VW is looking to the future of electrification since the Ζwickau plant will produce only electric vehicles
VW vehicle manufacturing plant in Zwickau, after 116 years, is now focused on the production of only electric vehicles. It is certainly a very important turning point for the German company that shows the way clearly now that the future belongs to electric vehicles.
The production of the last VW Golf Estate car, which took place at VW’s plant in Zwickau, Germany, now marks the shift of this unit to the new era of electrification. As you know, and given the completion of the production of the latest car with a thermal engine, only electric models starting from ID.3 will now be manufactured at this factory.
The new ID.4 will be added to the production lines early next year, which will be the SUV version of the German company’s electric hatchback. Total investment for the transformation of this unit began in November 2019 and has so far reached €1.2 billion.
