Much was made, recently, about America’s decision to return to the Paris Climate Agreement. It was a move made but President Biden’s new administration and many car manufacturers are pleased with the decision, Audi being one of them. While some have criticized Audi for praising the new administration’s return to the Paris Climate Agreement for being overly political, Audi has made it clear that it’s siding with a push for cleaner energy.
“This includes our goals of achieving net carbon neutrality by 2050 and expanding our electric vehicle portfolio here in the US to 30% percent by 2025. All of us at Audi are committed to creating a thrilling new era for electric mobility.” said Audi USA CMO Tara Rush in a recent interview.
In a recent Twitter and Facebook post, the Audi e-tron GT can be seen with a caption claiming that it was inspired by the Paris Climate Agreement.
Here’s to the art of moving forward.

Audi is trying to cement itself as one of the greener automakers in the world and has already begun a massive electric overhaul, with several new electric vehicles either already on sale or currently in the works. It also plans on switching from internal combustion to electrification almost exclusively quite soon. So it should be no surprise to anyone that Audi is publicly siding with the Paris Climate Agreement and the United States’ return to it.
So far, Audi has made impressive steps toward the electric future of the automobile and deserves credit for making more of a push toward that goal than many other automakers. The Audi e-tron GT debuts in a few weeks, February 9 to be exact, and we can’t wait to see it.
