Audi To No Longer Develop Internal Combustion Engines

The situation will likely bring an end to some lower-volume Audi models such as the A1 and TT


  • The stricter Euro 7 emission standards leave little room for the ICE.

  • Audi had already announced that they will launch 20 EVs over a five-year period.


The Volkswagen Auto Group has not been shy about its EV aspirations over the last few years. With Audi announcing that the current crop of internal combustion engines will be its last is not surprising.

Audi has also been vocal about its EV plans namely with its Artemis project where it plainly said that it wants to lead the Group in EV development and technologies. In fact, it expects to go full-electric by 2035. As well, it’s been reported that the A4, A6, and A8 should see electric versions added to their rosters only to take over the entire lineups by the end of the decade.

Audi boss Markus Duesmann said, as reported by Automobilewoche: “The EU plans for an even stricter Euro 7 emissions standard are a huge technical challenge and at the same time have little benefit for the environment. That extremely restricts the combustion engine,” said Duesmann. “We will no longer develop a new internal combustion engine, but will adapt our existing internal combustion engines to new emission guidelines.”
