    Volkswagen starts factory production of electric car it says is 'accessible to millions'

    • A ceremony held at Volkswagen's Zwickau plant was attended by CEO Herbert Diess and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
    • Some of the automotive industry's major players are now making moves in the electric vehicle sector.
    A ceremony, held at Volkswagen's Zwickau plant, was attended by CEO Herbert Diess and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, among others.

    In a speech, excerpts of which were published online, Diess said that the ID.3 would "make an important contribution to the breakthrough of e-mobility."

    In an announcement on its website, Volkswagen described its "electric offensive" as "picking up speed." The ID.3 is set to be launched "almost simultaneously" in European markets , with the basic version marketed at less than 30,000 euros ($33,487) in Germany.

    The Zwickau facility is currently undergoing a conversion from being a 100% internal combustion engine factory to one that produces only electric vehicles. Volkswagen is putting around 1.2 billion euros into the site's re-development and says that from 2021 it will have the capacity to produce 330,000 all-electric vehicles annually.


    The German car maker is planning to launch "almost 70 new electric models" by 2028. In March, it said it would spend over 30 billion euros on the electrification of its vehicle portfolio by 2023.

    Alongside firms such as Elon Musk's Tesla, some of the automotive industry's major players are now making moves in the electric vehicle sector.

    The Hyundai Motor Group recently said it would launch 23 battery electric vehicles over the next few years.

    And the USA market will be the last to receive any.
