Audi wants to get out of gasoline and diesel engines at the latest in 2026. The development of new petrol and hybrid engines is set. However, the revised A8 will be given one last time with different drive options.
Audi is under pressure in the luxury segment. The new Mercedes S-Class has now arrived at the international markets and the BMW 7 Series will be replaced in the second half of 2022. There is a model maintenance for the Audi A8 not.In its current generation, the Audi A8 has set best brands in its segment, especially when it comes to processing quality and interior design. But the phlegma adheres to him that the high automated drive at level three promised at the market has not yet been made into the series. Unfortunately, this will certainly not change to the 2022 model care and so it remains with the currently available driver assistance functions of level two.
Audi A8 still cannot drive automatically
In general, the motting maintenance on the Audi A8, which is supposed to come at the end of the year, is pretty thin when you consider that Mercedes will roll out its current S-Class in its various engine variants and a new 7 Series BMW is just around the corner.
The Mercedes S-Class is now also available with several diesel versions, all-wheel drive and plug-in hybrids. In autumn, the AMG variant, which is already eagerly awaited in the USA, follows, as well as the AMG GT four-door, will also roll up as a particularly powerful plug-in variant. BMW will slowly start the first information from the upcoming new top model at the end of the year. For the first time, the luxury limousine from Dingolfing will be gradually available with gasoline and diesel engines from summer 2022, but also offered as a plug-in hybrid and electrical version.

Audi A8: Diesel and twelve -cylinder out, S8 away
Difficult times for the current Audi A8, which has little to counter the upcoming competition. Finally, two years ago, the powerful top diesel and the twelve -cylinder were removed from the engine portfolio and the sports version of the 571 hp Audi S8 should soon fall out of the program due to increasing exhaust gas regulations. Wait to see whether Audi has an answer to the new motor variants of Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7 Series. The Audi A8 currently has only a unique selling point. The long A8 with the powerful S8 engine is currently the only German luxury limousine that can be obtained from the factory as a strictly secured tank version. BMW had to delete its armored 7 Series in the current generation for planning errors and the new Mercedes S-Class is not yet a tank variant on the market for governments and KOnighausen.
Visually, the model maintenance of the A8 will only give slight retouching on the front and rear. Inside there are also only detailed improvements and customers can look forward to a plug-in hybrid variant with significantly more reach. Especially for the main market in China there should be an XXL variant that complements the two current models with normal and long wheelbase. Then the twelve-cylinder, which is over 630 hp, should probably get into conversation, because to compete with a six or eight-cylinder against the Maybach S-Class would probably be unsuccessful.
Next A8 only electrically
The next generation of the A8 then only comes as an electric car on a new battery platform. Combustion engines will no longer develop the Volkswagen Group and thus Audi at the latest in 2026, including plug-in hybrids. For other markets, such as the USA or China, which are not so in a hurry to switch to emobility, Audi will then have to do without part of its customers or buy modern petrol and hybrid engines from Asian manufacturers.
