Amongst the first to fully commit to the landmark Paris Climate Agreement, Audi has set the ambitious goal of reducing vehicle-specific CO2 emissions by at least 30 percent by 2025. This Audi emissions reduction is just one step toward the automaker’s long-term goal of achieving CO2-neutral mobility, but the effort to begin reducing vehicle emissions immediately demonstrates the automaker’s dedication to taking action right away to fulfill a promise of cleaner cars for drivers and the planet.
In their effort to reduce CO2 emissions, Audi is focusing on the electric car, which has the lowest environmental impact compared to all other drive systems. Already, the Audi e-tron is available at dealerships. A sporty SUV with a full electric drive system, the e-tron is Audi’s first available electric vehicle and proof that electric driving and sporty performance really do go hand-in-hand.
By the end of the year, the brand also plans to roll out the Audi e-tron Sportback. This electric car will closely resemble the advanced Audi A5 and will further expand options available for drivers interested in Audi quality who also want to transition to a full electric drive system.
Audi isn’t only reducing emissions by producing electric cars, though. The automaker is also reducing carbon output in the supply chain, using regenerative energy in production and making greater use of recycled materials throughout the entire process of creating new vehicles.
