Volkswagen plans to build 36,000 charging points in Europe by 2025, 11,000 of which will be built by the VW brand itself. The German automaker made a not-so-subtle dig at the Federal German government for failing to make significant progress in infrastructure for electric mobility.
The VW Group itself intends to invest a total of 250 million euros in building up charging infrastructure. In this way, the Group intends to help electromobility achieve a rapid breakthrough. 11,000 of the charging points will be installed by the core VW brand at Volkswagen locations and at the approximately 3,000 VW dealers in larger cities. Around 4,000 charging points for employees will be allocated to the locations, many of which, according to the company, will be publically accessible.
