By 2028, Volkswagen plans to build 22 million e-drive cars – more than half of them will be produced in the People's Republic of China. Thus, the Middle Kingdom is an important building block in the e-transformation of the German car maker.
Group CEO dr. Herbert Diess explains at the Shanghai Auto Show: "The Chinese market and our strong Chinese partners are playing a key role in our plans to enable millions of people to achieve cleaner, safer and smarter personal mobility." By the end of 2019, the Volkswagen Group China will have 14 electrified models on offer.
According to Volkswagen, all partners should contribute to the e-offensive, ie the three joint ventures FAW-Volkswagen, SAIC Volkswagen and JAC Volkswagen. When the production of vehicles on the MEB platform starts in the factories in Anting and in Foshan 2020, the annual production capacity is around 600,000 all-electric vehicles, it is said. JAC and Seat also develop their own platform for smaller electric cars, says VW.
