The Volkswagen brand is consistently moving ahead with the changeover of its plants to e-mobility in line with its plans. The conversion of the Emden plant has already started and the first electric cars are to roll off the production line there from 2022.
Emden is to be the first plant in Lower Saxony where large volumes of electric vehicles will be produced. The new all-electric compact SUV ID.4 is to start production there in 2022 and will be followed by the Aero in 2023. The production of the Passat sedan and estate, the Arteon and the new Shooting Brake will continue for a transitional period of several years.
