The first production electric vehicle bound for the US from Volkswagen is the e-Golf, which will arrive in early 2015, but beyond that, the German automaker promises to push electric like nobody else in the industry.

VW's commitment to electric vehicles comes way late, but Volkswagen definitely has the "tools" to catch up.

If VW is as serious as they say, then in 3 or 4 year's time, the German automaker could have more plug-in vehicles on the market than any other automaker.

Could...but will VW stick to its guns?

What better way to find out than to listen to Jonathan Browning, Volkswagen Group of America CEO, speak to CNBC in a "live" interview on "Squawk on the Street."

As this Browning quote shows, VW seems to still be lukewarm when it comes to electrics, so perhaps the automaker won't lead the way soon:

"Electrification won't be the only solution.  Electric vehicles will be part of the landscape, but certainly not the only part."
