Audi has announced its transition towards electric mobility at the Berlin Climate conference. In what is an interesting and exciting direction, the German automaker will phase out manufacturing of internal combustion engine models to the electric models from 2026 onwards. The car manufacturer had already been taking leaps towards the electric age by launching more electric cars overseas than the combustion engine models this year. However, with the launch of new all-electric models overseas, such as Q4 e-Tron, RS e-Tron GT and many more, the company is all set to start phasing towards the electric models.

According to the German automaker, the production of combustion engine cars will continue till 2033, with a gradual transition to e-mobility. Although the sale of internal combustion engine models will continue in China, the engines will be manufactured locally. In addition, the brand is aiming towards the reduction of emissions by expanding the range of electric models. The new European emissions regulations have also helped to provide the nudge towards the green future.

The brand will be continuing to invest and develop the internal combustion engine till its final continuation from production. The brand also expects the final internal combustion engine models to be having the best combustion engine they have built to date. In addition, Audi has expressed the need for infrastructure requirements for the electric age and has taken steps forward by working on projects like its own premium charging solution.

Audi has also planned to adopt the electric models for the Indian market as well. The automaker will be launching the electric models this year and in coming years as well, such as the Audi e-tron and the Audi e-tron GT. The CEO said,

“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”.

This clearly depicts that the German automaker, along with the other automakers, is leading the auto industry towards electric mobility.
