Audi Stops Diesel Car Sales In The Netherlands, The Beginning Of The End?

The TDI is history in Holland.

The manufacturer that brought us the R8 V12 TDI prototype and the torquey Q7 V12 TDI has stated that new diesel car sales in the Netherlands will be discontinued. The Four Rings will virtually eliminate all diesel vehicles from its local inventory on April 1, 2022, citing falling demand for the VW Group’s severely criticised oil-burner.

Future combustion-engined Dutch Audis will only be available with gasoline engines, some of which will work in conjunction with an electric motor in plug-in hybrids. The TFSI and TFSIe cars will be marketed alongside a rising number of electric vehicles, including the Q6 E-Tron, which will be released later this year. In the following years, an A6 E-Tron will be added to the lineup, along with a waggon that was just showcased.

Despite the fact that diesel Audis will no longer be sold in Holland and engineers have abandoned the development of fossil-fueled engines, a new and final generation of ICEs is on the way. The A4 (B10), which will be released in 2023, may be the first to have them in both gasoline and diesel versions. To state the obvious, these will be more electric than ever before, thanks to mild-hybrid and PHEV configurations.

Euro 7 standards are approaching, and the Ingolstadt-based automaker has taken preventive steps to improve the efficiency of its ICEs in order to avoid paying heavy fines for exceeding fleet emissions. The year 2025 will be remembered as the final time Audi introduced a new combustion-engined vehicle. The German premium manufacturer will stop selling conventionally fueled automobiles in 2033. China may be an exception, where the gasoline mill may continue to operate based on local demand.

Some gasoline engines are also on their way out, with the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 in the R8 unlikely to live to see another generation. It may survive as a replacement for the Lamborghini Huracan, but Audi has already confirmed that their next supercar will be totally electric.

The RS3, RS Q3, and TT RS are all powered by a 2.5-liter inline-five engine that is on borrowed time. The 400-horsepower hot hatch, on the other hand, was debuted less than a year ago, so it should be around for a while.
