By integrating the classic version and the Sportback coupe, Audi sold nearly 50,000 units of its e-tron badged electric SUVs during the year 2020. A significant increase compared to the first figures announced in 2020 which allows the German SUV to move ahead its Californian competitor.
In a press release announcing the figures for its electric sales in 2020, the brand is pleased to be “By far the largest manufacturer of electric cars among the three German premium brands”. Mercedes EQC sales were disappointing early in the year and have not taken off, and the BMW i3 is aging, making the Audi SUV the best-selling ‘zero-emission’ model among these. three builders. The German SUV also does better than the Tesla Model X. If the Californian brand no longer gives details of sales of each model, the 57,000 Model S / X delivered in 2020 leave little doubt as to the victory of the SUV German over its American rival.
These are precisely 47,324 Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback that were sold worldwide by the firm to the rings in 2020. This represents an increase of 79.5% for both models compared to the year 2019.
Despite a timid launch, the e-tron has corrected things well and Audi has much to celebrate with its electric boom, since 2021 will see the arrival on the market of the Q4 e-tron, another electric SUV, but above all of the Audi e-tron GT, cousin of the Porsche Taycan, and heralded as a new Tesla Model S killer.
