With a new EV model every year Volkswagen wants to speed up the process in electric mobility and according to a statement by Ralf Brandstätter (Chief Operating Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars) 70% of the company’s sales by 2030 in Europe, will be electric models.
The German company has recently taken an aggressive approach to the spread of EVs and promised that 35% of European sales will be electric by the end of this decade. But now, by mouth Brandstätter, he raised the bar much higher to 70%.
VW’s powerful man has personally pledged that the German brand will unveil at least one new EV model every year. He also said the market is now ripe to accept electric mobility and markets in the United States along with China will make up 50% of Volkswagen’s total sales.
The German brand will unveil six new electric models by 2025, including the ID.1, which was decided to come into production two years earlier than originally planned. Brandstätter, of course, believes that only with electric models VW can’t be able to look competitive.
