VW significantly increases forecast for production of electric cars in 2025-forecast

At the IAA 2017, the VW Group committed itself to the “Roadmap E”, a comprehensive electrification offensive. In 2019, this will be consolidated and the goals set will be set even higher. And provides the appropriate means to do so. However, hybrids continue to play a role. It becomes clear that VW’s future is seen in China and that e-mobility has a high priority at VW. How high you can see from the VW delivery plans for China: 2020 already 300.000 electric cars.

VW aims for 1 million. electrified cars in 2023, 1.5 million. in 2025 on

In the meantime, the goal of one million electric cars in 2025 to 1.5 million units has been significantly increased. In order to achieve this, VW wants to become the world market leader in e-mobility in the coming years and is investing 33 billion euros across the group by 2024, 11 billion of which will go to the Volkswagen brand. Not only have the target for 2025 been significantly increased. Instead, it is aiming for one million e-cars produced by 2023.

“2020 will be a key year for the transformation of Volkswagen: With the market launch of the ID.3 and other attractive models of the ID. family, our e-offensive is now also visible on the road. The new overall plan of 1.5 million e-cars in 2025 shows that people want climate-friendly, individual mobility – and we are making it affordable for millions of people.“ – Thomas Ulbrich, Member of the Board of Management for E-Mobility at the Volkswagen brand

As part of its e-offensive, Volkswagen has also occupied a number of strategic business areas. With the newly founded subsidiary Elli, Volkswagen is pushing ahead with the development of the charging infrastructure. Elli already has more than 10.000 electricity customers. Volkswagen is also setting up its own charging points together with its dealers: a total of 36 are to be installed by 2025.000 charging points in retail and at locations throughout Europe. Because in March 2019 we were able to report that VW works council chief Osterloh said: “The customer would be ready for the electric car if the infrastructure for charging was available”. In the linked article we took a look at the charging situation at the time.

Volkswagen has also set the course for the development, testing and production of battery cells. A 16 gigawatt hour battery cell factory is to be built in Salzgitter from 2020. The start of production is planned for the turn of the year 2023/2024. To this end, Volkswagen has established a joint venture with the Swedish battery manufacturer Northvolt. Together with Quantum Scape, VW wants to tackle the production of next-generation battery cells. Diess holds out the prospect of having its own plant for solid cell production. Fuel cells of the future are also being developed together with the US elite university Stanford.

  1. VW should rather drive quantities in 2019. Unfortunately, the EU C02 specifications are designed so that a dot landing is mandatory at 95g fleet emissions.
    This will definitely create VW.
    The other numbers (up to 2025) are probably precisely tailored to the fact that the dot landing is guaranteed in the following years. The withdrawal of BEV as SuperCredits is released after 2020 successive.

  2. VW has set the right points per electromobility with the e-roadmap and goes along with Tesla and the Chinese into a future without ICE Cars (of all kind of piston vehicles) and hopefully soon without pseudoelectromobility as the hybrids.

  3. I do not doubt that the manufacturers can build these quantities when the batteries come to country. However, one must above all get the distrust in the population under control. Ultimately, customers must buy the EVS and currently seems to buy the majority (30%) Leiber Suvs with combustion. Electromobility is unfortunately a topic which always leads to very emotional and rarely factual discussion in the population. In part, it is probably because many do not really deal with the topic in detail and denounce what they hear. Unfortunately, the reports in the media are usually not factual and polarizing.
    I suspect that they ultimately do not always pave the environment. Honestly: This is 80% of the people in this country sometimes no matter or. not as important as your own well. One should therefore prefer to pick up people with economic aspects. Money attracts more like environmental protection at the crowd. An e-car is generally much cheaper to maintain (but rising electricity prices don’t really help). If the purchase is also priced similarly to the combustion engine (which is slowly becoming the case), more people will buy the EVs.
    Of course, many push range because you have to rethink. 300 km real minimum range seems to prevail. This means that 90% of the population gets through almost the whole week. Going on vacation is the only thing where a change is required. But people are used to driving 500-1000km with one tank.

  4. VW here VW there. So far nothing but PR babble. But self-praise is already being trumpeted. Not a single car has been on the road so far and the German press is overdoing it with superlatives. Not that I think VW is bad and it needs the ID.3 not. But this artificial PR euphoria harbors considerable dangers. What if the delivery figures, the ranges, the software don’t bring what is being so grandiosely put into the world. A little more modesty would be good for Vwee after the various. scandals.
