Frankfurt Motor Show: VW ID Crozz II & Skoda Vision E II concepts

Experience 360 degrees of Magna at IAA Frankfurt

Until it admitted two years ago to cheating on USA diesel emissions tests, Volkswagen (VW) had been slow to embrace electric cars and self-driving technology.

BMW Group introduced the i3 compact electric auto in 2013 and today, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the company unveiled its future steps in the world of electromobility.

A leaked slide from a VW presentation about the upcoming vehicles shows the company has 4 new EV models coming out under the VW brand the next few years, and several others under the Audi, Porsche, and other brains owned by the corporation.

"We must continue to rigorously put the future pact into effect", he said. Volkswagen are still exploring different way to meet their target but it has been suggested that about a quarter of all of the new vehicles manufactured by the group could be fully-electric. It says all its vehicles will be ready to take any powertrain - battery electric, plug-in hybrid or EfficientDynamics (BMWSpeak for its efficiency-oriented ICE powerplant range). VW expects up to one in four of its new models to be all-electric by that time, and plans to purchase over 150 gigawatt-hours of lithium-ion batteries to power all of those cars.

VW is the first major auto manufacturer to make this kind of commitment to electric vehicles. All three vehicles will be built on the company's upcoming Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB). The company's board of directors was opposed, however, so electric cars have seen little love from VW until now.

Hurricane Harvey's effect on gas prices easing; Irma unlikely to raise cost
After Harvey knocked out a quarter of the U.S.'s refining capacity, gas prices increased across the country. In Maine, the average price also was $2.73 per gallon, up 1.6 cents from the previous week.

By 2025, the company estimated that one in four of all of its vehicles could be powered exclusively by electricity, equating to up to three million cars a year.

"We want to reach the maximum speed ourselves, we don't need quotas for that", he told Reuters. Underscoring that similarity, Volkswagen, like BMW, employs the anomalous "four-door coupe" term to describe this latest CROZZ, and characterized this version as closer to production than its predecessor.

The next instalment in Volkswagen's ID family is expected to be a large saloon, which is tentatively planned to be unveiled at the 2018 Geneva motor show.

The world's largest carmaker Volkswagen has pledged to invest billions of dollars in the development of new electric vehicles and present less than 15 years, by 2030, elektroversiya all of their models.
