Important pillar in the ramp-up of electric mobility. The Volkswagen brand is pushing steadily on to switch its factories to electric mobility and is on schedule to achieve its goal. The Volkswagen site in Emden was one of the first factories to be converted to electric vehicle production. Around one billion euros have been invested in the conversion measures and building work for the biggest transformation process in factory history. In 2022, high-volume production of the all-electric compact SUV, the ID.4, began in the assembly hall for electric vehicles. From 2023 onwards, the production version of the ID. AEROwill also roll off the production line in Emden.
“Way to ZERO” in production. By producing electric vehicles in large volumes, the Emden factory will make a significant contribution to the electrification of Volkswagen’s model range and the reduction of carbon emissions from the entire fleet of new vehicles. The implementation of carbon-neutral production processes plays a key role in the site’s transformation. For this reason, the use of renewable energy sources and sustainable logistics processes will be pursued in the Emden factory.
