According to Handelsblatt, Volkswagen is expected to produce a small electric car in Bratislava. Initially, production is expected to take place in Germany.
Volkswagen (VW) is expected to build a small electric car in its Bratislava factory. It was originally made in Emden, Germany. The reason for the change of plans is the cost, said the German newspaper Handelsblatt.
Handelsblatt claims that the Volkswagen Supervisory Board recently decided that the model, which was originally manufactured in Emden, is likely to be produced in Bratislava. According to the DPA, the spokeswoman of the supervisory board VW and a representative of the corporate council did not want to comment on the information on Thursday.
Production in Emden with an estimated selling price of 20,000 euros would be uneconomical in Germany in terms of labor costs, says Handelsblatt. Instead, the electric compact SUV size of the Tiguan should be manufactured at the factory. This model was originally planned for the Zwickau factory, which is driven by the production of electric vehicles with the ID model.
