VW’s Four Affordable Electric Cars

Christian Senger, head of the Volkswagen AG’s marque electric-car project announced a few goals and advancements in Shanghai this week, while the brand revealed its first battery-powered crossover named “I.D. Crozz.” By 2018, VW hopes to have small battery-powered vehicles on the Chinese market and more globally shortly thereafter. Altogether, VW’s battery-powered I.D. line will include two SUVs, a sedan, and a hatchback, and as Senger affirms, at prices similar to those of combustion engine vehicles. Further, through its Audi nameplate, they plan to debut a luxury battery-powered crossover in 2019, the E-tron. As the electric car market grows—and continues to be dominated by Tesla and Chevy—Volkswagen AG has some challenging roads ahead.
