Volkswagen announced yesterday, Friday, that it will achieve its goal of producing one million electric vehicles two years earlier than planned, amid enormous pressures on European manufacturers to modify their products in order to reduce gas emissions. Volkswagen, based in Wolfsburg, announced that it will be able to produce one million electric vehicles by the end of 2023 instead of the end of 2025. He added that by the end of 2025 productivity will have increased to 1.5 million.
This marks a sharp contrast to 70,000 electric cars this year and 50,000 last year. Volkswagen aims to improve its productivity and sales by introducing the ID.3, a battery model that according to the company will have a reasonable price and sufficient performance to transform the vehicle from an exclusive product to one of mass consumption. ID.3 will cost about 30,000 euros ($ 33,500).
