"Volkswagen has been contributing to individual mobility throughout the world for 70 years. Our task is to make advanced technology available to many people. This is why we will be offering 23 full electric vehicles by the year 2025, in addition to conventional powertrains," said Diess.
At the same time as continuing the development of conventional powertrains, Volkswagen will be launching a major electric offensive from 2020 – with the I.D. family based on the entirely newly developed electric architecture. By 2025, the Volkswagen brand will offer a total of 23 full electric models. At Frankfurt, the I.D. CROZZ gives a glimpse of the future: fully electric, fully networked and digital.
Volkswagen has started the largest model offensive in the history of the brand; by 2020, the brand will entirely renew its portfolio as well as expanding it in key core segments. For example, Volkswagen will be significantly increasing its presence in the SUV segment. By 2020, the brand's portfolio will include 19 SUVs throughout the world, boosting the SUV share in the range to 40 percent.
