“Volkswagen and e-mobility: the laggard from Wolfsburg”


Volkswagen is late in entering the Chinese market for e-cars and should quickly agree to producing electric vehicles with Anhui Jianghuai Automobile (JAC), writes Stephan Scheuer in a commentary for German business daily Handelsblatt. The company’s distribution and production network in China could help to ramp-up sales quickly, something neither German competitors Daimler nor BMW have managed so far. "China is the market of the future for e-cars for its sheer volume. VW has to hurry up to make good business in the long run. The partnership with JAC is only a start,” Scheuer writes.
