The Volkswagen Group will launch 80 new electric vehicles by 2025.
By 2030 they will electrified the whole model range with their “Roadmap E” automotive business plan.
Matthias Müller, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft said this:
“We have got the message and we will deliver. This is not some vague declaration of intent. It is a strong self-commitment which, from today, becomes the yardstick by which we measure our performance”. “The transformation in our industry is unstoppable. And we will lead that transformation.”
Now, at this year’s IAA, Volkswagen is launching the next stage with “Roadmap E” – giving an added boost to product planning to massively accelerate the electrification of the Group-wide vehicle portfolio. The Group brands will bring a total of over 80 new electrified models to customers by 2025, including some 50 purely battery-powered vehicles and 30 plug-in hybrids. This figure will then increase by leaps and bounds over subsequent years until there is at least one electrified version for each of the Group’s 300 or so models across all vehicle classes worldwide by 2030 at the latest, in line with Volkswagen’s commitment. “With ‘Roadmap E’, we are opening up a new chapter in our Group’s history. And setting the scene for e-mobility’s final breakthrough. Then it is up to customers to decide how fast it will gain widespread acceptance.”
