In addition to its own T model range and the ID. Buzz, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (VWCV) will also produce three fully electric D-SUV models for other brands within the Group
With a €680m investment Hannover plant is being developed into a multi-brand site and to facilitate this VWCV is building a new production line at the plant. This will speed up Hannover’s shift towards electric vehicle production with the fully electric ID. Buzz due to roll off the production line in 2022.
“Our main plant in Hannover is becoming the production site for three completely new premium electric vehicles in the Group”, explains Dr Carsten Intra, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. “These D-SUVs are genuine flagship projects: premium, 100% electric and highly automated. Today’s decision by the Volkswagen supervisory board is thus an important milestone for our high-tech site and a great show of faith in the productivity of our team. We were able to secure this decision in favour of our location with our assured efficiency and top level of production quality. My thanks are due today to every one of our colleagues whose work made this pioneering decision possible”, Intra continued.
