Plans are even more optimistic than before. The whole plan is worth 33 billion dollars.
New decade that we entered few days ago will most likely result in a definitive jump from classic, ICE-driven cars to electric cars. What the first years will look like in this area, Volkswagen may have best portrayed with plans, with which it wants to take the lead in industry in the coming years, at least as far as the sale of new cars is concerned.
German Volkswagen presented a gimps of new era with an electric model ID.3, which experienced its debut at the Frankfurt auto show in September last year (and, despite the recent local presentations, it will hit the road only in the summer), and this year a new electric model is expected to be presented based on the concept of ID Crozz. At the same time, new electrici models will be presented or placed in production by other brands, which are part of the group, including the Audi E-tron GT, the sports versions of Taycan, Seat el.born and so on. To buy ID.3 more than 37,000 customers have chosen so far.
Speaking of the future, some time ago, the Volkswagen forecast that by 2025, they would produce a million electric cars, and now the forecasts have been strongly raised. In total, they are expecting to produce as many as a million electric cars in the coming years, thanks to the German plant in Zwickau. It is now well in the state of modernisation and will produce as many as 330,000 electric cars with the completion of the renovation in 2023 a year.
“2020 will be a key year for the transformation of Volkswagen. With the market launch of the ID.3 and other attractive models in the ID. family, our electric offensive will also become visible on the roads”, says Thomas Ulbrich, Member of the Volkswagen brand Board of Management responsible for E-Mobility. “Our new overall plan for 1.5 electric cars in 2025 shows that people want climate- friendly individual mobility – and we are making it affordable for millions of people.”
