VW, FAW partner on e-mobility, autonomous driving
Reuters | 2018/7/13

FRANKFURT -- Volkswagen AG agreed to cooperate with China's FAW Group and the China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles Research Institute on technologies including e-mobility, connectivity and autonomous driving.

VW said on Tuesday it had signed memorandums of understanding with the two groups during a visit by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang to Germany.

Volkswagen aims to sell around 1.5 million new energy vehicles in China in 2025.

To reach the goal, it plans to roll out around 40 locally made electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids under the VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat brands as well as under a new joint venture with JAC announced on Monday.

"By 2022 Volkswagen will jointly with its partners in China provide around 15 billion euros for future topics such as e-mobility, autonomous driving, digitalization and new mobility services," it said.
