- 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.

Enhanced quality, likeable, digital: world premiere of the new ID.3Fresh design, higher-quality materials and the latest-generation assist systems: that is the new ID.3. Two and a half years after the launch of the first generation, the all-electric bestseller from Volkswagen is now coming to the market with a comprehensive upgrade. In addition to the latest software, the compact electric car comes with a sharpened exterior and refined interior design. The range of colours has been extended by new colours, including Dark Olivine Green. High-quality, animal-free and sustainable materials reflect Volkswagen’s strategy for the all-electric ID. family.
Volkswagen makes the interior of the ID. models even more sustainableVolkswagen is making the all-electric ID. family even more sustainable – including the choice of materials for the interior. During the course of this year, the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 and ID.7 will receive selected innovations that were first used in mass production in the ID. Buzz. As one example of this, VW uses Seaqual® yarn as a seat cover material. This is made from 10 per cent collected marine debris and 90 per cent recycled PES yarn. The CO2 emissions from production are almost one third lower than for conventional cover materials.
Fully electric, fully extreme: the ID. XTREME off-road concept carExtremely emotive, extremely adventurous, extremely different. The new all-electric ID. XTREME concept vehicle demonstrates the enormous performance capacity and extraordinary versatility of Volkswagen’s modular electric drive matrix (MEB). A performance drive on the rear axle and software adjustments to the control unit give the ID. XTREME impressive off-road capabilities. The fully electric all-wheel drive develops a system power of 285 kW/387 PS. This corresponds to a performance increase of around 30 percent compared to the gene donor ID.4 GTX.
