The key facility in the electrification plan is to be the Foshan plant in Southern China, which after expansion can handle 600,000 cars annually, as well as the Qingdao and Tianjin factoreis.

Soon, Volkswagen (through FAW-Volkswagen JV) will begin production of electrified cars on the MQB platform as well as the all-electric MEB models and battery packs (in Foshan).

Prof. Dr. Jochem Heizmann, Member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group China said:

“Through this mega-factory at the South China base of FAW-Volkswagen, we are fulfilling our promise to electrify China. Foshan is an important milestone on the way to becoming a people-centric provider of sustainable mobility.”

Megafactory? So it’s a thousand times smaller than the Gigafactory?

Mega could be a million cars per year.

Or possibly a thousand times larger than the kilofactory in Freemont.

If the current US regime weren’t so interested in Making America Great Again, this mega factory could have been built in the US. Buth that would have required implementing some democratic socialism idea like a nationwide ZEV mandate.

Nah, it’s for the Chinese market.

(And it’s one of the few areas where a trade war is actually kinda justified, considering how protectionist China is about foreign car makers, while at the same time trying to launch their own in the global market…)
