Audi will completely abandon combustion engines in 2026. This is the end of an era – NeeWS

Audi plans to introduce as many as 20 electric cars to its offer over the next 5 years, all as part of a larger initiative by the Volkswagen group to which it belongs. At the same time, cars with internal combustion engines will slowly come out of the offer, so that from 2028 the concern’s offer only includes electric vehicles. According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the head of the concern Markus Duesmann also confirmed to the management that from 2026 they will no longer present any new petrol, diesel and hybrid models. Thus, the last model with an internal combustion engine that Audi will present is the Q model, which will most likely be an urban SUV – later drivers will have to use electrics.

This also means that the Audi A3 and A4 models will not have direct successors, but will instead have a complete design and name change. However, as the concern emphasizes, this should not be a greater surprise to anyone, because he has been openly saying for some time that the current engine models will still be improved and new ones will not be produced. We also remind you that Audi recently unveiled a new electric model, the Q4 e-tron crossover, which offers a range of between 321 and 520 kilometers and promises to be a very interesting proposition for fans of slightly larger city cars.

And in fact, such a move of the concern is not a surprise, because Audio, as part of the Volkswagen Group, sticks to the assumptions of the entire group, and this one made it clear. While it comes from the traditional car industry, it is one of the manufacturers most aggressive towards electrifying the industry and achieving carbon neutrality. He wants to do this, for example, with the ID.3 or ID.4 models, which are serious competition for the market currently dominated by Tesla – which, however, is worth emphasizing, he is not alone in this pursuit, because Ford presented a similar approach some time ago.

The company announced that all its passenger cars will be fully electric or hybrid by 2026, and furthermore, all consumer cars will be fully electric by 2030, making it one of the most ambitious electric car roadmaps we have seen so far on any European car manufacturer.
