Volkswagen’s Zwickau Plant produced a record level of EVs last week

Volkswagen’s all-electric Zwickau plant set a new weekly production record and appears to be running at near full capacity.

The German-based factory produced 7,100 battery electric vehicles last week or around 1,400 units per day.

Although Volkswagen does not list its factory maximum output, if we look at an annual number, it could be around 350,000 units.

Considering all the bottlenecks and issues around production that European automakers have faced, this production rate is impressive.

The Zwickau Plant is a busy facility and produces six EV models for the Volkswagen Group.

  • Volkswagen ID.3
  • Cupra Born
  • Volkswagen ID.4
  • Audi Q4 e-tron
  • Volkswagen ID.5
  • Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron

Zwickau was not the only Volkswagen facility to celebrate a milestone this week.

The Dresden-based Transparent Factory, which produces the ID.3, celebrated 10,000 cumulative ID.3 produced.

The transition to EVs has been slow but meaningful for the German automaker.

Earlier this month, the Volkswagen brand celebrated hitting the 500,000 mark for sales of the ID brand.

Volkswagen is slightly more aggressive than other mainstream vehicle brands, especially in Europe. They are reaching 100 per cent electrification as of next year on the continent.

In terms of production, Volkswagen is planning only to produce EVs in Europe within the next ten years.
