Process of transformation

According to its official site, Volkswagen shared the latest result of its deliveries. In fact, the automotive giant drove forward its transformation into a sustainable, software-centric mobility group in 2021. The company approximately doubled its BEV deliveries year-on-year to 452,900 units. These now account for 5.1 percent of total deliveries, up from 2.5 percent in the previous year.
