VW Aims To Release World’s First High-Volume Electric Car

As part of its principled shift away from diesel vehicles towards electrics following the diesel emissions cheating scandal (or, more likely, as part of its image rehabilitation strategy), Volkswagen recently revealed that it is now intending to release the world’s first high-volume, mass market electric car. The purported model is intended to be a competitor to the Tesla Model 3 and to GM’s Chevy Bolt — going by comments made by company reps anyways. No exact pricing has been revealed as of yet for the currently theoretical mass market offering.Using new 48-volt onboard power supply technology that will deliver a real-world range of at least 186 miles, the unnamed vehicle is understood to be part of an innovative plan by newly installed Volkswagen CEO, Dr Herbert Diess, to improve the brand’s image.
