Volkswagen is committed to moving completely to electric vehicles by the mid-2030s, but until then, an interim step makes sense while the U.S. continues to build out charging infrastructure, the new head of the brand's North American arm argues.
In an interview with Automotive News, Pablo Di Si, who is also in his first year as CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, said VW is looking hard at adding at least one plug-in hybrid to its U.S. lineup in the immediate future.
"It takes you a long time to develop a technology. If I wouldn't have any plug-in hybrid in the group, it wouldn't be an idea" worth pursuing, Di Si said this month. But because of Audi, it's a possibility.
