Of the eight vehicles, four will be sold under the Volkswagen brand, two models in the Audi label, and another two under JAC-Volkswagen, which is the car maker's third joint venture in China.
Under the Volkswagen label, the e-Golf will carry the cheapest price tag. The electric derivative of the Volkswagen Golf with 134hp and 200 kilometer range is slated to hit the market later this year.
Volkswagen will also introduce the Tiguan PHEV and Phideon PHEV. Although both have the same hybrid systems, the latter will deliver some 245 horses compared with the former's 220 horses.
Included in the Volkswagen brand is the I.D. concept's production version. The I.D. is quite significant as it is not only the first car developed as an electric car but also the first one to be based on MEB platform. It will have an estimated 68 horsepower and 410 kilometer range.
On the other hand, the Audi will have two new additions on its label, namely, A6L e-tron and Q6 e-tron quattro. The former gets the same hybrid system as the Phideon PHEV and is based on the MLB platform, while the latter will receive a modified MLB platform variant and underpin the Tiguan L and Audi Q5.
Lastly, the new JAC-Volkswagen tandem will have two new cars under development - a compact SUV based on the JAC iEV6s and a small sedan that will likely be based on the JAC iEV5. Fortune noted that the new brand name will be announced in April during the Shanghai Auto Show.
