Volkswagen To Hit 1 Million EVs Well Ahead Of Schedule

A million EVs by 2023. 1.5 million by 2025.

  • By the end of 2023, VW will have produced 1 million EVs.
  • The original goal was to reach the mark by 2025.
  • 70,000 were produced in 2019.

We’re not anywhere done reporting on carmakers the world over boasting about electrified and EV vehicle production, technologies and all things related. One of the OEMs that comes most often is VW. As the largest per volume car manufacturer on the Globe, and one heavily invested in electrification, it’s no surprise that Volkswagen aims to crush their 1 million EVs produced goal nearly two years ahead of schedule.

Volkswagen Auto Group will release numerous fully-electric vehicles in 2020 though its multiple brands. The one that is and will capture the most attention is the ID.3 which, as we know, is not coming to the US, but might trickle into Canada eventually. North America will get to sample the VW ID.4 crossover possibly as early as late 2020.

It is the ID.3 that will be in large part responsible for reaching the million-unit mark. VW’s plant in Zwickau is on track to produce up to 330,000 vehicles a year by 2021. Factor in the ID.4 and vehicles from all other makes, including Porsche, and 1 million EVs doesn’t seem like a huge number.

Thomas Ulbrich, Member of the Volkswagen brand Board of Management responsible for E-Mobility said: “2020 will be a key year for the transformation of Volkswagen. With the market launch of the ID.3 and other attractive models in the ID. family, our electric offensive will also become visible on the roads. Our new overall plan for 1.5 electric cars in 2025 shows that people want climate-friendly individual mobility – and we are making it affordable for millions of people.”
