Volkswagen prosecutes its factories’ conversion to electric mobility. Volkswagen brand is enlarging its network of global production of electric vehicles with the manufacturing start of full-electric ID.4 at Emden. Emden is currently the second site for electric vehicles in Germany after Zwickau and joins the Chinese plants in Anting and Foshan. Chattanooga and Hannover as well will start the production this year. Consequently, in 2022 Volkswagen is creating the conditions to manufacture in the future 1.2 million full-electric vehicles based on MEB modular platform in its factories in Europe, United States of America and China. Volkswagen has invested around one million Euros for the conversion of Emden factory with its 8,000 employees. Therefore, Emden is the first high-tech site for electric mobility in Lower Saxony. Volkswagen Group will invest 21 billion Euros overall in Lower Saxony until 2026 and will make the Land the German fulcrum of electric mobility. «The fast expansion of the production capacity of our successful ID.4 model is a key component of Accelerate strategy. It aids us in speeding up the transformation towards a zero carbon-emission mobility and in satisfying the high demand for electric vehicles», declared the Ceo of Volkswagen brand, Ralf Brandstätter.
