The Volkswagen Group (VW) saw its electric vehicle (EV) sales double in 2021.

That’s according to its yearly report, in which it revealed that more than 450,000 EVs were sold, accounting for 5.1% of total deliveries.

VW boasted good sales across Europe and the US, with its number of cars delivered in China quadrupling to more than 92,000.

The company is planning to invest €52 billion (£43.3bn) into electrifying its portfolio during the next four years.

In total, the company sold more than 8.8 million vehicles worldwide, although chip shortages did see this number dip by 4.5% from the previous year.

Head of Sales, Christian Dahlheim, said: “The doubling of our battery-electric volumes and the high demand for all our vehicles clearly show that we are on the right track. This is something we will build on in the current year and continue to drive forward our transformation.”
