From 2019 to 2023, the brand aims to invest more than 11 billion euros in electromobility, digitalization, autonomous driving and mobile services. More than nine billion euros of this will go toward the brand’s electrification drive. Currently, the brand has two fully electric cars in its range. By 2025, it wants to have around 20. The conversion of the Zwickau plant to a fully electric factory is already underway. Additionally, the plants in Emden and Hanover will be converted for the production of electric cars from 2022. Together, these three locations will form the biggest e-production group in Europe. In China, too, two electric plants will be built in Anting and Foshan, which will start production in 2020. In North America, the brand will soon be deciding the location of a new plant for electric vehicles. With the fully electric ID., built in Zwickau, Volkswagen is putting a new generation of vehicles on the road that sets new standards in digitalization and connected driving. “The ID. will place the dawn of the era of electromobility and the connectivity of our brand within reach for our customers. It will represent ‘New Volkswagen’ as the first fully connected and fully electric vehicle,” says Sales Director Jürgen Stackmann.
