INGOLSTADT: Audi's e-tron sports utility vehicle (SUV) seems to have become an international best-seller.

With reference to the e-tron GT, the Q4 e-tron, and the Q4 Sportback e-tron, the German carmaker is now "electrified" to know what 2021 will hold.

In the first half of this year, the company managed to deliver 17,641 e-tron models internationally despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

This marks an 86.8% increase in sales compared to last year, allowing the company to declare that it is way ahead of its competitors in the full-size battery-electric vehicle SUV segment worldwide.

In Europe alone, it seems that the e-tron is being highly sought after - especially in the Scandinavian market.

Norway, the pioneering country when it comes to electric mobility, made the e-tron the top-selling passenger-car model in the first half of the year.

The e-tron makes up 92% of the volume of Audi models delivered in Norway.

It also makes up a significant portion of deliveries in Iceland (93%), Sweden (12%), and Israel (14%).

In the US, the e-tron has recorded an increase in sales by more than 50% as compared to the previous year.

“Our first fully electric SUV combines design, dynamic handling, and interior quality with the latest technology – for emissions-free driving without having to make compromises," said Audi member of the board of management (Sales and Marketing) Hildegard Wortmann.

He added that the e-tron is the beginning of a new era for the company and it will continue this success story.

next year, the brand with the four rings will be launching the e-tron GT.
