Global tipping point for e-mobility around 2030 – VW CEO Müller
The global shift to electric mobility will reach a critical point in a little over 10 years, according to VW head Matthias Müller. “We will see a global tipping point around 2030,” Müller said at an annual car industry summit organised by business daily Handelsblatt. Müller insisted the German car industry, and his company in particular, would play a leading role in the transformation, due to large sales volumes. “Anyone who believes the glory days of the German car industry are over is wrong,” Müller said. “We will be the ones shaping tomorrow’s mobility. We are determined to lead, not to follow.” He added that VW will also continue to develop petrol and diesel engines, as well as hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
