Thumbs up for Volkswagen. This automaker is the only one who is thinking ahead on dealer profitability around the world. Nothing will surprise them in this industry movement toward EVs.

Volkswagen has big plans. Just last month it approved $40 billion spending plan to become a world's leader in EVs. Plans or dreams?

Did you just express your doubt about Volkswagen? When it comes to this company, the success is guaranteed. Plans today,  done thing tomorrow.

So.....very....slow.... This is why we need hard targets set by policymakers. No more ICEVs allowed in this city, state, country by 2030 or 2035.

Another step forward for VW. Thanks to this company, 17 largest US cities will have 2,800 new EV charging stations by 2019.

It seems to me like VW is trying to compensate its mistake from 2015 when this company was involved in diesel emission cheating scandal.

Yes they made a mistake but they are doing their best to make it up. One of their next challenges is motorsport. VW is working on electric Pikes Peak programe. Since World RX Global Rand American-based Global Rallycross Championship have indicated that they will introduce an electric category, VW is looking for potential RX electrification.
