Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. To achieve the targets set by the Paris climate agreement, it is necessary to reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector. Of course, we want to take on that responsibility. To create a fleet of purely electric models, Volkswagen invests in a global approach: mobility for a future not only electrifying, but also sustainable. Earlier this year, the Volkswagen Group committed to the goals of the Paris Agreement, the 200 Nations Agreement, which aims to limit global warming to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit by reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants. This is not an easy task, as most studies show that the planet has already warmed by half in recent decades. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to generalize electric vehicles emitting emissions without tailpipes, which are not only at hand for affluent buyers. “Electrification with zero tube emissions is an important part of our goal, but the other is not to stand still on the traditional car,” Fischer says. “By 2040, we hope that about 60% of the vehicles we sell in the U.S.
will be electric vehicles, and another 10-25% will be hybrids of any kind.” The compact ID is just one example of the development of electromobility. By 2025, Volkswagen Group brands will increase the number of purely electric cars from 6 currently to more than 50, including the entire ID family, based on the new MEB electric platform. “We`re going to launch a model offensive that will electrify the world.” We already have 15 million vehicles in fixed projects,” said Jost. Our electric cars are not savings-saving vehicles, they are value-added and are fun to drive. They are also marketed at affordable prices. For electrification, the group planned to invest more than 30 billion euros. The Volkswagen Group has a clear plan that shows its commitment to the Paris climate change goals. The limits of global warming and the transition to e-mobility are among the central themes of the Handelsblatt Car Summit. The platform is presented in the Toyota Woven City project, near Fuji. The hydrogen-free, hydrogen-free metropolitan area prototype is being used to develop integrated technologies for autonomous driving, AI, robotics and smart homes.
The ultimate goal is to network vehicles, homes and communities. The climate crisis is the greatest challenge of our time. To mitigate its effects, it is essential to limit global warming. The Volkswagen Group is clearly committed to the Paris climate targets. The entire group will be carbon neutral by 2050, including our vehicles, facilities and all processes. Here are some examples of our transformation process: local business utility vehicles and commercial vehicles on the island – such as police vehicles, emergency services and public sector fleets – are also electrified. VW will install its Elli chargers throughout the island to provide a complete charging infrastructure that will provide approximately 230 private charging stations and several public charging stations. Jost has the example of the Compact Volkswagen ID, which will be built in Zwickau from 2019. “The car is delivered to customers as a carbon neutral product.” This is possible thanks to the focus on high energy efficiency and the use of green electricity during the production phase, including the supply chain.
