Volkswagen brand about to leap into the electric era

News

The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand is entering the next phase of its transformation stronger.

Info
Despite the current situation surrounding the coronavirus crisis, Volkswagen is starting with the second phase of its TRANSFORM 2025+ strategy, thus marking the beginning of a new era for the brand.

The large-scale electrification initiative will now also be visible on the roads. The ID.3, the first all-electric car based on the new MEB electric platform, is set to be delivered to customers starting this summer. The brand's first all-electric SUV, the ID.4, will follow afterwards. The continuing electrification of our conventional portfolio will further complement our product range.

In doing so, Volkswagen is embarking on the path toward zero-emission mobility for all. By 2022, the brand will offer electric cars based on the MEB platform in all key vehicle segments. By 2025, at least 1.5 million electric cars should be sold per year. The long-term goal is the complete decarbonisation of the fleet and the Group by 2050. The fleet's average CO2 emissions should be reduced by 25 grams per kilometer in the current year. The brand is confident of complying with the 2020 EU limits.

In addition to electrification, the brand will also vigorously press ahead with digitalisation in the next few years. The focus here is on two core areas: the implementation of the digital transformation roadmap and the establishment of the Car.Software organisation.

After the conclusion of the pact for the future, the digital transformation roadmap is the follow-up program to make the brand fit for the digital age. This means new digital competencies will be built up and the organisation will become faster, leaner and more competitive in all areas. By 2023, up to 4,000 administrative positions will be eliminated this way. At the same time, 2,000 digital jobs are planned.

Some of the new jobs will be created in the new Car.Software organisation, with which the brand has taken Group responsibility for the area of car software. All software activities, from the operating system in the car through digital ecosystems to new mobility services, will be combined in the new unit. Around 3,000 digital experts have already been brought together in the first step. By 2025, more than 10,000 software engineers will work in the unit.
