Going electric

The Volkswagen Group has aligned its company strategy to fully commit to electric mobility. Over the next nine years up to 75 new pure electric models will be introduced together with around 60 hybrid vehicles. All in all Volkswagen plans to sell 26 million electric vehicles by 2029. To achieve this target, the company management in Wolfsburg has earmarked roughly 33 billion euros for an enormous investment program to catapult the world's largest car producer, and, at the same time Germany's largest industrial group, into a leading position in the electric mobility market.

New buses for Berlin

"Because we love you"

New buses for Berlin

There were omnibuses in Berlin as early as 1847. However, in those days they were drawn by horses. A lot has happened since then. After 1905 the horse-drawn omnibuses were slowly replaced by motor-driven buses and in 1929 the first buses drove through the city with the BVG name. As a sort of birthday present (90 years of BVG), the BVG will now receive a complete new fleet of double deckers.
