VW Pours Money Into Development Of Electric Trucks, Technology

Volkswagen's truck subsidiary is putting some serious money into its efforts to build electrically-powered trucks and buses.

Volkswagen, which made a promise as part of its Dieselgate settlement that it would make as many as 30 new electric models by 2025, has brought its truck divisions into the mix. As the automaker pushes ahead with its electrification plan, it has announced that its Truck and Bus Division will invest $1.7 billion in new tech.

Tech will include electric drivetrains, autonomous systems

That technology is slated to include electric drivetrains, independent systems, and cloud-based software, Andreas Renschler, chief of truck and bus, outlined in an interview, at its Hamburg headquarters.

Navistar, VWís U.S. affiliate, will use some of the systems, while the automakerís MAN and Scania divisions plan to deliver their electric bus systems to European cities next year. They will also add biodiesel, hybrids and natural gas versions to their lineups.
