In a recent interview, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Volkswagen said that the transition to electric cars will make cars much more expensive and difficult for people with low incomes.
He noted that the group has a clear goal — to make electric cars more affordable for the General population, but to keep prices at the same level with the fuel cars is quite difficult.
The statement sounds a little strange, given the recent review of the company that the cost of a hatchback I. D. will be similar to a diesel Golf. The impression that such statements, the company fills the price of its electric vehicles, advance warning of their high cost.
The head of VW warns that the current pricing of the car will change and not in favor of the consumer if these cars will be equipped with electric motors.
The price increase is inevitable in the segment of small electric cars, especially in the more rigid framework to reduce harmful emissions by 37.5% by 2030, which recently entered into force in the EU.
Recall, according to a recent study by Deloitte electric vehicles can cost as much as petrol and diesel cars by 2021.
