Volkswagen has embarked on a new electrification strategy in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal and set a goal to sell between 2 million and 3 million fully electric vehicles a year by 2025.

If Volkswagen achieves its goal, EV sales could represent up to 25% of total global sales.

Volkswagen is planning to roll out more than 30 new battery-electric vehicles in the next decade and develop competencies in battery technology, digitalization, and automated driving, Volkswagen AG announced on June 16.

In a related move, the company is launching a mobility unit to offer products and services around ride hailing and other on-demand mobility services such as robotaxis and carsharing.

    I applaud the move but deplore why they made this move--killing people by lying about diesel pollution just turned me off of this company forever. Sad because I wanted to buy a cross blue SUV PHEV but not I'll never ever buy anything from them. If you think the holocaust survivors are stubborn just watch me resist their marketing ploys. Never again will I buy VW.
