And creating a comprehensive charging infrastructure promptly – in cities and on highways – will be critical to success,” said Müller. “I’m convinced this wish succeed if politicians, the energy industry, and automakers work in harness.”

But VW isn’t done with the internal combustion locomotive. Although it’s convinced that electric drive is the future, current technology requisite still be used to bridge the gap to the future. The group continues to work on increasing the proficiency and cleanliness of diesel engines, while at the same time improving gas and natural gas engines.
