Audi will begin building vehicles in Mexico starting in 2016, starting with the second generation of the Q5 crossover that competes with the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLK.
A Q3 compact crossover will come to the United States in late 2013 or early 2014 and an A3 sedan designed mainly for the United States will debut in 2014. The four-door will help Audi compete with BMW's 1 series and a new range of front-wheel-drive vehicles from Mercedes-Benz.
Audi will launch its e-tron electric subbrand this year or in early 2013 with an electric version of the R8 sports car.
A2: The A2 electric vehicle shown as a concept at last year's Frankfurt auto show still hasn't been approved. There are reports that Audi is concerned about high development costs.
A3: A new sedan built on a Volkswagen Group modular platform will go on sale in 2014. The sedan has been designed mainly for the United States and will be larger and roomier than the current A3 hatchback. The hatchback version of the redesigned vehicle will not be sold in the United States. A plug-in hybrid A3 is expected in 2014.
A4/S4: The A4 sedan and its performance S4 stablemate will be redesigned on the new VW Group platform in 2014.
The Avant station wagon was replaced this summer with the Allroad, a more expensive all-wheel-drive wagon with a higher ground clearance, steel underbody skid plates, a tweaked suspension and mild changes to front and rear styling.
A5/S5: The coupe, convertible and S5 performance version will be redesigned in 2015. The hand-built RS5 performance version went on sale this summer with a 4.2-liter V-8 that generates 450 hp, special brakes, a stiffer suspension and sporty body trim.
