German automaker Audi AG has plans to introduce more new energy vehicles into the Chinese market, in an effort to battle for a lead in the growing popular segment.

Audi said on Monday it will add five locally-produced Audi e-tron models to its China portfolio within five years, including pure battery vehicles with a range of more than 500 kilometers.

"Our e-tron offensive lays down a strong marker for the future," said Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG.

By 2025, Audi, with FAW-Volkswagen, will offer at least one locally-produced electrically powered SUV and sedan model in all volume segments and then there will be an e-tron model in each of the six biggest segments.

The electrification of production in China has already begun with the Audi A6 L e-tron. The first locally-manufactured plug-in hybrid will be delivered to dealerships before the end of 2016, said Audi.

Audi said it will strengthen its cooperation with the production and development departments of FAW-Volkswagen in electric mobility, building up key competencies for future technologies in the joint venture.

Audi and FAW also plan to set up a joint company focusing on mobility and digital services.
