EXPORT SHIFT

EXPORT SHIFT: Volkswagen South Africa (VWSA) is sceptical about South Africa’s plans to produce electric vehicles for export to developed markets and is instead focusing on sustaining outlets for its internal combustion engine vehicles, notably the Polo, seen here being assembled at its Kariega plant. VWSA MD Martina Biene is quoted by Bloomberg as saying that Europe “won’t call on us to make battery electric vehicles” as there is enough capacity on the continent where transport costs are lower.
