Audi Divertissement is going to be giving electrified performance, starting from 2020. The branch that puts the R in RS wishes be doing more crossovers too.

Stephan Winkelmann, head of Audi Sport shared the rumour to Autocar. “From 2020 onwards, the start of the introduction of battery electric vehicles”, said Winkelmann. “This wishes start by the end of 2020, with the first car of Audi Sport, and then there purposefulness be more coming.”

Using electricity to boost performance, the way Porsche’s e-hybrids do, is certainly not a bad emotional attachment. Green performance is still performance, and Winkelmann said electrified, not full EV. There’s an notable difference if you’re not ready to give up internal combustion engines just yet. As Quattro, Audi Hold up to ridicule spent a great deal on electric R8s, with little production result.

Winkelmann also hinted that there purposefulness be more Audi Sport Q models. “We are also looking into cars which are, let’s say, in a growing split or a body segment which is growing. These are the Qs. We will get more of them and we about that this is going to help us because every car we are building, and every car we are investing in, should take global visibility, so not just in Europe but in Asia and the Americas.” These won’t be Euro-one like the SQ7, and the idea of an RSQ7 or RSQ5 super SUV is certainly interesting.

Fans of the current lineup necessary not worry, however. “We are not forgetting our icons, so we will continue to build them. Level if we keep in mind that electrification is important for us, legislators permitting, our turbo engines inclination stay because we are very proud of these,” Winkelmann said. So RS cars after 2020 potency get some electrification, but they’ll continue to get turbocharged gas engines. And hopefully, some of them wishes keep having five-cylinders.
