Volkswagen’s ambition to become a global EV giant is nothing new and now the German brand has revealed its plan to launch a new EV every month from 2022. The automaker has also revealed that it wants to set up 16 new electric car production facilities and the brand is keen to launch around 300 different electric-powered models by 2030. Many of them will be the electric variants of the existing volkswagen models.
Clearly, that’s a very ambitious and well-planned strategy to become a global EV giant. By making this strategy successful, Volkswagen will be able to launch the bigger fleet of environment-friendly zero-emission cars. The first pure electric model from Volkswagen is ready to be launched in 2020 and this hatchback will be christened as ID, in line with the concept model.
Volkswagen is investing Rs. 1,600 crore in powertrain development and as the German auto manufacturer claims that its future powertrains will be built in such manner that will comply with the upcoming stringent emission norms. The brand also believes its drive towards zero-emission mobility will help the automaker to meet the new stricter emission norms easily.
While the entire world automobile market is thriving towards zero emission pure electric mobility, Volkswagen has its own reason to do so. Not only that the German brand aims to become a global EV giant by 2030, it is also desperately trying to salvage its brand image that was severely affected due to the dieselgate scandal. This diesel engine emission scam led the brand to face numerous lawsuits across the world and also it had to pay hefty fine amounts to the affected customers in several countries. The automaker believes that launching a wide range of zero-emission pure electric vehicles will help the brand to come out of the darkness created by the scandal.
