Audi all-electric car sales consistently increase

In 2023, Audi sold more than 178,000 all-electric cars around the world (up 51% year-over-year). Its two most popular model families are the Q4 e-tron and Q8 e-tron, while in 2024, the company will launch an all-new Q6 e-tron model.

In Q4, Audi sold roughly 55,400 all-electric cars, which is a 34% increase year-over-year and a record 10.9% share in the brand's total volume.

The main electric model in the company's lineup is the MEB-based Audi Q4 e-tron (including the Sportback version), which is a direct cousin of the Volkswagen ID.4 (and ID.5).

Unfortunately, Audi does not provide sales results for plug-in hybrid models.

Audi's electrification has progressed quite linearly for a few years now:

In the first quarter of 2024, Audi intends to present its all-new Audi Q6 e-tron model, which will join the Q4 and Q8 e-trons. The Q6 e-tron will be the first model based on the Volkswagen Group's new Premium Platform Electric (PPE) system developed specifically for electric models.

According to previous reports, starting in 2026, the German brand will only introduce all-electric cars to the global market.
