Volkswagen is optimistic when it comes to doing what its competitors have struggled to do: make a profit while making electric vehicles.
VW boss Herbert Diess says his company has a plan not to lose money.
"Our approach is different," Diess said. "We come with high volumes, we have a dedicated platform that is only for electric cars, and we generate a lot of scale because we invest simultaneously in China, Europe and the US."
Electric car manufacturer Tesla has not yet made a profit on an annual basis, although it has had a handful of profitable quarters.
VW has an electric car on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. ID.3 is priced at under $ 33,000.
If Volkswagen has its way, two out of every five cars the company sells will be electric by 2030.
