Audi recently concluded its annual press conference in Ingolstadt just a few days ago, where it laid out some of its plans for 2018 and beyond. According to Rupert Stadler, chairman of the board of management of Audi, the carmaker will “continue the biggest model initiative in its history in 2018,” which was kickstarted by the debut of the all-new A8 and A7 Sportback.

This year already saw the reveal of the latest A6, which features the brand’s 48 V mild hybrid technology like its other four-door siblings. Later in the year, the A6 Sedan will be joined by Avant and allroad quattro version later in the year. In other sedan-related news, the A8 line-up will be expanded to include e-tron plug-in hybrid and W12-powered variants.

Next up is the Q8, a model that was first previewed by the similarly-named concept near the start of 2017 (and the Q8 sport concept later one). The big SUV has already been sighted in prototype form on numerous occasions, and will celebrate its global premiere in Shanghai in June this year.

The second-generation Q3 was also mentioned, which will replace the current model that first entered production in 2011. The carmaker says the compact SUV is one of its growth drivers especially in markets like China and America, and expects the new one to replicate the success.

Other models in the pipeline, which may or may not be launched in 2018, include the SQ2, a high-performance version of the Q2. For the Chinese market, the Q2 and Q5 will both be offered as long-wheelbase versions. It’s clear Audi is going big with SUVs, as it wants every other Audi delivered to a customer to be an SUV by 2025.

To attract younger customers, there will be a new generation for the A1, the brand’s supermini model that first broke cover in 2010. As with other upcoming Audi models, there have been numerous sightings of the new A1, which is said to ride on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform (shared with the Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo).

Electrification will also be a major focus for Audi, and aside from the above-mentioned A8 e-tron, the carmaker will also introduce the plug-in hybrid Q5 e-tron. Lest we forget, Audi’s first production car with fully electric drive, previewed by e-tron SUV prototypes, will debut later in August. “The first five electric cars from our brand will include two sports utility vehicles and two sports activity vehicles,” said Peter Mertens, member of the board of management of Audi AG.
