Global responsibility: Volkswagen is committed to the Paris climate goal of restricting the global temperature increase to well below 2 degrees and it has a clearly defined plan.
Contribution to climate protection: Volkswagen is taking social responsibility and it is being transformed into the world’s leading global provider of sustainable mobility.
We are decarbonising the car: Volkswagen will be continuously reducing the CO2 emissions of its vehicle fleet towards zero by 2050.
100 percent CO2-neutral: The ID. is charged with green electricity and it will be the first volume-production vehicle to have a CO2-neutral footprint.
Focused drive strategy: Volkswagen is strategically committed to the battery-powered electric drive as the most efficient option for cutting down CO2 that is available today.
Most extensive e-offensive in the global automotive sector: By 2025, Volkswagen will have increased the number of pure e-vehicles to more than 20 – including the ID. Family based on the new MEB electric platform.
Democratisation of e-mobility: The modular electric drive matrix (MEB) is empowering us to develop opportunities for electric cars without any compromises, to gain huge scale effects and to make the electric car affordable for millions of people.
Maximum efficiency and productivity: The Volkswagen plants in Zwickau, Emden and Hannover are being converted to become the biggest network for production of e-vehicles in Europe.
Important future investments: By 2023, Volkswagen will have invested around 11 billion euros in the technological paradigm change and the digitalisation of vehicles. Around 9 billion euros are being channelled into electromobility.
Strong together: The automobile industry cannot achieve a breakthrough for e-mobility on its own. At the same time, consistent political support is necessary for building up a nationwide charging infrastructure and for switching energy supply from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
