The Ukrainian invasion caused major problems for VW. In addition to building VW and Skoda models, the Kaluga plant also produces 1.6-litre four-cylinder engines and wiring harnesses. The latter created a major problem for VW, as every existing car, EV or not, needs a wiring harness. This issue has now been resolved.

As far as battery packs go, VW is in a good position. According to Automotive News EuropeDiess said he is confident it can secure enough batteries to supply its EV production through 2025.

“Are there enough batteries? Probably not. Are there as many batteries as we ordered? Yes, sure,” Diess said.
