Audi has been on a roll with releasing new models as of late. And to “bridge the gaps” between its current models, Audi will be introducing more models that may take the form of crossovers.
“There is no doubt…that crossovers are still selling like hotcakes even though the trend seems to be shifting toward more compact models,” said Audi chairman Rupert Stadler.
To account for Audi’s growth, 155,000 Q5s were sold globally last year next to 47,000 Q7s. And with new models such as the Q6, Q1 and Q4 possibly in the works, Audi will definitely step up their sales game if everything gets the green light.
Audi also wants to try and top the sales of the X6 by offering a more aesthetically pleasing competitor. Additionally, the Ingolstadt brand is thinking of introducing a seven seater large crossover. However, in the words of Mr. Stadler: “We looked at this segment long and hard. Right now, I am inclined to ignore it.”
