Audi has one of the three best electric cars on the market.

The e-tron GT sets standards, also thanks to sibling help from Porsche.

This is all the more remarkable given that the Volkswagen Group appeared late at the techno party, as it often does, but it is now rocking.

Thanks to the large development budget, further progress is foreseeable. Of course, Volkswagen and all manufacturers will continue on this path.

But now the cracker follows, if you want to accept the tried image, the China cracker: While Audi was convinced some time ago that in China no vehicles with internal combustion engines will soon be allowed to drive into cities, things have changed now. quotes the specialist journal “auto, motor und sport”, Audi Board Member for Development, Oliver Hoffmann. "Today we see in our forecasts that in large markets such as China and the USA in 2030 around 50 percent of all new registrations will still be for vehicles with combustion engines," Hoffmann told the magazine. Therefore “we decided to further develop our combustion engines”.

With a view to the political decision-makers in Berlin and Brussels, he speaks of fears fueled by discussions about bans among customers and calls for the future European emissions standard Euro 7 to be designed in such a way that it can be achieved with modern combustion engines. From the VW group, which is putting everything on the electric map in public discourse, this is a considerable commitment to competition and openness to technology. Or just realism.
