Today, Volkswagen announced its intention to accelerate its electrification effort as part of its carbonization plan by adding 20 more "electric models" in its scheduled lineup to produce 22 million electric cars over the next 10 years.
The 22 million cars will now consist of 70 different models released over Volkswagen's multiple brands.
Dr. Herbert Diess, Managing Director of Volkswagen AG, said at the company's annual meeting:
"Volkswagen takes on responsibility for future key trends – especially in terms of climate protection. The goals of the Paris Agreement are our benchmark. We will systematically adapt production and other stages in the value chain of CO 2 neutrality in the coming years, this is how we make our contribution to limiting global warming Volkswagen seeks to provide individual mobility for millions of people over the years ̵1; individual mobility that is Safer, Cleaner, and Fully Connected. In order to invest as needed for electric shock, we need to make further improvements in efficiency and performance in all areas. "
The German machine also boxed its three-part plan to descale the operation at" first , efficient and sustainable CO 2 reduction Second, switch to renewable energy sources for power supply Third, compensate for residual emissions that cannot be avoided. "
I know VW gets a lot of flags to always talk about their ambitious electric car plans instead of delivering them, but they come people.  It's easy to say, but they come in. It's just that these big older car manufacturers are moving slowly.
What is important is that when it comes to VW, we've seen them make a significant investment in converting gasoline and diesel cars into electric car production capacity.
Now the vehicles are starting to come slowly this year.
In the new press release, they listed the current known series to make sure everyone remembers:
- Audi e-tron
- Porsche Taycan
- Volkswagen ID
- ID CROZZ
- electric born
- ŠKODA Vision E
- ID. BUZZ
- ID. VIZZION
These vehicles are all at different stages of production and development, but they have all become the green light for volume production.
When That being said, it won't be a simple transition for Volkswagen. They have already had trouble delivering the e-throne.
It will be interesting to see how they handle the next few years.
