EV Transition Underway at Volkswagen

A Volkswagen factory in Zwickau, Germany, is now solely producing EVs for the automotive market, stating the last model with a combustion engine left the assembly line on Friday.

Operating since 1904, and producing more than 6 million Volkswagen cars since 1990, the Zwickau factory marks the first instance of transitioning to a completely electric vehicle production line.

A conversion phase and qualification program for all 8,000 of the plant’s employees will see them complete around 20,500 days of training over the coming weeks.


EV Volkswagen and Audi vehicles will be produced at the Zwickau factory by the end of the year.
