Daniel Weissland, the President of Audi of America, has said that the German automaker would be fully electric by 2033.
Weissland said Audi intends to have its last internal combustion-powered car roll off the assembly line by 2033.
Audi, which is owned by the Volkswagen Group (VWAGY), delivered a 5% year-over-year increase in American deliveries in 2021, topping 196,000 vehicles while also growing its EV sales by over 50%.
In 2022, Weissland said that Audi expects to have the “largest fully electric portfolio” of all U.S. manufacturers with the launches of the Q4 and the Q4 Sportback e-tron.
According to him, the company will continue to increase its EV sales as a proportion of its total vehicle deliveries, eventually leading to its sales of EVs surpassing that of internal combustion vehicles after 2025.
