Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Volkswagen is planning to focus on electric vehicles in the future, therefore technology improvement and market share expansion are current emphases. As a significant partner of Volkswagen in China, it's without doubt that FAW Volkswagen got technological support from Volkswagen. Volkswagen will introduce MEB, a newly developed platform with strategic importance for Volkswagen to produce I.D. vehicle series, into China by 2020 or later.
According to official plan, FAW Volkswagen will produce all-electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles based on conventional cars by 2021, and introduce MEB afterwards, to produce vehicle models including sedan and SUV.
Volkswagen officially announced that the first I.D. mass-production vehicle to be launched in 2020 will be named "I.D.1", which is a compact all-electric sedan. I.D.1 will be put into mass production by the end of 2019, and sold from 2020.
Besides, Volkswagen will initiate deeper cooperation with two China JV companies in new energy vehicles by 2021, launch at least 50 all-electric vehicle models and 30 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles by 2025, and produce only electric vehicles by 2030.
So far, FAW Volkswagen has been preparing for the production of e-Golf vehicles, which will provide a range of 300 km, up 50% compared to the current overseas version.
According to the official product layout, Volkswagen will launch two SUV models and one sedan model after 2020, and these three new models will be manufactured by FAW Volkswagen.
Though the first all-electric vehicle of Volkswagen will only be launched in 2020 while other auto companies are rushing to launch kinds of new energy vehicles now, yet Volkswagen has great potential to surpass others as a latecomer for the long range and outstanding battery charge technology of its products.
