Audi director Markus Dusman has prepared a plan according to which this brand will present the latest new model with a SUS engine in 2026, the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung reported. According to this report, Dusman presented this idea at a board meeting on June 17.
Such an acceleration of the electrification of the catalog would be in line with the broader ambitions of the parent company Volkswagen, which previously indicated that it will switch to electric vehicles in Europe from 2026.
Audi is rapidly expanding its range of electric models. After the launch of the E-tron in 2018, the premieres of the E-tron GT and Q4 T-tron followed, and the premieres of the A6 E-tron and Q5 E-tron are scheduled for 2022.
Almost every model in Audi’s passenger range is now also available with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
Audi is expected to continue selling models with petrol and diesel engines for a few more years after 2030 after the premiere mentioned in 2026 and an expected production life of seven years. It is not known yet which model will be the last to get SUS drive, but around that time the generation change for Q5 will follow.
Fiat recently announced that it will gradually phase out internal combustion engines from 2030, Jaguar plans to become an electric brand by 2025, and MINI will launch its latest model with an SUS engine that year.
