Volkswagen to offer electric cars for all models by 2030

Frankfurt sick notes- why so many manufacturers were a no-show at IAA 2017

Volkswagen refers to the Roadmap E as the "most comprehensive electrification initiative in the global automotive industry" and will see the combined Volkswagen Group brands bring 80 new electric vehicle lines to production by 2025 and plans for at least one electrified variant of each of the group's 300 variants to be rolled out by 2030.

Volkswagen has stepped up its shift toward the electric auto and is planning to invest over €20 billion or $24 billion in the zero-emission vehicles by 2030 as it tries to challenge the pioneer in the industry Tesla in creating mass market vehicles.

The world's largest carmaker Volkswagen has pledged to invest billions of dollars in the development of new electric vehicles and present less than 15 years, by 2030, elektroversiya all of their models.

Instead of bringing a new prototype from the I.D. family, Volkswagen has chose to revisit the first Crozz just in time for the Frankfurt Motor Show in a bid to support its claims of pushing towards a greener future. He added that VW is setting the scene for a final breakthrough in e-mobility. Daimler will show off a fully electric, compact auto under its EQ brand, which represents the company's push into areas it has bundled under the acronym CASE: connected, autonomous, shared and services, and electric.

If only Volkswagen had devoted as much time, money, and effort into developing competitive electric cars as it did devising diesel cheating technology, it might have been a market leader.

"We will be thoroughly updating our vehicle range by 2020 and expanding into important segments", says VW passenger cars chairman Dr Herbert Diess.

The total investment amount also includes a United States dollars 60 billion dedicated towards building four battery factories, he said according to The Verge. This is not some vague declaration of intent.

It also claims that by 2025 it will need more than 150 gigawatt hours of ion batteries to power its own fleet alone.

Daimler said on Monday its Mercedes-Benz luxury brand planned to offer electric motors for all models by 2022, though cautioned the shift to lower-margin electric cars required extra cost savings. "We are listening to the voice of reason".

For instance, an SCR catalytic converter will be a standard feature of every new diesel engine produced by the Group going forward. The new T-Roc small SUV from Volkswagen, for instance, will come with three possible gasoline engines to choose from - and three diesels. Significant improvements in consumption and emissions are promised. The Group is also significantly expanding its range of CNG vehicles and, spearheaded by Audi, refining fuel cell technology toward market maturity.
