Volkswagen is a latecomer to the growing electric car market, but says its new ID.3, which has started production at a VW plant in Zwickau, is worth the wait.
The German car giant said it will invest even more money than previously planned into expanding its electric fleet. Over the next decade, VW plans to roll out 75 completely electric models and 60 hybrid vehicles.
The German government and car industry have agreed to increase joint subsidies for electric car buyers and extend the program to 2025. The news came as VW began production of its new all-electric vehicle.
Volkswagen is serious about electromobility. In the city of Zwickau, near Germany's Czech border, the carmaker is pressing ahead with the production of its ID.3 electric car. Henrik Böhme was there to see it.
Already struggling to keep aging vehicles on the road, low-wage workers could be forgotten in the electomobility age. Climate crisis or not, policymakers face increasing pressure to ensure everyone can stay mobile.
