Volkswagen Group will electrify its 300-car lineup by 2030

Experience 360 degrees of Magna at IAA Frankfurt

Ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show, VW Group CEO Matthias Mueller, while elaborating on the Dollars 84 billion project, stated that they aim to deliver 80 electrified offerings by 2025, including the Volkswagen I.D. Buzz Concept and a host of EVs from Audi.

The Group was billed by some media outlets as the first volume manufacturer to make the declaration that it would electrify its entire fleet by a certain date.

An "electrified vehicle" could mean a hybrid electric car, a plug-in hybrid electric car, or a battery electric car. "The transformation of our industry is unstoppable and we will lead it by redefining mobility to be cleaner and better".

Set to be the first of a number of new fully electric Volkswagen models, Volkswagen has released these images showing the vehicle in its entirety for the first time.

Before the major scandal that erupted two years ago because lowering Volkswagen indicators of harmful emissions, the automaker took nearly no notice of the market development of electric vehicles and unmanned vehicles.

Doing that is going to require plenty of batteries. The future developed electric SUV is a part of Volkswagen's new electric campaign in which the company will initially introduce three models starting from 2020.

However, Müller told the company event yesterday that there was a critical need for more EV charging infrastructure in cities and on highways to help EVs breakthrough in the market, adding that the low emission transport and energy transitions are also "inextricably linked".

However, Skoda too has its own electrification strategy and has committed to offering one of its EVs for the same price as an internal combustion engine powered vehicle. "We are listening to the voice of reason", said Müller.

The German company had previously said it would spend more than €10 billion by 2025 on a move to electric vehicles. The latest Euro 6 diesel engines deliver above-average performance in the new WLTP cycle under real-world conditions. Conventional drive systems are not opponents.

Muller said the firm was also expanding its CNG gas programme, while Audi is working on fuel cell technology that has the potential to reach mass production by 2025.
