    VW to sell high-volume electric cars to China.

    First high-volume VW electric car must arrive by 2020, CEO says, mostly for China

    As it tries to put the ongoing diesel-emissions scandal behind it, VW Group is focusing its future on electric cars.

    The Volkswagen brand within the sprawling German company has developed an electric-car specific platform called MEB, and has shown multiple concepts based on it.

    Those include the ID hatchback, and the ID Buzz and Budd-e, both homages to the classic VW Microbus.

    I don't know about you guys, but the idea of Volkswagen selling volume numbers of electric cars to China seems a bit like selling refrigerators to the Eskimos.

    Mind you, as China is working really hard to cut down on their air pollution, I am not too surprised that they might import electric cars to add to the many thousands they are already making for the home market.

    BTW, China has now just introduced FIVE new electric cars to this home market.

    Read about them HERE

    I find that very interesting !

    Germany selling electric cars to China ? That looks like a first.

    Mind you that is one country that needs to clean up it's act, followed by India.

    I cannot disagree with that Zathrus.

    Mind you it does seem that China are trying really hard to get rid of the fossil fuel emissions that are clogging up the air in that country.

    India, I have no clue what they are doing in this respect ?

    What I wonder is, if they are going to be sold to Britain, how good will they be, and how much they might cost if we can get our hands on them ?

    They will probably not be sold in Britain at all and even if they are they are not going to be cheap.
