The largest charging park with 500 charging points is located in Wolfsburg. The carmaker has installed similar parks for electric vehicles in Hanover, Brunswick, Salzgitter, Kassel, Emden, Osnabruck, Zwickau, Chemnitz and Dresden. Despite coronavirus pandemic, the carmaker recorded over 50,000 charging operations at its sites in the last 12 months.

Thomas Ulbrich, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Brand responsible for E-mobility, said, "As announced, 2020 marked the start of Volkswagen's major electric offensive. We successfully launched the ID.3, and are already following that up with the next model, the ID.4. Volkswagen is also making an important contribution to the urgently needed expansion of the charging infrastructure. We need significantly more charging points in Germany and Europe if electric vehicles are to establish themselves quickly. For that reason, all players from the fields of politics and industry must continue their efforts in the coming year."
