Fully Electric Audi A8 Under Consideration For Next Generation
The model doesn’t have the green light yet, but Audi wants to introduce a “new concept for the A8.”
Audi recently presented its Annual General Meeting where the company’s top execs outlined the company’s financial results and plans for the future. During his portion of the discussion, Audi AG Chairman of the Board of Management Bram Schot announced the company’s intention to build a fully electric version of the next-gen Audi A8.
Audi’s Electric Future:
“The next generation of the Audi A8 might well be all-electric. That has not been decided yet, but I can well imagine it,” Schott said. “We are thinking about revolutionizing the top-end class with a completely new concept for the A8.”
The current generation of the Audi A8 (gallery below) just debuted in the 2018 model year. The model’s recentness suggests that the next-gen sedan is quite a few years away, so Audi has quite a while to decide whether to give this luxurious EV a green light for production.
