Volkswagen is energetically pushing ahead with its electric offensive in 2021 as well. The brand will soon start deliveries of the ID.4, the first all-electric SUV. This year will also witness the launch of another model in the ID. family to the market. As the number of models increase, so does the volume: after the brand delivered around 134,000 pure e-cars last year, further growth is planned for the coming years. The establishment of a global network for the production of electric vehicles plays a decisive role in this. “The Volkswagen brand is systematically continuing its e-offensive. In addition to new e-models, this also includes the transformation of the global production network. In this way, we are underpinning our ambitions to become a global leader in e-mobility,” says Thomas Ulbrich, Member of the Board of Management for E-Mobility at the Volkswagen brand.
The latest example is the start of series production of the ID.3 at the Transparent Factory in Dresden. At the Saxon site, where the luxury Phaeton sedan, the Bentley Flying Spur and most recently the e-Golf previously rolled off the production line, 35 ID.3 vehicles will be produced every day from the end of January. The Transparent Factory will also be strengthened as a research and innovation site, driving innovative projects for late-stage deployment at major volume Volkswagen brand sites and offering visitors and guests a holistic experience of the ID. family.
