Europe’s largest car manufacturing complex is launching a retraining campaign to train and develop production employees in e-mobility. The Volkswagen brand is thus forging ahead with converting its German plants to the production of electric vehicles.

Following on from the Zwickau and Emden passenger car plants, the Wolfsburg factory will also become an electric vehicle factory over the next few years.

Wolverhampton’s streets will now be extra clean and green thanks to a quartet of zero emission road sweepers. The four new battery electric vehicles (BEVs) have replaced old diesel-powered sweepers as part of City of Wolverhampton Council’s fleet electrification programme and commitment towards a greener city.

The BEVs will offer quiet, efficient and emission free sweeping of pedestrian areas, including the city centre and the city’s road system, throughout the year.
