VW Press Conference: The carbon-neutral, electric ID
At a press conference in Dresden on 15 February 2019, Volkswagen provided insights to international journalists with regard to its strategy for sustainable e-mobiliy. The ID will be Volkswagen’s trailblazer in terms os sustainable e-mobility. It is the first electric car of the Group which, on balance, will be CO2-neutral throughout its lifetime if charged with green energy.
“The decision by Volkswagen to massively invest in e-mobility and related infrastructure has enormous implication for the entire industry and beyond.
If Volkswagen decides to become carbon-neutral in its production, as is happening here, right now, today, as Volkswagen decides to bet on e-mobility, there is a huge probability that the entire industry will accelerate its shift in that direction”
