By the way in which of asserting its strategic funding plans, Volkswagen revealed additionally that in 2023 it will begin the manufacturing of a brand new all-electric automobile on the Emden plant in Germany.

The location is currently preparing for manufacturing of the ID.4 (from 2022), as a second plant in Germany (after Zwickau), and sixth globally (moreover two locations in China and one within the U.S.).

After the ID.4, Emden will begin manufacturing of a brand new four-door mannequin “Aero”, about which we do not know a lot.

“On the Volkswagen’s model plant in Emden, the transformation can be progressing quickly: whereas the development work for the swap to electrical mobility is totally on observe, the second electrical mannequin for the positioning has now been outlined. Along with the ID.4, the four-door all-electric Volkswagen Aero is scheduled to be manufactured there from 2023.”

It is likely to be associated to the Volkswagen ID. Vizzion (sedan) and Volkswagen ID. Space Vizzion (station wagon) ideas, particularly since manufacturing of Passat can be moved to Bratislava, Slovakia (Skoda is shifting manufacturing of the Excellent from Kvasiny, Czechia).

Right here isn’t any “ID.” prefix, however we’d not be shocked to see an ID.Aero announcement within the close to future.
