According to Handelsblatt, Volkswagen must produce a small electric car in Bratislava. Initially production had to take place in Germany.
According to reports, Volkswagen (VW) will produce a small electric car at the plant in Bratislava. Originally produced in Emden, Germany. The reason for the change in plans is the price, says the German daily Handelsblatt.
Handelsblatt argues that Volkswagen's Supervisory Board recently decided that the model originally produced at Emden would most likely be produced in Bratislava. According to DPA, a spokesman for the VW Supervisory Board and a corporate spokesperson do not want to comment on Thursday.
The production at Emden, with an estimated retail price of 20,000 euros, would be unprofitable in terms of labor costs in Germany, says Handelsblatt. Instead, an electric compact SUV of approximately Tiguan size should be produced at the factory. Again, this model was originally planned for the Zwickau plant, however, powered by the production of electric vehicles type ID.
