Volkswagen raises forecast for electric car production

Tierr@_de_N@die: 1 million of electric cars per year as soon as the end of 2023. It means 2 years earlier than the previously announced date by VW. Definitely, the electric change it is going to happen much faster than forecasted.

Those numbers are a stark contrast to this year’s production of more than 70,000 e-autos and last year’s 50,000. Volkswagen is planning to raise its production and sales numbers by introducing the ID.3, a battery model the company says will have the low price and longer range needed to transform such cars from a niche product to one with mass acceptance. The ID.3 base model will cost under 30,000 euros ($33,500) and travel 330 to 550 kilometers (205 to 340 miles) on a single charge.
