Why is it more profitable to produce electric cars than cars with ice?

1. Minimum engine options maximum power configurations
The biggest advantage of electric vehicle manufacturers is the easily variable power inherent in electric motors.

The manufacturer can produce only a few motors, but offer up to 30 different transmission options. In short, “horsepower”, which is not the correct definition for electric motors, can be adjusted, that is, one motor can have several power options.

In turn, the manufacturer of cars with ice, to offer similar variability and be able to compete, must spend money on the development and creation of a much larger number of engines, with each engine will need its own production and Assembly line, while the manufacturer of electric vehicles is satisfied with the simplicity of design and savings on Assembly due to the smaller size of the electric motor.

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.
