Audi is working on a new A4 family. According to insiders from Ingolstadt, the main models will be two RS-versions: a hybrid and an all-electric installation. Sales will be carried out in parallel with the main representatives of the family, equipped with gasoline and diesel engines with electronic “appendages”, adapted to the Euro-7 standard.
The new Audi RS4 Avant will remain based on the MLB modular chassis and will receive a plug-in power plant, which will include a 2.6-liter “six” with twin turbocharging, as well as an electric motor, which will be powered by a battery with a capacity of 14 , 4 kW / h. The battery will provide 100 kilometers of travel on the WLTP cycle. It is not yet known what kind of return the power plant will have, but it will clearly be higher than that of the current model, which is designed for 450 forces.
In addition, Audi is developing an electric modification of the A4 e-tron. The sports car will be built on the modular Premium Platform Electric, which will be shared with the next-generation Macan and the upcoming Audi Q6 e-tron.
The A4 e-tron electric vehicle will be available in versions. The first will have one rear-wheel drive power unit, and the second will have a twin-engine unit and all-wheel drive. The leading position in the lineup will be occupied by the RS version from Audi Sport, which will be equipped with 2 electric motors, one on each axle. Their total power will be over 470 horsepower.
