BEIJING -- By 2035 half of Volkswagen Group's sales in China will be new energy vehicles (NEVs), CEO Herbert Diess told a conference in Boao, China, on Tuesday.
W intends to offer 14 electrified models in China this year.
By 2028, more than half of the Group's planned 22 million electric cars will be produced in China.
VW has joint ventures in China with FAW Group, SAIC Motor and JAC.
SAIC-VW's plant in Anting and a FAW-VW's plant in Foshan will start producing electric cars based on VW 's MEB platform next year with a combined annual production capacity of 600,000 full-electric vehicles. In addition, JAC and VW Group's Seat brand are developing a platform for smaller EVs.
