Volkswagen plans to convert factories in Emden and Hanover to EV plants by 2022. Along with a plant in Zwickau, this will give VW three plants that produce EVs.

“We are moving at full speed into the production of EVs. Emden and Hanover are to be further model plants in Germany. Together with Zwickau, they will form the largest network for the production of EVs in Europe,”  Board Member Gunnar Kilian said.

The plant in Emden will make EVs from 2022 onward. Hanover will produce versions of the I.D. Buzz family from ‘2022 onward, as well as standard vehicles. The production of non-electric vehicles at the two plants will be transferred to other factories. Volkswagen has guaranteed employment for workers through 2028 for the two factories.
