50% of all New Volkswagen Vehicle Sales will be Electric by 2030

Volkswagen estimates that by 2050, their global operations will be climate neutral


  • This year, VW predicts that 6% of its global sales will be EVs.

  • That number will rise to about 20% by 2025.

  • VW will have invested 73 billion euros in electrification by 2025.


Sustainability is a goal every automaker with long-term business plans hopes to achieve before too long. The road will be a costly and likely bumpy one however Volkswagen has mapped out various highlights including when they hope to achieve selling nearly 100% zero-emission vehicles globally.

According to Volkswagen’s NEW AUTO Strategy Presentation delivered by Herbert Diess, 2040 will mark the end of all global sales of new internal combustion engine’d vehicles for the German automaker. We need to remember that not all countries and jurisdictions have roadmaps similar to Canada and Europe, for example, where new ICE sales will be banned by 2035.

The road to zero emissions will see VW’s global EV sales grow to 20% (of total sales) by 2025. That amount will jump to 50% by the end of the decade. In order to reach these milestones, Volkswagen will focus on China, the US, and Europe.
