At a Climate Neutrality Foundation conference, Audi CEO Markus Duesmann said “Audi is ready to make its decisive and powerful move into the electric age.” Production of the brand’s final newly-developed combustion engine model will start in 2026. From that point onwards, they will only release new models powered purely by electric in its global line-up. As their electric vehicle range grows, internal combustion engines are being phased out and production of the final version will be in 2033. The manufacturer aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest.
“Through our strength, we offer individuals sustainable and carbon-neutral mobility options.” said Duesmann. “I don’t believe in the success of bans. I believe in the success of technology and innovation.”
This year, Audi is already launching more electric cars than models with combustion engines and they plan to continue growing their all-electric range. Audi hopes to have more than 20 electric vehicles in its line-up by 2025.
Duesmann went on to say: “With this roadmap, we are creating the clarity necessary to make a decisive and powerful transition to the electric age. We’re sending the signal that Audi is ready.”
