VW Says Its Next-Gen Gasoline Engines Will Be Its Last

VW's Next Generation Of Combustion Engines Will Be Its Last VW Will Phase Out Internal Combustion Engines After The Next-Generation

Traditional automakers are under increasing pressure from regulators to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions to combat climate change, prompting Volkswagen to pursue a radical shift to electric vehicles.

Jost also predicted that the last vehicle with a combustion engine would be sold around 2040, which is when the United Kingdom is set to introduce a ban on the sale on new petrol and diesel cars.

It's my deal, no deal or no Brexit: Theresa May
It was the first time in British parliamentary history the government has been found in contempt by MPs. Not about delaying it, I'm listening to colleagues' concerns around the backstop".

"In the year 2026 will be the last product start on a combustion engine platform."
With that, VW has begun introducing its first wave of electric cars (the I.D. range), including the Porsche Taycan, which is set to debut next year.

Jost pointed to recent strategic decisions by Volkswagen as being fully in line with the plans to migrate to electric vehicles. Other I.D. models like the Crozz and Vizzion flagship will follow - it's unclear where the duo will be assembled, but reports suggest that other I.D. models will be built at the firm's facilities in China by 2020.

A key goal is to improve margins at its mass-market VW brand, which is its largest division by sales but which has long lagged the profitability of rivals such as Japan's Toyota due in part to high labor costs at its German plants.

The new petrol and diesel units are slated to arrive in 2026 and they will mark the end of an era for Volkswagen. By 2030, VW says it will offer hybrid or electric versions of its entire 300-plus-vehicle lineup. "Yes, we have a clear responsibility here", Jost said.

Australian scientists are testing a fast universal test for cancer
The scientists looked at epigenetic patterns in cancer cell genomes and in healthy cells, looking specifically for methyl groups . But considering the results, he noted it could be helpful in detecting cancer easily, rather than conducting invasive procedures.

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.
