The German government is not happy with the contract of a Volkswagen for the purchase of batteries worth 43 billion US dollars or euro I do not know anymore, and it does not matter anymore. They bother so much that they will allocate 1,000,000,000 euros from the budget to help local battery production! Better than seeing that one Germany imports batteries for cars from Asia.
They want production to start in 2021.
Just by the way, it’s not just Volkswagen that wants batteries from Asia, because BMW is already buying batteries from China, from CATL manufacturers. The deal is worth a billion dollars.
