Audi’s plan to go completely electric by 2033 has been met with some skepticism. But the company has some strong reasons for its optimism, and it also has a history of being on top of the cutting-edge in transportation technology.
All the cars from Audi will be electric by 2033
Audi India, which sells cars in the country under the Audi brand, has decided to make all its models electric by that time. This is part of a larger goal for the company: to be carbon neutral by 2030 (a goal they’re on track to meet).
Achieving a carbon neutral balance will take longer
Audi is planning on going completely electric by 2033, but it’s not just any electric car. The automaker is making an effort to achieve a carbon neutral balance with its fleet of cars and SUVs in less than 10 years. Audi says that achieving this goal will take longer than originally planned because of slower growth in the market for electric vehicles (EVs). It currently predicts that if all models were sold at current rates, it would be able to hit its target by 2025 but there’s no guarantee that people will buy more EVs as time goes on.
In order for Audi to make up lost ground, they’ve decided they need some help from their competitors: Mercedes-Benz has already announced plans to introduce all-electric SUVs by 2022 and BMW has said it wants 30% more efficiency out of its hybrid vehicles over five years’ time (starting next year). If companies like these start moving quickly toward cleaner cars, we could see more models hitting dealerships before 2038 rolls around!
By 2025, the company aims to have at least one fully electric model in every segment
Audi is a German automaker that has been making cars since 1958, but it hasn’t always been exactly what you’d call a leader in the electric car market. In fact, as far back as 2011 when it first announced its plans to build an all-electric SUV called the Audi E-Tron Quattro Sportback (or Q5), Audi was behind schedule: by 2025 (when we’re now looking at), it’s planning to have 25 fully electric models on the road and even though this was before Tesla’s Model 3 had even made its debut on stage at Tesla’s 2016 reveal event, I’m sure some people would argue that this number still feels low for such an ambitious company. At any rate, now that we know how things are going with their electrification strategy and timeline, let’s check out some of their moves so far and maybe learn something new about them too!
The company is already behind schedule with 25 electrified models planned by 2025.
If you’re an Audi fan, it’s easy to take comfort in the fact that your car company is already behind schedule with 25 electrified models planned by 2025. Of course, this might not be enough for you if you want to buy an electric Audi SUV or another model from the brand. Unfortunately for enthusiasts of electric cars and renewable energy sources, Audi has been slow in introducing them into India as welland we can’t say we blame them! The company’s first electric vehicle was introduced in 2021 and came without much fanfare: a concept car called “E-Tron Quattro.” It had a range of up to 379 km on one charge at speeds up to 80 km/h(50 mph). But today’s technology allows us far greater mileage than ever before; some models have achieved more than 500 kilometers per charge!
How far will Audi go to reduce emissions?
Audi will go completely electric by 2033. Achieving a carbon neutral balance will take longer, but Audi is confident that it can be done within the next decade. By 2025, the company aims to have at least one fully electric model in every segment and 50% of its sales being electrified by 2025. This isn’t too far away considering that only two years ago they were only planning 25 models by 2030 (and now they’re already behind schedule).
Audi is a leader in the world of electrification and has been working hard to reduce its carbon footprint. With the launch of the e-tron SUV and battery-electric models, we can expect to see more of these newer technologies in upcoming years. However, what does this mean for current Audi customers? The brand has already shown that it cares about their customers’ needs by offering them many electric vehicles on the market today with plenty more coming soon!
