other car brands. Expect it to be a part of your everyday in the conceivable future.

At the same time, Audi is further developing assisted and piloted systems for other traffic situations, such as on highways or country roads. In the new Audi A8 launching next year, customers will for the first time be able to use automated-driving functions in traffic jams at speeds up to 60 km/h.

Another development on the innovation front is the launch of three battery-electric models by the year 2020 and to electrify additional model series after that. Underscoring its commitment to innovation, Audi has already trained more than 6,000 employees to work with high-voltage technology.

Giving drivers a taste of things to come will be the stunning new additions to the Audi portfolio in the immediate future.

This year will see the launch of new generations of important volume models such as the Q5 and A5. Bolstering the brand's presence around the world will be the Audi Q2, which will become available in additional international markets.

Audi is also set to strengthen its top-end lineup with the second generation of the Audi A7 in 2018. In the same year, the Audi Q8 will join the SUV family. Another new model is planned for 2019: The Audi Q4, a sporty compact utility vehicle.

This is Vorsprung durch Technik.
