The second generation Audi A1 was unveiled in 2018, and it will be last of its kind as the carmaker shifts to EVs.
Markus Duessmann has told Automotive News Europe “we won’t have a successor to the A1” because the upcoming Euro 7 emission standards will make it too hard to offer “combustion engines in the smaller segments” as “the costs will go up”.
A few months ago Audi announced it will introduce its last all new ICE range in 2025, with the company planning to be all EV (outside of China) by 2023.
The first generation Audi A1 was on sale between 2010 and 2018, so it’s likely the current car will stay in production until around 2026.
