TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2019 /CNW/ - This morning, Volkswagen Canada brought together innovative thought leaders across various fields to speak at the Volkswagen Leadership Forum, an initiative aligned with Volkswagen Canada's move to an emissions-free future. Conversation was driven by commonly posed questions from Canadian consumers relevant to e-mobility, with a focus on cost, infrastructure and environmental benefits.
Included in the panel was Volkswagen Group Canada President and CEO, Daniel Weissland, who spoke about Volkswagen Canada's initiative to invest in the future of mobility and expand production of electric vehicles worldwide on a massive scale.
Volkswagen Canada's historical roots lie in the idea of bringing the future to the average person, in the form of affordable motor vehicles. Today, more than 80 years later, it is embarking on a new version of that mission: transforming the way Canadians get around, in a sustainable way.
