Volkswagen lays out broad “New Auto” electric and autonomous vehicle strategy

Europe’s largest carmaker Volkswagen is setting more ambitious goals on the way to becoming a software-driven mobility company, and says that by 2030, every second vehicle it sells will be an electric car.

The new strategy comes hot on the heels of the latest set of fines dished out to European carmakers VW, BMW and Daimler for illegally colluding to delay the supply of clean vehicles in the wake of the 2015 Dieselgate scandal.
