VW Will Phase Out Internal Combustion Engines After The Next-Generation

VW Will Phase Out Internal Combustion Engines After The Next-Generation”

"The year 2026 will be the last product start on a combustion engine platform", Jost reportedly said.

"Our colleagues are working on the last platform for vehicles that aren't Carbon dioxide neutral", Michael Jost, the Volkswagen brand's head of strategy, told Bloomberg.

With an electrification strategy firmly in place for the group's stable of auto brands, VW is now ready to embrace the end of ICE age and is planning the last rollout of ICE platform cars in eight year's time.

The first model of the full-electric range to be produced is the I.D. hatchback, with production set to begin in 12 months in Germany. By 2030, VW says it will offer hybrid or electric versions of its entire 300-plus-vehicle lineup.

Volkswagen hasn't been shy about its electric vehicle ambitions and this will reportedly mean the demise of the internal combustion engine.

While there will be no new development of petrol or diesel engines from 2026, it's highly likely that petrol and diesel will remain in Volkswagen's line-up into the 2030s, especially in developing countries where the infrastructure doesn't exist for charging electric vehicles.

The German manufacturer is "fully committed" to the goals outlined in the Paris climate accord, which calls for accelerating the rollout of vehicles that lower or eliminate harmful emissions, he said at an industry conference organized by the Handelsblatt business newspaper.

Based on Volkswagen's typical seven-year model cycles, the last newly-developed petrol and diesel engines will be made available on the mk9 Golf, which will be due for launch around 2026.

This decision will possibly cover the firm's mass-market brands like VW, Skoda, Audi and Seat.
