Volkswagen said it is expected to surpass Tesla soon in the field of electric vehicles

The chairman of the Volkswagen Group’s trade union Bernard Osterloh (Bernd Osterloh) said in an interview recently that the company is expected to soon surpass Tesla in terms of electric vehicle production and software development .

Ostrow said: “If Tesla’s three existing plants have annual production capacity between 300,000 and 500,000 vehicles, the total production capacity is between 900,000 and 1.5 million vehicles. We are expected to reach the same level in 2023. , If not earlier.”

He said that Volkswagen’s modular electric drive matrix platform gives the company a “huge” advantage because it can build vehicles of any brand on it.

Ostrow also predicts that the “Artemis” engineering team led by Audi CEO Markus Duesmann (Markus Duesmann) will catch up with Tesla’s technological advantages. Volkswagen’s new “Car Software Organization” brings together the software operations of all car manufacturers and is a right step in this direction.

Ostrow said: “Their advantage is that they have installed their software in the car and use it to collect data. But if we install our system in our car, we will get it in a short time More data.”
