Volkswagen ID Crozz: The SUV Crossover Electric Vehicle

Journalists look at an Audi Aicon autonomous electric car at the Volkswagen Preview Night prior to the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show

Volkswagen (VW) has announced plans to offer an electric version of each of their 300 vehicle models by 2030.

On Monday the 11th September the German Vehicle manufacturer made this ambitious announcement, saying that they will make at least one electronic version of their near 300 models.

The announcement means that vehicles from auto manufacturers such as Audi, Seat and Skoda will have all-electric or hybrid versions.

The group plans to bring a total of over 80 new electrified models to customers by 2025, including some 50 purely battery-powered vehicles and 30 plug-in hybrids as it doubles its investment in zero-emission vehicles to 20bn euros (£18bn) in a bid to put dieselgate behind it.

Volkswagen Group has no plans to follow rival Daimler in considering changing the group's legal structure, CEO Matthias Mueller said, even as the company undergoes the biggest transformation in its history.

"Nothing can stop the transformation in our industry".

Kohli fires India to seven-wicket T20 win
In a tragic incident, a 12-year old Indian cricketer Sona Narendra died due to drowning in a hotel swimming pool in Sri Lanka . Kuldeep Yadav, who bowled his four overs for just 20 and picked up two wickets, dismissed Munaweera in the 12th over.

Unlike Volvo, which already pledged to only sell cars with electric motors from 2019, VW isn't putting ICE on ice just yet. Daimler said it would roll out two new four and six-cylinder diesel motors until then.

Volkswagen is throwing the fire power of brands such as Audi, Porsche and Skoda behind the push, aiming to overwhelm the likes of Tesla Inc. with its size and market power and transform from a battery-vehicle laggard into a leader.

Diess cited plans announced last month to produce the ID Buzz, or an all-electric vehicle hearkening back to the popular Microbus that's to hit the market in 2022.

But diesel remains in the mix - with what automakers say are better emissions controls to meet European Union standards in which cars will be tested under real-world driving conditions, as well as on test stands.

The new metal on show this year includes the highly anticipated Renault Megane RS and its rival, the Hyundai i30 N, along with a host of concepts, including BMW's Tesla-rivalling i Vision Dynamics electric vehicle.

The three German luxury carmakers were the home team and showed it with large display areas. The premium auto brand is slashing spending to free up €10 billion to develop an electric-car lineup that will comprise as many as 12 models in 2025. He added that VW is setting the scene for a final breakthrough in e-mobility.
