If you were paying attention to Volkswagen announcements recently, you know that it has introduced Volkswagen ID.3 – an all-electric vehicle. Apparently the diesel emissions fiasco caused Volkswagen management to do some soul searching, and the company has done a full 180 and jumped into the electric car race.
But more significant than introduction of Volkswagen ID.3 is their commitment to mass production of electric vehicles. Tesla, after years of making headlines, still produces only around 500,000 electric vehicles per year. Volkswagen says they will have capacity to build over 1.2 million electric vehicles per year by 2022, thus surpassing Tesla. By 2028 Volkswagen is promising to have in place capacity to produce over 20 million electric vehicles per year.
