- Volkswagen is on track with electrification of its vehicle fleet. Since handing over the first ID.3 in September 2020, Volkswagen has already delivered more than half a million vehicles from the ID. family worldwide, and has therefore achieved an important milestone in implementation of its ACCELERATE strategy on its way to becoming a zero-emission, software-based mobility services provider.
- As from 2033, Volkswagen plans to produce only electric vehicles in Europe. By as early as 2030, it is planned that at least 70 per cent of Volkswagen’s sales in Europe will come from all-electric vehicles. In the US and China, the company has set itself the goal of achieving an electric share of more than 50 per cent in the same period.
- Volkswagen offers the widest range of electric models: from the entry-level electric car with a target price of less than 25,000 euros to the new ID.7 saloon, the brand will have a suitable vehicle in every segment. The company is already launching ten new electric models by 2026.
- The main plant in Wolfsburg will be converted into a highly efficient plant for electric mobility in the coming years. In a first step, the company is investing about 460 million euros as part of this transformation.
