In addition to the virtual world premiere, Volkswagen's latest e-model, which will roll off the production line in Zwickau, was presented in the Transparent Factory on November 3rd - for the first time without camouflage. One goal: to fill the photo databases of major international photo agencies such as Reuters, Bloomberg and dpa, which are used to illustrate the multitude of daily reports on electro mobility.
On the other hand, the sales department used the event to invite the best e-sellers in the East and South regions and to further position the Transparent Factory among its retail partners as an attractive delivery center. In addition to the world premiere, the program also included guided tours and hands-on experiences. The development of the Dresden sales figures is very positive: with more than 5,000 deliveries, the manufactory is once again heading for a record - the previous year's result of 3,294 vehicle handovers was already exceeded at the beginning of September. After the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, this makes the Dresden site Volkswagen's second largest delivery center in Germany.
With the new ID.5, Volkswagen is expanding its successful ID. family. The company is thus accelerating the electrification of its new car fleet and is also entering a new market segment. The elegant and expressive E-SUV coupe features the new ID.Software 3.0 with, among other things, improved charging performance and voice control. Volkswagen is also taking the next step toward automated driving by using the latest generation of swarm data and driver assistance systems.
By 2030, at least 70 percent of Volkswagen's sales in Europe are to be pure electric cars, or more than one million vehicles. In North America and China, the e-car share is to be at least 50 percent. To achieve these goals, Volkswagen will launch at least one new e-car per year. CO2 emissions per vehicle are to be reduced by up to 40 percent as early as 2030. On its "Way to ZERO," the company aims to be carbon neutral by 2050 at the latest.
