On the Way to Zero. By 2030, Volkswagen is aiming to cut carbon emissions per vehicle by 40 per cent; on its Way to Zero, the company’s goal is to be climate neutral by 2050 at the latest. By 2030, at least 70 per cent of Volkswagen’s unit sales in Europe is to come from electric-only vehicles, which is equivalent to significantly more than one million vehicles. In North America and China, the goal is that electric vehicles will account for at least 50 per cent of unit sales. To achieve these goals, Volkswagen is launching at least one electric vehicle onto the market every year.
Extensive digitalisation: Volkswagen is ambitious. It is taking a forward-looking stance with its new ACCELERATE brand strategy. In the future, the Volkswagen brand not only wants to be the benchmark for electric mobility, but also for the areas of the digital customer experience, vehicle software and autonomous driving. The goal is to enhance the vehicle to become a software-based product. With innovative assist systems and over-the-air updates, our ID. models already provide drivers with maximum comfort and the best possible user experience. The next important step in our transformation into a software-oriented mobility provider.
Investment in renewable energy. Volkswagen is investing heavily in Europe’s quick-charging network and is working with its partners to create a network of 18,000 charging points by 2025. Volkswagen is also the first vehicle manufacturer to support the expansion of renewable energy on a large scale. Work is underway to construct new wind and solar farms in various regions of Europe by 2025. Collectively, these farms will then generate around seven terawatt hours of additional green power in 2025.
