The Volkswagen Group is investing in the mobility of the future
KFor its electric offensive, the Volkswagen Group is investing heavily in the mobility of the future: over €34 billion have been budgeted up to the end of 2022 for e-mobility, autonomous driving, digital connectivity and new mobility services. The joint ventures in China will be spending a further €15 billion on the electric offensive over the coming years.
The Volkswagen brand in particular will be putting attractive models at affordable prices on the road, paving the way for the breakthrough of electric vehicles worldwide. The electric strategy is based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), a technology platform developed specifically for electric vehicles. Production of the Volkswagen I.D., the world’s first series vehicle based on the MEB, will begin in Zwickau at the end of 2019. September 2018 saw the dawning of a new era at Audi, too, when the carmaker unveiled the e-tron, its first electric series-produced vehicle. The e-tron offers Audi fans and customers a combination of driving pleasure and everyday usability.
The Audi e-tron is the first full-electric model from the brand with the four rings. Forward-looking, innovative and electric – the next step into the future.
