VW Says Its Last Internal Combustion Engine Will be Launched In 2026. What Does This Mean For EVs?

For as long as we can remember, Volkswagen has been pushing the idea that it will very shortly become the world leader in electric vehicles.

But so far it’s had very little to show for it, save for some grand production plans, lots of concept cars, and future promises.

This week, Volkswagen announced it would develop its last internal combustion engine (and launch its last internal combustion engined vehicle) by 2026. This means that for the next eight years, the company promising an electric vehicle revolution will still be making internal combustion engined models.

So what does this mean for the future of Volkswagen’s EV plans? What does it mean for EVs in general? And how close is VW’s plans to those of other mainstream auto makers?
