During his time in office, Teufel agreed with President Boris Yeltsin on a series of economic and technical cooperation agreements with Russia, including a high-level joint commission to oversee several institutes in Russia where business administrators, agronomists and scientists will be trained, and also direct a variety of exchange programs. Among other projects, Teufel oversaw the merger of two regional utilities to form EnBW in 1997 as well as the creation of regional public broadcasting corporation Südwestrundfunk (SWR) in 1998.

On the European level, Teufel represented Baden-Württemberg on the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) from 1994. Between 2002 and 2003, he also represented Germany’s federal states in the Convention on the Future of Europe.

Teufel endorsed Edmund Stoiber instead of Angela Merkel as their parties' candidate to challenge incumbent Chancellor Gerhard Schröder in the 2002 federal elections.

In October 2004, Teufel announced that he was to step down as Minister-President and Chairman of the Baden-Württemberg CDU, effective 19 April 2005. Günther Oettinger was elected as his successor by CDU internal party pre-elections. His referendum win – with 60.6 percent of the vote versus 39.4 percent for State Education Minister Annette Schavan – was widely seen at the time as a defeat for Teufel, who had promoted Schavan as his preferred successor.
