• Audi has a fantastic range of fully electric and plug-in hybrid models.
• Our fully electric cars are called e-tron. Unlike petrol or diesel-powered engines, fully electric cars use electric motors powered by the electricity in their battery so you can drive C0₂ free. The battery can then be re-charged in a number of convenient ways.
• Our plug-in hybrid cars are called TFSI e, they use both a combustion engine and an electric motor. To recharge the electric battery, they are plugged into a power supply when stationary. Drivers can choose between three driving modes; purely electric, purely combustion, or an automatic combination of both. Audi has a growing range of plug-in hybrid models offering the economy of an electric motor, with the flexibility to switch to an Audi combustion engine.
• At Audi, we are living progress - we are committed to being a driving force for change. It's in our DNA, our mind-set and part of our 110-year history - ‘Vorsprung Durch Technik’.
• Our ambition is to shape the future of premium e-mobility by offering customers sustainable products and services. We take the issue of climate protection seriously. Reducing carbon dioxide emissions is an important step towards building a sustainable future. Electric mobility is by far the most efficient way to achieve decarbonisation and to meet our CO₂ fleet targets. We’re also investing €10 billion into the future of electric mobility by 2025.
• We started our journey with our first fully electric car (the Audi e-tron) built in the world's first CO₂ neutral factory in Brussels. Today we have a fantastic range of fully electric and plug-in hybrid models in our product range including the stunning e-tron GT and Q4 e-tron, with more joining our line-up. By 2025 we will have 30 new electrified models and all Audi plants are set to be carbon-neutral on balance1. From 2026, Audi will only launch new fully-electric models and by 2030 all of our new product line up will be electric.
• By 2050 we plan to not only have the strongest range of premium electric models in the industry but be carbon-neutral in balance as a company. On the way to achieving this target, every phase of a vehicle’s life cycle is being examined – not just with measures in the manufacturing stage, but also processes that have an effect earlier on, such as in the supply chain. At the heart of it all is a plan to protect the environment, conserve resources, reduce carbon emissions, and provide good working conditions.
