has Already been fulfilled a year since the case of the scandal Volkswagen come to light and is still causing problems with the German giant; not only at the economic level, but also in the development of their products. In this case, the brand belonging to the Volkswagen Group affected is that of the four rings, Audi.

The multinational of Ingolstadt will have to to delay the plans of releases that I had expected, and is that a good number of engineers group working on end to carry out the necessary modifications to the engines affected by the dieselgate comply with the regulations, so that can’t focus fully on the development of new models.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, a source of internal mark would have declared that: “we are behind in the planning of the following models based on the modular platform MQB”. Two of the products of Audi which should be presented within a few years would be the fourth generation of the Audi A3 and the new crossover Audi Q4, however, these models will be delayed.

For its part, the new crossover Audi Q4, who would go on to create a new segment within Audi, with a style more colorful (in theory similar to the concept of the Audi Q2) and different to the majority of the models currently offered, would not be see until nothing more and nothing less that within five years, in 2021.

The company from Ingolstadt has not confirmed or refuted the statements of Auto Motor und Sport up to the moment, but, if so, could be a hard stick – for Audi. True, we get the doubt if the rest of the brands belonging to the Volkswagen Group will also have to be forced to delay part of the development of its future vehicles; even more so when the German giant is preparing a strong offensive products with electric and hybrid vehicles for the next few years.
