On its first Power Day, the Volkswagen Group presents its technology roadmap for batteries and charging up to 2030 today. The goal of the roadmap is to significantly reduce the complexity and cost of the battery in order to make the electric car attractive and viable for as many people as possible. At the same time, the Group is aiming to secure the supply of battery cells beyond 2025. In Europe alone, six gigafactories with a total production capacity of 240 GWh are to be established by the end of the decade. Volkswagen is also vigorously pursuing expansion of the public fast-charging network globally. With this in mind, cooperations have been agreed in Europe with the energy companies BP (Great Britain), Iberdrola (Spain) and Enel (Italy).

“Together with partners, we want to have a total of six cell factories up and running in Europe by 2030 thus guaranteeing security of supply”, explains Thomas Schmall, member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group for Technology, and CEO of Volkswagen Group Components, who holds the cross-brand responsibility for this technology roadmap. The new factories are expected to produce cells with a total energy value of 240 GWh per year by the time they are finally completed."
