Audi to offer electric cars within 10 years

Audi is looking to offer electric cars with no exhaust emissions within ten years. In interview with Welt am Sonntag, a German weekly, Aud’s boss Rupert Stadler said that he expects diesel and battery technology to dominate the coming five to ten years in automotive industry.

“By then we will offer cars without exhaust emissions,” Stadler said. “Electric cars offer great opportunities, which we have already seized on.”

Audi recently announced that it is working on its own version of a program similar to BMW Efficient dynamics. The company is working on its own ways to reduce weight, start-stop technologies and other ideas such as closing flaps on the grille.

It will be at least two years before Audi puts those practices into production.
