The German manufacturer has added a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in North America in August 2022 regarding the location of a suitable electric car battery factory.
“This country offers high standards of sustainability and ideal economic conditions. The Canadian government has proven to be a strong and reliable partner,” said VW CEO Oliver Blume, quoted by Carscoops today, Monday, December 5, 2022.
Volkswagen Blume boss signed the MoU with Canadian Minister for Innovation, Science and Industry François-Philippe Champagne in Wolfsburg last Sunday, December 4, 2022.
“Today Canada and VW will continue our joint work to grow Canada’s and Germany’s clean transport sector,” Minister Champagne said.
Last August, Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz signed an MoU with Canada to secure access to minerals and shorten the supply chain for electric car production in North America.
