German automotive giant Volkswagen has stated that it plans to launch 30 new electric vehicles by the year 2025.
VW CEO Matthias Muller made the announcement as part of his company's new 'Together - Strategy 2025' game plan, which aims to get VW out of the mire that is the Diesel Gate Scandal.
Muller's electrification plans are not unexpected as the VW CEO has been indicating in recent times his commitment to switch towards electrification and automated cars.
Muller said, "Volkswagen has always enriched the lives of millions of people all over the world with its brands and products. Our aspiration is to continue that success story and play a leading role in shaping auto-mobility for future generations, too."
"This will require us - following the serious setback as a result of the diesel issue - to learn from mistakes made, rectify shortcomings and establish a corporate culture that is open, value-driven and rooted in integrity."
The Volkswagen group aims to sell two to three million electric cars by 2025, which is around 20-25 percent of its sales volume.
