Volkswagen is going to release more electric cars than plannedDecember 30, 2019
The German automaker has corrected the previous plan for the production of electric vehicles, setting a more ambitious goal – 1.5 million green cars by 2025.
Our portal has already said that Volkswagen wants to take a leading position in the electric car market, increasing the production of such cars. To achieve this goal, in 2021 the brand is planning to transfer its factory in Zwickau to produce only electric cars. So, it is reported that the German automaker is going to reach the goal of a million electric cars already in 2023 – this is two years earlier than it was in the old plan. In the 2025th, Volkswagen plans to produce already one and a half million electric cars.
The electrification of the range of the German brand began with the Volkswagen ID.3, which debuted this year at the September Frankfurt Motor Show. In November, an environmentally friendly new product hit the conveyor belt of the Zwickau factory, but the ID.3 market debut in Europe is scheduled for the summer of 2020.
To become one of the best electric cars on the market, Volkswagen is generously investing in the development and production of such cars. So, according to media reports, by 2021, the VW Group is going to send 33 million euros for these purposes, and about 11 million of them will receive the Volkswagen brand.
Meanwhile, it became known that Volkswagen ID. Crozz gets to the assembly line in 2020. The novelty, according to unofficial data, may be called ID.4.
