Audi to stop thermal models after 2026

In 2026, the ring mark Audi should stop rolling out new thermal models according to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.

Audi wants to take a decisive turn by 2026. According to the German newspaper Southgerman newspaper, the brand will stop launching new models with thermal or hybrid engines within 5 years to focus on fully electric vehicles.

The latest thermal model for 2026

The information was passed on to the newspaper by sources from the German automaker. According to the latter, Audi will therefore present its last car equipped with a combustion engine by 2026, according to the plans of its managing director Markus Duesmann.

The newspaper specifies that the 100% electric models will be the only ones to be marketed “at the latest by 2030”, and this, even in China.

To compensate and cushion the loss of jobs following the abandonment of the development of vehicles with thermal engines, the brand plans to invest nearly half a billion euros, according to the newspaper Southgerman newspaper


As a reminder, Audi is part of the Volkswagen automotive group, which is already very committed to 100% electric cars. With its “Way to Zero” plan, the group has displayed its ambitions in favor of a more responsible industry and wishes to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

A wide electric range

This idea is part of a increasingly marked electrification context from the builder to the rings.

Since 2019, Audi has developed for the first time a range of 100% electric vehicles with the release of thee-tron Quattro, a real fully electric SUV of the brand.

The following year, another completely exclusive vehicle appeared in the range of the German manufacturer, the‘Audi e-tron GT : a top-of-the-range sedan with a sporty character, offered from € 100,000 excluding bonuses.
