First Volvo did it.

CEO at Volkswagen Matthias Mueller said that a company such as Volkswagen must be the leader and not a follower.

"Nothing can stop the transformation in our industry. And we will lead that transformation".

Volkswagen (VW) has announced plans to offer an electric version of each of their 300 vehicle models by 2030.

Unlike Volvo, which already pledged to only sell cars with electric motors from 2019, VW isn't putting ICE on ice just yet.

The Germany automaker previously had said it would spend over €10 billion before 2025 in electric vehicles.

The Crozz is rumored to be the first of the ID vehicles to be offered for sale to the United States market.

We will keep you updated though as further details come to hand on the 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc.

VW is now seeking a partner to supply it with over 50 billion euros (about $59 billion) worth of batteries, which will be used for new models based on the MEB platform for electric cars.

Müller added: "For us, the transformation of transportation and the energy transition are inseparable". With no B-pillar in the way, this provides plenty of room to see into the cabin. Meanwhile, the I.D. Buzz will be joining the line up in 2022. German giant Volkswagen is pledging to offer 23 all-electric cars by the year 2025, starting with the just-revealed ID Crozz in 2020...

By 2030, there will be at least one electrified version of each of the 300 or so Group models across all brands and markets, Volkswagen claims.

"Currently, Tesla burns a 3 digit million amount and we've got results of 12 to 13 billion euros per year, so I think we have to be realistic here", he said. The I.D. Crozz was revealed to the public for the first time on Monday.

The ID Crozz crossover is meant to meld the design of a modern day sportscar with the all terrain capability of an off-roader. "Along with fully electric vehicles, this will also include our increasingly efficient hybrid, petrol, diesel and natural gas drives".

These cars are not going convince people; they're going to enthrall them.
VW claims a range of over 500km and Volkswagen says it intends to limit the production version's top speed to 180kph.

Over the past year, it's unveiled three different Volkswagen ID electric-car concepts, two of them thinly disguised versions of future production models for 2019 and 2020. I don't know if the levitating gnome will survive the focus groups, though. The concept is based on the brand's MEB platform that also pins the other two all-electric offerings, the I.D. and the I.D. Buzz.
