The Tesla company is the largest electric car company on the planet and was recently valued at US$1 trillion for the first time in history. But this electric car empire is catching the attention of companies like Volkswagen.
According to the planning of the German automaker, in five years, there will be a Volkswagen electric-car model that will be able to fight directly with the models developed by Tesla.
To turn this dispute into reality, Volkswagen is building a new factory that should be ready in 2026. The Trinity will be developed in this new factory, an electric car that will bet on the sedan-coupé model
Located in Wolfsburg, Germany, Volkswagen’s new factory intends to offer electric car models with the same performance as vehicles produced by Tesla.
With a production capacity of up to 250,000 cars a year, Volkswagen’s new factory for electric vehicles could be responsible for up to ⅓ of the German automaker’s entire vehicle production.
In addition to promising a dispute with Tesla models, the new Volkswagen factory will be installed just 250 km from a Tesla factory in Germany, located in Grünheide. At the German unit at the Tesla factory, which is in the final stages of installation, up to 500,000 vehicles powered by electricity may be produced.
