Volkswagen Group apparently has some grand plug-in electric vehicle plans for its Audi brand...in China.

VW will reportedly strengthen its ties with China's FAW Group to bring more plug-ins to the Chinese market.

Reuters reports:

"Audi and FAW have agreed to produce five more electric cars in China over the next five years, the German company said. Audi also plans to build the A6 L e-tron plug-in hybrid in China this year and import the Q7 e-tron model to the country."

The only plug-in Audi on sale now in China is the A3 e-tron, which is imported into the nation, and thus suffers from high taxation.

Audi says that its future plug-ins to be sold in China will include BEVs with range of over 500 km.

Here's a crude look at the roadmap for VW-Audi-FAW-JAC (another Chinese joint venture partner) plug-ins coming to the Chinese market..
