Volkswagen’s Trinity plant gets green light for construction

On March 4, 2022, the Volkswagen Group Supervisory Board passed resolutions for the construction of its new Trinity plant in Wolfsburg-Warmenau. The automaker will begin construction of the new facility in early 2023.

The $2 billion company will focus on producing Volkswagen’s all-electric sports sedans. The company further revealed that it expects the new facility to be able to roll off the assembly line as early as 2026. The Trinity sedan will give Volkswagen the imperative to push the company to become a software-driven mobility provider. . A report claimed: “The all-electric sedan will also debut with VW’s highly scalable Adaptive Systems Platform (SSP).”

Daniela Cavallo, Chairman of the General and Group Works Councils, said in a statement: “Today’s decision marks a historic moment for Wolfsburg. The very roots of our company remain the engine of the Group and take on even more importance.

She added: “The Trinity plant will become the model for the existing main plant and for Volkswagen in general. We have also agreed to expand battery, charging and digitization activities here in Wolfsburg, centered on Trinity. All of this protects jobs and brings consistency to Wolfsburg’s transformation.

The new Trinity plant, which will be dedicated to the manufacture of electronic vehicles, will put Volkswagen in direct competition with the heavyweights in the field, namely Tesla. Volkswagen Chairman Herbert Diess is confident that Trinity will compete with Tesla’s Gigafactory Berlin.

Diess admitted he was confident that Tesla’s Giga factory in Berlin would produce Tesla’s specialist vehicles at “impressive speed”. Recently, the said plant also received environmental approval, but the plant still has to go through some provisions before it can start operating. Once the factory has obtained all prior approvals, Tesla will begin production of its Model Y at Giga Berlin.
