Volkswagen will launch its first models from theI.D. family of EVs next year and, by 2025, plans to be shipping 1,000,000 of such battery-powered cars worldwide.
This means that the German manufacturer wants that 1 out of 6 cars they sell in six years’ time to be electric.
The world’s automotive manufacturers look for ways to increase their presence in the BEV market, and Volkswagen seems to be one of the boldest of them all, setting a target of 1,000,000 EVs sold in 2025. The global sales volume of EVs in 2017 rose by 60% compared to 2016 and, this year, the 1,000,000-cars threshold could be surpassed.
