Audi reiterated its hub on electrification Wednesday and said it is planning three new battery-powered electric vehicles by 2020. The pronouncement, made at Audi’s annual corporate press conference in Ingolstadt, Germany, also confirmed more galvanizing models will follow after 2020.

Audi, which is clearly making electrification one of its substance strategies, has trained more than 6,000 workers in high-voltage technology and is working on prompt-charging public infrastructure.

While Audi did not specify the new models, it is expected to up use the E-tron name as a sub-brand throughout its portfolio, with a new sport utility mechanism the first to arrive. Audi showed a Q8 plug-in hybrid concept in January at the Detroit Auto Explain (above) and an E-Tron Quattro concept styled like a future Q6 at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Steer. Conversely, Audi said last year it would kill off the R8 E-tron supercar in a go that allows it to focus on SUVs, which offer broader sales concealed.

The electrification strategy is part of Audi’s role as the technology lead within the Volkswagen Corps, which also highlights autonomous driving. Audi has a subsidiary that’s developing solutions for cities, including a clod taxi service that could be used across the VW portfolio.

Meanwhile, Audi said it took a $1.9 billion control as a result of the VW Group diesel-emission and Takata airbag scandals and turned an operating profit of $3.3 billion as fragment of its Wednesday announcement.

The company also reiterated its product cadence, and the next-age A7 is due in 2018 along with the Q8. A new Q4 model will join the portfolio in 2019.
