Driving towards a better world.

Taking charge of the future

With an eye to the future of electrification, Volkswagen has been researching and developing alternative drive solutions for over 45 years. We’ve dedicated ourselves to becoming global leaders in plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, with a vision to be the automaker that makes the electric car accessible for all.

Electric cars are powered by three main components – a battery, a converter and an electric motor. Plug-in hybrid vehicles integrate a traditional petrol motor alongside these parts that provides additional power when it’s needed as well as increased range. Both plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles produce significantly less carbon emissions than traditional petrol vehicles and have less of an impact on the environment. At Volkswagen, we firmly believe that e-mobility is the future of global transportation.

We’re on the cusp of an e-mobility revolution. And Volkswagen is leading the charge.

Volkswagen’s range of plug-in hybrid vehicles offers the best of both worlds – all the benefits of e-mobility without foregoing the performance of a petrol engine. 

Electric vehicles aren’t just better for the environment, they cost less to use. Now more than ever, it makes sense to drive an electric vehicle.

When you make the switch to an electric vehicle, you aren’t just saving on petrol and running costs – you’re saving the environment for generations to come. 

Charging and range

Charging your electric car is simple. Just plug it in to a suitable power source and it will charge until it’s full. 

ID Technology and software

The innovative battery, drive and ID technology built into our electric vehicles is all part of our pursuit to create a fleet of vehicles that drive Volkswagen into the future. 

We are committed to complying with the Paris Climate Agreement, with the goal of becoming a net carbon-neutral company by 2050. 

Our electric vision

It’s undeniable that the future of our world is electric. Volkswagen is at the forefront of electric innovation, working every day to make it smarter, more integrated and more accessible for all.
