The next generation Q8 will most likely be Audi's last combustion engine car
It will be sold until 2032
Audi has already stopped the development of new combustion engines for several months. By the end of 2026, the German brand will also stop production of new petrol, diesel and hybrid models in all its plants. This means that the last Audi with a combustion engine should be on the road in 2026.
All models unveiled until 2026 will be produced until the 2030s. After that date, Audi will officially become a fully electric carmaker. According to the German newspaper Handelsblatt, it is the future Q8 that will make history. It will be the very last Audi with a combustion engine.
The upcoming SUV will also have a Q8 e-tron version alongside it, which will allow it to gradually make the transition to all-electric. The combustion-powered Q8 will end its career in 2032 when its electric counterpart will continue into a third generation with the rest of the Audi range already fully electric.
