Volkswagen to decide on an eastern European battery plant in 2022

Volkswagen plans to take a decision in the first half of the next year on the location for a planned battery cell plant in eastern Europe, the automaker said on Monday.

The automaker earlier this year outlined plans to construct six large battery cell factories throughout Europe by the end of the decade, with Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic in the operating for one of them to be opened in 2027.

The automaker said that it was still preparing to firmly settle on a location for the plant in the first six months of next year.

“As you know, what has to be taken into account for this decision are the nation’s respective conditions, the economic environment, the e-mobility strategy, and the subsidy framework,” a spokesperson for the company said.
