Electric vehicles for everyone. The Volkswagen electric offensive is gaining massive momentum. It is built upon the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), which will be the foundation for numerous new models with very different wheelbases and concepts. The new ID.3 is the pioneer here. Its production started at the beginning of November, and the SUV ID.CROZZ, ID.BUZZ camper van successor and ID.VIZZION saloon are to follow.
As soon as 2025, the company is aiming to produce up to 3 million all-electric vehicles every year; by then there will be more than 50 electric vehicles on the market, of which more than 20 will be from the Volkswagen brand. By the end of 2022, more than €30 billion will have been invested, and the joint ventures in China will be investing a further €15 billion over the next few years.
The e-up!, which has been on the market since 2013, does not yet use the MEB platform. However, following its upgrade in particular, it fits perfectly into the Group’s strategy of making electric vehicles attractive and affordable for as many people as possible.
