VW Group confirms six all-new models for 2019

The VW Group has officially confirmed six new models, including the Porsche Cayenne Coupe, at its 2018 Annual Conference in Wolfsburg. 

As well as the Cayenne Coupe, all-new models include the Audi Q3 Sportback and an unnamed B-segment SUV.

A replacement for the current Bentley Flying Spur, as previously reported by Autocar, is also due. The final two models, the Bora and Lavida, which are already sold in China, will have fully electric variants launched this year solely for the Chinese market.

The cars appeared briefly on screen during the company’s financial presentation. 

VW also revealed that there will be a second wave” of as many as 15 individual new MEB-based electric cars as part of its aim to get to 22 million BEV sales by 2025. 

The company also showed predictions that, by 2040, 70% of the European new-car market will made up of Battery Electric Vehicle sales and about 10-20% plug-in electric vehicles, though these will be powered by fuels made from renewable electricity.

By the same time China’s market should be 85% BEV and around 10-15% fuel cell. The US market, however, may only be up to 60% BEV by 2040.
