On the production of the Volkswagen Electric Car, the ID3 will be made in the German carmaker factory starting later this year. The goal set is to build 330,000 EVs per year.
Right now, Zwickau makes over r 250,000 vehicles a year, with around 8,000 employees.
On a press release, VW stated:
“Volkswagen is set to build the attractive, affordable e-car for everyone. An e-car for millions, not just for millionaires. To do so, the Volkswagen plant in Zwickau is currently being transformed into the first, largest, highest-performing — and most environmentally friendly — e-factory in Europe.”
It also said about how long the production will take to reach the number.
“Already by the end of 2019, the first fully-electric ID. Models will be rolling off the production line at the Volkswagen plant in Zwickau, starting with the ID.3. In the final stage, from 2021 onwards, 330,000 all-electric cars will be built per year.”
Earlier this year, VW also announced a US factory, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, would receive an investment of 800 million dollars to build EVs.
Volkswagen is finally putting the plans in action, and if the predictions of the company work out, it will become a great seller of EVs in a very short time.
