A leaked slide from a product presentation shows that Volkswagen is planning to launch eight electrified vehicles in China. There will be two each based on the MQB platform, Audi’s MLB platform, the all electric MEB platform, and two more released as a joint venture with one of VW’s Chinese partners, JAC.
The automaker, according to the slide, is planning on releasing the e-Golf and the Tiguan PHEV. They will be joined by the Phideon PHEV, the China-only full size, luxury sedan. And finally, the I.D., based on Volkswagen’s all-electric MEB platform.
Meanwhile, Audi will release the A6L e-tron, a plug-in hybrid, and the all electric E-tron, Audi’s EV crossover, based on the E-tron Quattro Concept.
Finally, there will be a compact SUV and a small sedan from JAC-Volkswagen, a joint venture whose intent is to make affordable electric cars. The joint venture’s name is expected to be revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show in April, with the brand selling its first vehicles in 2018.
Meanwhile, back home, Volkswagen is planning to release three more I.D. concepts in the near future.
“We’ll introduce you to two or three more ideas on the platform in the months to come to show the spectrum, and we’ll lay our cards very soon on what we can do,” Jurgen Stackmann, head of sales and marketing for VW, told Auto Express
