New delivery record for Volkswagen Group in 2018

11/01/2019
With 10.83 million vehicles delivered throughout the world, 0.9 percent more than in 2017, the Volkswagen Group set an all-time record. In many markets of the world, South America, Europe, the USA and China, both the deliveries and in some cases the market shares of the Volkswagen Group grew. With successful product offensives, the Group brands were able to more than compensate for the risks in individual regions such as the general economic uncertainty in China and the adverse effects of the WLTP changeover in Europe. Especially the Group’s new SUV models were strong growth drivers. The Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Škoda, Seat, Porsche and Lamborghini brands all set new deliveries records.

Electrifying World Premiere: Volkswagen offers First Glimpse of Mobile Charging Station

07/01/2018
At the turn of the year, Volkswagen is offering a glimpse of the company’s future mobile quick charging station. It can be set up flexibly and independent of the power supply wherever it is needed: for example, in public parking lots in the city, on company premises, or as a temporary charging point at large-scale events. The mobile charging station works according to the principle of a power bank – which is familiar to many people with smartphones – but for electric vehicles instead. The charging capacity of up to 360 kWh enables up to 15 e-vehicles, including members of Volkswagen’s new ID. family,1 to be charged in stand-alone operation. Thanks to quick charging technology, the charging process2 only takes 17 minutes on average. If the energy content of the integrated battery set is less than 20 percent, the depleted charging station is simply exchanged for a charged one. If, however, it is permanently attached to the power supply with up to 30 kW via alternating current, the battery pack perpetually recharges itself. In case the charging process is based on renewable power supply, the charging station furthermore allows the temporary storage of sustainably generated power, such as solar or wind energy – and therefore CO2-neutral mobility.

“Electric charging for fleets” compendium for fleet managers

17/12/2018
The Volkswagen Group has collaborated with THE MOBILITY HOUSE to create a gen-eral overview that answers the most important points for implementing an EV charging infrastructure at a company.
 
Do fleet managers need a degree in electrical engineering to build a successful charging infrastructure – or is it enough to simply have the right partner on board? Every fleet manager has probably wondered what infrastructure their company would need before introducing electric vehicles. As well as the technical equipment, wiring and layout of charging stations, this includes topics such as running costs, construction and installation costs as well as building permits. Plenty is happening in this field at the moment, particularly on the legal side, so it is all the more important to call on specialist expertise in order to avoid planning mistakes and wrong decisions from the very beginning. In addition, nobody should have to miss out on potential public funds because they lack the necessary knowledge.
