VW Group's factory in Zwickau, Germany, is being converted to build up to 330,000 EVs a year for the VW, Audi and Seat brands. It will be the first in a global network of plants making full-electric cars for the group, which aims to shift its entire fleet to battery propulsion by 2040.
VW says it may offer European customers the chance to place a deposit on a new I.D. full-electric car in the first half, ahead of the model’s market launch in early 2020. Tesla introduced the concept of pre-bookings with the Model 3.
