WDR / Westfälische Nachrichten

Thanks to unexpectedly strong demand, new budget e-car maker e.GO has expanded its production plans, reports public broadcaster WDR. The company aims to make up to 100,000 electric vehicles per year, considerably scaling up original plans for 20,000 cars. It said it would create 2,000 jobs in four factories in the western German city of Aachen in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, where Deutsche Post e-car subsidiary Streetscooter is also based.

The new state government launched an expert committee involving companies, universities, and ministers to make the region an e-mobility pioneer, reports regional paper the Westfälische Nachrichten.
