Emden and Hannover become E-vehicle works

Emden and Hannover become E-vehicle works-emden

Already on Thursday we have reported that the focus on the production of innovative electric vehicles is part of the planning for the work of the VW. The Supervisory Board had to decide on this on Friday in Wolfsburg. As part of this, Emden and Hanover are to be further flagship units in Germany and, in conjunction with Zwickau, form the largest composite for the production of E-vehicles in Europe, so Head of Personnel Gunnar Kilian.

The decision has now fallen and the works in Emden and Hannover are electrified. This states that there are 2022 vehicles of the ID. Family roles from the tape. In order to serve future growth in Europe, the Group wants to expand its production capacities from 2022 with an additional factory in Eastern Europe.

“We have redefined the strategic guard planks, where we organize our work assignment in the future. We make our works fit for the future. For this purpose, among other things, we will bundle brand cross-brand product families to use maximum synergies and cost advantages. So we fully draw the potential of the Volkswagen Group.”- Oliver Flower, Member of the Executive Board of Volkswagen AG, responsible for the Group Production

As already indicated, electric small cars and limousines of several brands are manufactured in Emden in the future, while the Hanover location next to the production of vehicles with conventional drive on the ID. BUZZ family specializing in.

Flower also gives understanding that the high manufacturing expertise and qualification of the employees contributes to the fact that the German locations for the transformation in E-Werke are particularly well suited. Thus, the sites Zwickau, Emden and Hannover are geared to the electrification strategy and thus form a key prerequisite for the expansion of the E-Fleet and thus for the achievement of the CO2 objectives of the Group.

The Volkswagen Passatfamilie is relocated to the Czech Skoda plant Kvasiny and manufactured from 2023 together with the Skoda models Superb and Kodiaq. The Skoda Karoq and the Seat Ateca, which are currently produced in Kvasiny, are relocated to a new group multi-brand work. For this purpose, a location in Eastern Europe is sought. Skoda will produce its pure electric vehicles from 2020 on the Czech location Mladá Boleslav. From 2019, the car manufacturer will also produce electrical components for plug-in hybrids.

“I am particularly proud that we have succeeded in setting up the electromobility to large parts in this country in our plants. Because the markets of Germany and Western Europe will be in addition to China and the US pioneer in the introduction of the E-vehicles.”- Bernd Osterloh, Volkswagen Total and Group Council Chairman

The transition to e-mobility is therefore no more privacy music, it starts here and now. And this overall picture also belongs that the change jobs are lost, then Osterloh continues. Ten years of employment exclude operational dismissals from the end of 2028. The demographic curve makes customizations without anyone having to lose their employment.

Nevertheless, Osterloh is sure that Volkswagen designs this change out of a position of strength and thus sets a clear sign for the entire industry. You bring the future to Germany: emotional electric vehicles, innovative mobility concepts and the megatrend of autonomous driving are built and advanced in front of the doorstep. For this you want to be just 2023 just under 44 billion. Invest in the future – e-mobility plays a crucial role.

The most essential criteria of the factory assignment are the optimal capacity utilization, the platform-oriented occupancy of the locations and the volume bundling. Flexible multi-brand factories will therefore continue to increase to use the benefits of the flexible production network.

To increase productivity and reduction in factory costs and investments, the reuse of existing equipment and factory structures and a cross-brand standardization is consistently set. To raise further efficiencies, the Group relies on digital transformation in its factories.

Is targeted that the Group up to 2025 increases its productivity by 30 percent. In the same period, the environmental impact of factories – after good progress in recent years – should be halved. “We set clear and ambitious goals,” says flower. “Production must be a strategic competitive advantage for the Volkswagen Group.”
