The Volkswagen brand has a new and very ambitious target of 80 percent fully electric vehicle sales in Europe by 2030.

Their latest model to unveil in camouflage near-production format was the ID.7. It is being referred to by the international media as their new Passat-sized electric saloon. And the we expect to see the fully production ready model unveiled later this month (March ).

In addition to the all-new ID.7, their first ID model, the ID.3 launched in 2019, has just been given a face-lift, and it also gets software upgrades.

Volkswagen will also launch an all-electric version of the Tiguan SUV in 2025. And watch out for the ID.1 and ID.2 (names to be confirmed ), two new entry-level electric cars, one a hatchback and the other a crossover.

This is according to the man who heads-up the VW brand’s new ‘Mobility’ business, Thomas Ulbrich. This promise is a very tough ask, as last year, their fully electric car sales accounted for just over 10 percent of total Volkswagen passenger car sales.

Ulbrich has said that the Volkswagen brand has the more ambitious target than any of the other VW Group brands, such as Audi, Skoda and Seat/ Cupra.

The main focus by far with their plans for the very ambitious targets will be on European sales. The Volkswagen production lines free of interruption and their dealer networks across the continent will be key to their strong desire to succeed.
