In a recent statement, Volkswagen announced its decision to produce its highly anticipated Trinity electric vehicles (EV) at the Zwickau factory. This choice follows a supervisory board meeting during which the location for this prestigious EV project was deliberated.
Volkswagen emphasized that there is no necessity to construct an additional plant in Wolfsburg Warmenau, a notable departure from earlier plans. Instead, the company's flagship Golf model will forge ahead into the electric era, remaining at its primary Wolfsburg plant.
The Trinity electric car, built upon the new SSP platform, had initially been slated for a 2026 release. However, shortly after assuming office, Chief Executive Oliver Blume opted to postpone the project by two years. This strategic decision aimed to alleviate pressure on the beleaguered software subsidiary, Cariad.
Originally, Volkswagen had entertained the idea of establishing a new factory dedicated to the Trinity model. Yet, due to delays in the development of the brand, the German automaker contemplated repurposing its Wolfsburg factory, ultimately opting for the Zwickau location.
