Volkswagen: the next generation of combustion engines will be the last

The Volkswagen Group’s electric strategy has been on everyone’s mind for the past few months, yet the Wolfsburg giant is still a major manufacturer of vehicles with internal combustion engines … for a few more years!

Michael Jost, Strategy Director at Volkswagen, said earlier this week at a conference during the Handelsblatt Automotive Summit: “Our colleagues are working on the last platform for vehicles that aren’t CO2 neutral”.

The automaker anticipates the next generation of engines (gasoline or diesel) scheduled for 2026 will be the last in the history of the brand, or even VAG.

In short, what emerges from this announcement is that the efforts of the manufacturer will be focused on electric vehicles from 2026. Volkswagen will still seek to make its internal combustion engines cleaner by this date identified as the beginning of the end for gasoline and diesel engines within the group.

Jost added that vehicles equipped with combustion engines could continue to exist after 2050, where electric charging infrastructure would be insufficient.

Remember that Volkswagen intends to assemble more than one million electric vehicles by 2025, thanks in particular to the small ID, the ID CROZZ crossover and the friendly ID BUZZ, but it is clear that other models will be added along on the way.
