Leading the way in electric

Our future is electric. Discover how Volkswagen is leading the way to a more integrated, more intelligent, more sustainable future.

Realising the future

It’s our social responsibility to create vehicles and services that provide a genuine benefit to both people and the environment. We’re dedicated to exploring eco-conscious possibilities and turning them into reality with clean production, recycling and eco-fuel alternatives.

Fuel for thought

Our committed approach to ensuring a sustainable future is evident in every vehicle we produce. It’s our mission to keep our carbon footprint at a minimum, which means keeping a close eye on energy consumption per vehicle and improving our energy efficiency, water consumption waste for disposal, and CO2 emissions.

Rethinking recycling

An important contributor to reducing negative environmental impact is through the way we reuse our materials. Recycling is essential to our process, from the development phase of a new model to the end of a vehicle’s life cycle. We are constantly enhancing our recycling methods, processes and technologies.

The ID range

Our ID. models mark the start of a new era of electric mobility: intelligent, innovative and sustainable. And above all: for everyone. Because a new idea can only make a difference when everyone can be a part of it.

The ID. Range is not available in New Zealand.

The ID.3 is the first of our next generation electric cars, setting new benchmarks for performance, comfort and design. Welcome to the future of driving. Planned New Zealand arrival date – TBC.

ID. 4 & ID.4 GTX
For informational purposes only.

Built to redefine the future of driving, the ID.4 & the ID.4 GTX combine the flexibility of an SUV with the sustainability and driving experience you only get with electric. We hope to see these models in NZ in the not too distant future.

ID.5 & ID.5 GTX

The ID.5 is the first E-SUV coupé from Volkswagen. The new ID.5 and the sporty ID.5 GTX with dual-motor all-wheel-drive inspire with expressive design, long-distance capability and the latest software generation. We hope to see these models in NZ in the not too distant future.

Whether you need to move seven people or carry large items, the detachable seats allow you to best utilise space. Hybrid power provides you with low emissions and the range assurance you need to tackle any long journeys ahead. 

Clean Car Programme 

On Sunday 13th June 2021, the Government announced new measures to take action on reducing transport emissions to help meet New Zealand’s 2050 carbon neutral target. Two initiatives will be put in place: The Clean Car Discount and the Clean Car Standard. 

The Clean Car Programme only applies to new purchases of Battery electric vehicles and Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles from 1st July 2021, and to CO2 emission vehicles from 1st January 2022.
