Volkswagen | Sustainable Plant for Electric Cars

Volkswagen is gradually increasing its production capacity for electric cars. The group's largest and highest-performance electric car plant is currently being built in Zwickau (Germany). In the future, up to 330,000 electric models per year will roll off the production lines there. In a first stage, production of the ID compact car will start in November 2019. The second line will go into operation by the end of 2010 following the same principle. With the ID, Volkswagen will for the first time deliver a vehicle that is manufactured CO 2-neutrally throughout the supply and production chain. The measures to avoid CO 2 during the production of the ID also include the energy-intensive manufacture of battery cells. In the final expansion stage, six models with electric drives from three group's brands are to be produced in Zwickau from 2021.
