As early as 2018, the Volkswagen Group became the first vehicle manufacturer to commit to the Paris Agreement – the entire company is aiming to be carbon neutral by 2050. One key factor in this process is the electrification of the product range. Volkswagen Passenger Cars already managed to deliver more electric vehicles around the world than ever before last year: In total, it delivered over 212,000 electric cars (+158 percent compared to 2019), around 134,000 of which (+197 percent compared to 2019) were battery electric vehicles.

On the journey to carbon neutrality, the product portfolio plays a decisive role. The company is picking up speed, ramping up production figures and covering all segments – “This is how we plan to make Volkswagen the most popular brand for sustainable mobility”, says CEO Ralf Brandstätter. Over the next few years, Volkswagen Passenger Cars will be launching at least one new electric model every year.
