The brand with the four rings has a fairly full schedule for next year. Between restyling and novelty, here is Audi’s program for 2023!
For next year, the novelties Audi are already more or less known in advance. Apart from the new exclusives that will be presented during the year, here is what we know about 2023.
From the beginning of the year, two special editions of limited-edition sports cars will go on sale: theAudi TT RS Iconic Editionlimited to 100 copies and theAudi R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD, limited edition of 333 copies. In the same month of January, the fourth model in the Sphere series, theAudi ActiveSphere, will be presented. As a reminder, this is a concept of luxury sports crossovers, which joins the family of the three existing Audi Sphere concepts.
At the end of February, it will be the turn of the electric SUV to see a version Q8 e-tron to arrive. It will also be available in version Sportback as well as in SQ8 e-tron et SQ8 Sportback e-tron. Audi wants to present the Q6 e-tron and the Q6 Sportback e-tron in the second half of 2023. The middle-class electric crossover is based on the new electric platform PPE, developed in collaboration with Porsche, which works with 800-volt technology, allowing ultra-fast charging. A facelift of the Audi A6 (Avant) is also announced for 2023 and the presentation of a new Audi A4 Avant is in sight, but it should not be marketed before 2024. Finally, a pack Competition Edition and one pack Competition Edition Plus will be available from 2023 for the Audi A4, S4, A5 and S5.
The Audi Q8 e-tron will have its commercial launch by the end of February 2023. Audi is therefore abandoning the simple name “e-tron” to replace it with this one. For the moment, the model is thus placed at the very top of the brand’s SUV range, even if it does not replace, for the moment, the thermal Audi Q8.
Logically, the SUV coupé version becomes theAudi Q8 Sportback E-tron. The silhouette is slightly modified, aerodynamics too. Autonomy, up to 600 km according to WLTP, is also different.
In the SQ8 version, it has a more powerful propulsion with three motors. This version adopts a battery of 114 kWh which allows it to offer a range of 494 km. Its three electric motors develop a total of 503 horsepower and 973 Nm of torque.
Only 100 copies of the RS variant of the current Audi TT are planned in an ultra-limited version. This is the “Iconic Edition” version which will have only 10 owners in France. The 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo petrol engine still develops 400 hp. On the other hand, this version is dressed in the “Nardo gray” paint color specific to the RS.
The naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine sees its power increased to 620 hp. A new 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox allows for quicker gear changes and the new Torque Rear drive mode lets you choose your own level of ESC assistance. Worldwide, the new R8 is limited to 333 units and will be available from 2023.
The Q6 e-tron, a mid-range electric crossover, is based on the new platform electric “PPE” developed in collaboration with Porsche, which uses 800-volt technology. This power allows very fast recharge levels.
5 things to know about the Audi A6 Avant E-Tron, it is a family-type variant, the mass production of which is scheduled for 2024, which comes in addition to the A6 e-tron Sportback Concept, unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2021! pic.twitter.com/H8Idl86BQY

Besides the standard version, a Sportback variant with a flatter roof should also see the light of day. The Audi Q6 will arrive in the second half of 2023.
Next year, the restyled Audi A6 Avant should also see the light of day. This will in principle be equipped with electrified motors and will also be available in a plug-in hybrid version.
The next Audi A4 is also on the agenda for 2023. The sedan will receive four- and six-cylinder engines as well as hybrid drives. A version with quattro all-wheel drive will also be in the catalog!
The break version will probably arrive a little later in the year.
The fourth vehicle in the Sphere concept series from Ingolstadt is called Audi Activesphere and will be presented to the public in 2023.
For next year, Audi is expanding the individual equipment for the A4 and A5 as well as for the S4 and S5. The Competition Edition and Competition Edition Plus packs will therefore be in the catalog!
