Volkswagen will Launch a New Crossover Based on the ID.3

Volkswagen will be busy launching new EVs ahead of dropping the ICE completely in Europe by 2033

  • It should be one of the 10 new e-models to launch between now and 2026.

  • Also part of the plans is new smaller entry-level EVs.

  • And, VW’s launched the new Scout website.

Thomas Schäfer, Member of the Board at Volkswagen AG. CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, and Head of Brand Group Volume has just completed his first 100 days as the new boss and he has looked back on and forward too.

In a post found on LinkedIn, Schäfer noted that Volkswagen was focusing now more than ever on its customers. Another element that’s also been touched upon is VW’s plans to cut down the number of models offered for sales in order to, once more, focus on core products for its customers.

The automaker announced a while back that they were committed to going all-electric. Here again, Schäfer confirms the move and notes that they will only be building electric cars in Europe from 2033 at the latest.

The Old Continent and other markets are privy to the compact ID.3 while it eludes North America. Schäfer has shared that Volkswagen is looking into creating a compact SUV based on the EV, a model that could potentially fit in our landscape. At least, it’s far more likely to make it than the new entry-level e-car that will come in two versions – as a small car and as a sporty crossover variant.

Volkswagen is Searching for a Place to Build Scout Vehicles

Odds are however that none will come to North America as VW will soon get the wheels turning over at Scout. In fact, they’ve recently launched the SUV/truck brand’s website:
