CEO Herbert Diess talks of an electric car strategy that will go after Tesla’s market share, projecting sales of up to 22 million Volkswagen EVs by 2028. It’s important to note that if the EV projections are achieved, most feel other brands that are part of the Volkswagen Group will play a bigger role; Audi is showing early progress. But the execs are still saying the VW brand alone aims to build more than 20 EV models on the group’s electric vehicles platform. In 2020, the German automaker will begin selling its I.D. EVs; the VW brand lineup promises a Tesla Model S-rivaling sedan, several crossovers, a hatchback, and a reborn Microbus. While the automaker warned it would cut jobs as it speeds up the rollout of electric cars because they are less complex to build and require fewer workers, an EV evolution was not seen as positive when Volkswagen cut 7,000 jobs last March.
