The German brand Audi will progressively reduce its production of internal combustion vehicles to 2033, so since 2026 will only launch models 100% electric.
This was announced Markus Duesmann, the CEO of the Ingolstadt company, who has indicated that as part of its strategic restructuring, the company is accelerating its transition to zero-emission mobility.
“I don't believe in the success of the bans. I believe in the success of technology and innovation ”, The manager indicated, after which he added that the exact moment in which combustion engines will stop being sold will be decided by customers and the legislation, so he hopes that in China there will still be demand for these cars after 2033. From this way, recognize that there could be a supply of cars made there with these mechanics.
Therefore, Audi will expand its range of electric cars. By 2025 it expects to have more than 20 models. “With this roadmap we are creating the clarity needed to make a decisive and powerful transition into the electric age. We are sending the signal that Audi is ready ”Duesmann added.
For the company, the expansion of a generalized charging infrastructure and renewable energy sources is also "crucial" for increasing electric mobility and acceptance by society. For this reason, Audi participates in different initiatives related to both topics.
In addition, the firm with the four rings also continues to invest in the development of more efficient combustion engines. "Audi's latest internal combustion engine will be the best we've ever built", Duesmann sentenced.
