in 2020, Volkswagen introduce the world to the ID. brand: the new generation of pure electric vehicles from the German car manufacturer. Many considered the introduction of ID. cars as one of the most important transformations in the history of Volkswagen. This was followed by news that the German auto giant is poised to ramp up its investment in EVs and digitalization to €89 billion over the next five years. It is estimated that by 2026, one of every four cars sold will have a battery-powered electric motor.
Recently, the green deal agreed by the European Union has also encouraged major auto industry players to ramp up production of EVs in a bid to reduce global warming. A major player like Volkswagen investing a large amount in EVs will encourage other players to follow suit, contributing to lower CO2 emissions and reducing the car’s role in climate change.
VW’s ID cars are a big hit among car enthusiasts, and the Das Auto brand will take its game to another level by introducing the ID. Sky. The German car company recently unveiled the ID.
