New electric plant for Volkswagen in Germany

Written by Olivier Duquesne Yum

After Zwickau, Volkswagen has a second German factory for its 100% electric models on the MEB platform. First of all, ID.4 will be built in Emden (Lower Saxony).


summary :

Volkswagen already has two plants in China and two others in Germany to produce its 100% electric models. On European soil, after the site in Zwickau near the Czech border, the plant in Emden in the northwest of the country was converted to collect the identity card. The new VW site will therefore be exclusively dedicated to the electric vehicle (and the MEB platform), with a capacity of 800 cars per day.

5 factories

The manufacturer will invest about 21 billion euros up to 2026 for its electric transformation in Lower Saxony, where the head office is also located in the capital, Hanover. The new plant is part of a global project where another facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in the United States will be modernized. It will be up and running from this fall. By 2022, Volkswagen wants to build 1.2 million electric vehicles in its five locations on the MEB platform.
