Volkswagen will suspend production of two electric vehicles due to low demand

Must read

Volkswagen plans to suspend operations at its Zwickau and Dresden factories in Germany in the first half of October. The reason behind this decision is the decrease in demand for electric cars produced in these facilities. Additionally, it is stated that the factory in Dresden is at risk of complete closure.

Volkswagen ID.3 and Cupra Born electric car models were produced in the mentioned facilities. Vehicle production will be reduced at the Zwickau plant from 2 October to 13 October. ID.3 production in Dresden will be stopped from 2 October and will restart from 16 October.

Glass Factory May Close

Volkswagen did not explain what strategy it would follow regarding the personnel working at the facilities during this period. In mid-September, it was reported that the factory in Dresden, known as the “Glass Factory”, could be closed completely. This step is considered as one of Volkswagen’s measures to reduce operating costs.

According to estimates, closing the facility in question could save the company up to 20 million euros annually. Volkswagen plans to distribute the company’s current employees to its other factories. The German brand introduced a renewed version of the ID.3 electric car in the spring.
