Audi has handed over fully-electric models to players and officials of FC Bayern Basketball team, who are now driving the e-tron, Q4 e-tron and Q5 TFSI e models as company cars. Players and coaches of the team took delivery of their new cars at the Audi Dome in Munich, Germany.
The team’s players will be driving the Audi e-tron or Audi Q4 e-tron in the 2020/21 season.
FC Bayern Basketball Managing Director Marko Pešić and Head Coach Andrea Trinchieri are now also driving the plug-in hybrid Audi Q5 TFSI e.
The Audi brand has been a vehicle partner of the five-time German champion since 2011.
Since then, Audi has also held the naming rights to the venue, the Audi Dome.
Bayern captain, Nihad Djedovic, says: “The new vehicles from Audi are incredibly dynamic and great fun to drive.”
Hubert Link, Audi’s Head of Marketing for Germany, and Fabian Fischer, adds: “The consistent electrification of the fleet and the Audi Dome is the next step in our successful partnership with FC Bayern Basketball. Together, we will continue to create attractive experiences for players, coaches and fans in the future – also off the court.”
Fabian Fischer, Chief Business Officer FC Bayern Basketball, thanked Principal Partner Audi, saying, “We believe that our team being equipped with fully electric models from Audi for the first time is a great sign in these times, when sustainability really must be a core goal for all of us.”
Alongside Principal Partner Audi, Munich-based retail, logistics and services group BayWa is the main sponsor of FC Bayern Basketball.
Together with the team, the two partners put the new charging infrastructure at the Audi Dome into operation, which includes four AC wall boxes each with two charging points at the VIP parking spaces and a total of ten AC wall boxes each with two charging points each at the players’ parking spaces.
An additional fast-charging station with two charging points at the VIP parking spaces will follow in mid-November.
