Anhui province is to be transformed into a new center of competence and e-mobility hub for the Volkswagen Group in China. As a first step, today saw the inauguration of a new Research & Development center at the company’s facilities in Hefei. At the same time, the joint venture JAC Volkswagen was renamed as Volkswagen (Anhui) Automotive Company Limited. With a 75 percent stake in the joint venture, Volkswagen takes over management control at Volkswagen (Anhui). The company’s future products will be based on the Group’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB), with plans for a step-by-step expansion of local R&D competence in the localization of MEB-based derivatives, and the aim of capitalizing on global synergies. The first vehicle is expected to roll off the Anhui production line in 2023.
