Audi A7 spied

The Audi A7 is a top-seller. This full-size luxury car has been in production since 2010, and it is only getting more popular and better, in every way. There have been a few face-lifts, naturally, but that doesn’t meant that it can’t get better. Audi always wants to improve, and the next generation Audi A7 should be a big improvement on this amazing car. There has been rumbling going on for a while, and fans of the A7 are getting excited.

There are some leaked photos of the car, but they are from far away, so it’ not easy to see what is going on with the new model. But, rest assured, the outside won’t look dramatically different as Audi is not big on changing near-perfection. It will retain its fastback design, and it will sport the new Audi singleframe grille. Also, sharper headlights are going to be part of the A7. It will also likely have a more muscular and streamlined look, but again, things are not going to change drastically. This should make any fan of the A7 happy as it is a well-designed and sporty car that certainly turns heads. A lot of the big changes that are expected will be under the hood.

The next-generation Audi A7 is going to be built on the MLB evo platform, which should make it that much better, and it is also going to be used in the next Audi A8.

By shedding weight, the A7 will enjoy better fuel economy, which should be good news to anyone looking at buying a car in the future. All in all, the 2018 Audi A7 model and future models will be faster, lighter, safer and get better gas mileage, all while retaining the great styling and comfort.

As far as engine options, we can expect similar options to the one’s available now. Foreign markets, as always, will likely get a diesel model, and there is some talk a new plug-in version with the new generation of Audi A7s. The supercharged 3.0 liter V6 engine and turbo V8 will be available in the new generation of the A7, which should make buyers happy as both engines are more than capable of providing the driver will a lot of fun and power. To see the power of many Audi cars and SUVs, test drive all your favorites at Audi of Tucson. Once behind the wheel of any Audi, you will start singing the praises too.

Audi is at it again. The company is always on the forefront of tech and innovation, and this time, Audi wants to make three electric vehicles by 2020. While this is a formidable goal since very few people own electric cars now, if any company can do it, Audi is the one. There is no doubt about it, electric cars are the future, and by having the goal of three cars by 2020, Audi is going to push itself, along with other manufacturers, to get something going, sooner rather than later.

Other luxury vehicle manufacturers are getting serious about it too, and that is probably one reason why Audi is getting a little more serious about electric vehicles. Rivals like BMW and Mercedes have similar plans to add both sedans and SUVs, and Audi will probably catch up, and maybe even surpass these two companies. Recently, CEO, Rupert Stadler, spoke with a German media firm and said that electric vehicles will account for between 25 and 30 percent of Audi’s sales by 2025. Audi also has other plans such as investing in autonomous driving tech and digital services.

To achieve the goal of having various electric cars, Audi will set up a subsidiary, called SDS company. And, as of now, Audi may work with other companies in the industry to help bolster their electric lineups. Besides having a few amazing electric cars, Audi also wants to take the autonomous vehicles to the next level. It will be more like a robot car that may not even need pedals nor a steering wheel, which is the next logical step. While the autonomous vehicles of the future, along with the three electric cars Audi plans to make, are a great step, it comes at a, slight, cost. Though it’s been talked about for a long time, the two-door A3 may get the ax, but things, naturally, can change. The company feels it would not lose customers, and most loyal Audi buyers would find something else that Audi makes, perhaps a better and newer version. If you are in the market for a new car, Audi is sure to provide what you are looking for, and you can find the best Audi cars and SUVs at Audi of Tucson.

Audi also has interest in fuel cell cars, but it is not a question of will or ability. It is a question of technology on the infrastructure end as there simply is not enough infrastructure to support fuel cell cars going coast to coast. Other than small pockets in major coastal cities, fuel cell drivers would have serious problems getting fuel. On the electric car front, many who love the Audi brand are hoping that the company will release something like the R8 e-tron, though nothing is set in stone as plans, ideas and the wants and needs of drivers are all constantly changing.

If you are a fan of what Audi has to offer, you should be pretty excited about the future. Not only will the company have autonomous vehicles, but within a few years, we will see multiple electric vehicles on the road. In the future, most Audi’s will be all-electric, and that includes cars and SUVs.
