Volkswagen is committed to the Paris Climate Convention and is pushing ahead with environmentally friendly drive technologies and production methods at full speed. Throughout the Group, the company has committed itself to becoming CO₂ balance sheet neutral by 2050.
The clear focus on electromobility makes a key contribution to this. Because: the battery-powered electric car has the best climate balance sheet of all drive types. This is the result of a large number of scientific studies, among others by the Fraunhofer Institute, the Federal Ministry for the Environment and the Agora Verkehrswende think tank. The key is CO₂-free or low CO₂ electricity. In almost all European countries today, e-cars already have a clear climate advantage over internal combustion engines.
