It is true that the greener the electricity mix, the greener electric mobility is. According to the eco-balance published by Volkswagen, an ID.3 powered exclusively with green electricity already has a better carbon balance than a comparable vehicle with a combustion engine – starting at around 56,000 kilometres. With the current European electricity mix, this happens at around the 125,000 kilometre mark. The Volkswagen brand has set itself the goal of – by 2030 – reducing the average carbon emissions of the European fleet by around 40 percent compared to 2018. The electricity needed to operate an ID. accounts for half its carbon footprint. To neutralise this, Volkswagen is launching a two-pronged approach to secure the necessary amounts of green electricity
All-green electric: The ID. Family goes carbon-neutral
Volkswagen has committed itself to the Paris climate agreement. Which is why the company delivers ID. Family vehicles to customers with a carbon-neutral balance. In order that electric vehicles remain carbon-neutral during their usage phase, they must be charged with green electricity. To ensure that this is in good supply, Volkswagen supports investments in the generation of additional green electricity.
