Volkswagen is expanding its global production network for electric vehicles with the launch of a new manufacturing site for the all-electric ID.4 in Emden, Germany.

Emden is now the second site for electric vehicles in Germany following Zwickau, and also joins the Chinese plants in Anting and Foshan. The firm also has sites in Chattanooga, U.S.A, and Hanover, Germany, which will also commence production later this year. The network, Volkswagen states, sees the firm on track to build up to 1.2 million all-electric vehicles a year based on the MEB platform.

Apart from the ID.4, Emden will also manufacture another model - the Aero B - from 2023. Volkswagen will also start manufacutre of the iconic ID. Buzz later in 2022 at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles in Hanover.

It will be joined from 2023 on by the ID.3 made in Wolfsburg, while a further electric vehicle - the Trinity - will then roll off the assembly line at the location starting in 2026. The Group is also investing in Braunschweig, Salzgitter and Kassel, among other things in further expansion of the existing MEB production of battery systems, rotors/stators and electric motors, while its Salzgitter location is being expanded further into a European battery hub.
