For Better or Worse, 2026 Marks the End of the Audi Brand as we Know It

Audi is making its move, and it could end up being a front-runner in full-scale electrification

As far as electrification goes, the specifics of Audi’s future was a bit of a mystery

We knew the company would occasionally release new EVs, like the E-Tron GT you see here

And the more recent Q4 E-tron

But beyond what we expect from the A6 E-Tron, there was a lot of uncertainty

Now, however, a new report from Reuters tells us that Audi’s electrification plans have been accelerated

Now, Audi’s last fuel-powered model will launch in 2026, with everything coming after that being all-electric.

Any fuel-powered model on sale at that point will continue to be sold until their natural life cycle concludes

By 2030, Audi should be selling EVs only, with the next-gen Audi A3 likely being the very last new model to be powered by fuel.

It should be noted that this report was originally published by the German new outlet Süddeutsche Zeitung and cites company insiders

There’s no word on when an official announcement will be made.

So, if you’re a fan of Audi’s 2.5-liter inline-five or the 5.2-liter V-10, now is the time to start looking at a new car
