Volkswagen’s radical strategy: put everything on electricity

Volkswagen has set itself the goal of a possible profitable mass production of electric vehicles in the amount of 80 billion euros (91 billion us dollars) — a feat that no automaker has not even reached.

If Volkswagen realizes its ambitions to become a world leader in the field of electric vehicles, this will happen thanks to a radical and risky rate. The German giant placed a bet on 80 billion euros (91 billion us dollars) and the possibility of profitable mass production of electric vehicles — a feat that no automaker has achieved. So far, the plans of most major automakers have been one major goal: to protect profits from expensive cars with ice and to replenish their range and fleet with enough zero-emission vehicles to meet environmental standards.

Tesla Model S and X were created a long time ago, but they continue to be the standard of electric vehicles

“There will be no updates to Model X or Model S, only a number of minor current changes” — this short statement by Elon Musk caused a storm of gloomy emotions among Internet users.

“It’s like planes,” said Rebecca Lindland (Rebecca Lindland) from rebeccadrives.com, Model S and Model X were created a long time ago, but they continue to be the standard of electric vehicles. Lindland believes that the car is a commodity, not a subject of self-expression, so over time customers will notice increasingly long gaps between model upgrades, especially when it comes to self-driving car parks owned by corporations rather than individuals, so it is likely that cars will no longer be fashion.

Used batteries from electric vehicles can disrupt the energy sector and create value for energy storage

The battery does not expire after it has already exhausted its initial use in an electric vehicle. Batteries have great potential for reuse in stationary energy storage systems. In addition, by reducing the cost of energy storage, they can help to integrate more renewable energy sources into the network.

Lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles, which are usually designed for a decade (8 years or mileage up to 160,000 km). But even after 10 years of operation in electric vehicles, batteries can be reused in markets that require stationary energy storage with 100-300 cycles per year. Alternative re-use is mass utilization, which is possible in most of the regions in accordance with the rules of occupational health and safety, or disposal, which may make sense for battery manufacturers who want to get valuable metals, such as cobalt and Nickel, and which can achieve competitive costs for processing.
