German car manufacturer Volkswagen has stated that it will introduce 15 indigenously made models of alternative fuel vehicles in China.

The new alternative fuelled vehicles will be launched in next three to four years in order to cope with the environmental pollution which is getting out of hand in China.

Globally, China is the largest market for Volkswagen. Volkswagen Group China and its two joint ventures delivered 2.85 million units in first three-quarters.

Public Relations Manager, Volkswagen Group China, Li Xiaoxin said, "These models will be released in the next three to four years to address the environmental protection needs in Chinese market."

Volkswagen CEO Matthias Muller stated that digitalisation and environmental protection are the major factors that drive the transfer of automobile industry.

To help in the cause of environmental protection, Volkswagen has planned to launch 30 models of electric cars by 2015 in the global automobile market.
