The largest car market for Audi was named as China after last year’s exploits. Audi have also been long established as China’s number one luxury car seller. Considering that the German car giants were expected to make a huge impact at the Beijing Motor Show. They did not let anyone down in in that respect.
Best first quarter in history
Peter Schwarzenbauer, the Head of the Audi Board said that “Audi began 2012 with the best-performing quarter in its history. In China, the invincible cooperation between Audi and its strong partner FAW has created sustainable leadership for 24 consecutive years.
The Audi Q3 + 2 others
The Audi Q3 made its worldwide debut last year and has not looked back ever since. It is now one of the best selling and most desirable compact sports utility vehicles in the world. The Audi Q3 had a spectacular impact at the Beijing Motor Show. This special edition was introduced as the Audi Q3 Jinlong Yufeng. Alongside that was the Audi A6L e-tron Concept as well as the Audi RS Q3 Concept.
Mr Schwarzenbauer continued to say “The Audi Q3 made its world premiere in Shanghai last year and now we are making a point of world-premiering the Q3 Jinlong Yufeng and RS Q3 Concept in Beijing,”
The Audi A6L e-tron concept
This was showcased as a vehicle that is designed to be especially catered for the Chinese car market. The Audi A6L e-tron has been deemed as a very important model for the future. It contains a number of technologies which are beneficial to the Chinese market. This includes the hybrid technology of the car which ultimately allows the car to drive on electric power for 80 km without giving out any emissions. Audi Ultra, the future of providing lightweight exterior for Audi vehicles means that the car’s exterior is very strong but is ultimately extremely light. This will allow better fuel efficiency.
The satellite navigation system is cleverly able to recognise Chinese handwriting. The infotainment system is overall one of the highlights of the car and perhaps the whole show in terms of car technology.
According to Zhang Xiaojun, Audi are committed to provide the very best in new car technology and car designs to the Chinese car market. The Beijing Motor Show pays testament to that statement.
