VW looks at converting its Emden plant to build electric cars - report
Carmaker VW will consider plans to convert its factories in Emden and Hanover to build electric cars at a strategy review on November 16, report Stefan Menzel and Martin Murphy in business daily Handelsblatt. The company’s plant in Emden near the North Sea could become VW’s second location dedicated exclusively to electric mobility, and insiders told Handelsblatt there are discussions to use wind power in order to make production climate-neutral, and to add battery cell production as well. VW declined to comment.
