VW launches dedicated EV tab online

Volkswagen UK’s homepage has added a new section dedicated to electric vehicles.

This is part of the brand’s commitment to the electric revolution (see bodyshop magazine’s December issue for an exclusive feature on this).

It is the first time the brand’s customer website has hosted an entire section devoted purely to electric vehicles and highlights just how important the EV revolution is to Volkswagen.

In the new section – found at www.volkswagen.co.uk/electric-hybrid – users can also learn about the range of electric cars on the way from the brand, such as the all-electric ID. family of models including those previewed by the ID., ID. CROZZ, ID. BUZZ, and ID. VIZZION concept cars. These forthcoming production models will all be based on the Volkswagen Group’s new MEB platform with the first model – a hatchback based on the ID. concept.

Volkswagen UK electric vehicles product manager Joe Laurence said, ‘Gathering all of our electric car information together in one easy-to-access place on the Volkswagen website is really going to help as more and more people become interested in the brand’s electric future.

‘In typical Volkswagen style, we have made the information in the new ‘Electric Cars’ section as clear and easy to follow as the rest of our website, and I very much hope it will help to demystify EVs.’

Leigh Edwards, digital manager for Volkswagen UK, added, ‘Electric cars are not just a topic for the future – they are here right now. There is increased focus across the industry, so we wanted to make it even easier for customers to become aware of our electric models, how to charge them, the potential cost savings they offer, and also to start showcasing the future ID. range.’
