Electric and digital: Audi sketches its technological future: Page 2 of 2

December 04, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
The car manufacturer Audi wants to accelerate its reorientation towards promising technologies. The company presented a plan to invest around €14 billion by 2023. In the medium term, group-wide drive architectures are to ensure economies of scale.

According to the plan presented, the share of funds for future topics in total expenditure should increase significantly over the course of the planning period. One reason for this is the decision to scale electromobility in the second half of the planning horizon on the basis of cross-brand architectures with high Group synergies. To this end, Audi is working with Porsche to develop the premium electrification architecture (PPE) for large electric cars; the modular electric drive system (MEB) is being developed together with Volkswagen.
