The automotive giant Volkswagen has confirmed it aims to sell 22mn fully-electric vehicles during the next ten years with 70 different models planned, according to Autocar.

As part of its 2017 Roadmap E plan, Volkswagen set an initial aim of 50 electric vehicles by 2030 and hopes that by 2025 the company’s fleet CO2 footprint will be approximately 30% lower than in 2015.

Following the release of the first two electric vehicles, the Audi E-tron and Porsche Taycan, Volkswagen confirmed it had received 20,000 expressions of interest for the vehicles.

By expanding the total number of electric models, it is expected that the projected number of fully-electric vehicles will rise considerably from 15mn to 22mn and consist of around 40% of the group’s vehicle fleet.

With difficult CO2 targets to meet, Vokswagen boss, Herbert Diess, confirmed that the company’s aims aligned with the Paris Agreement in its bid to make Europe CO2 neutral by 2050.

Diess commented: “This supertanker is picking up speed and is becoming faster and more agile. VW is evolving from carmaker to software company.”
