University Volkswagen Goes Solar
Why this is Important to UVW
We believe in giving back to the community. We are not doing this to sell cars, we are doing this because it is the responsible thing to do. We want to be leaders in the automotive industry for what a dealership should be for its clients and community. With more electric vehicles becoming available from Audi and Volkswagen, we want to give our clients and neighbors peace of mind knowing that their cars, and their dealership, are being powered by renewable energy. In addition to the solar roof, we also have one of the largest sustainable green roofs in the Seattle area to collect and distribute rainwater.
The Future of EV for Volkswagen
We see the future, and electric vehicles are our future. We see that current power arrangements just aren’t sustainable long term, so sustainable power is the first major step needed to embracing our greener future. With the introduction of VW’s modular electric vehicle platform (MEB), VW is prepared to take the electric vehicle segment to a new level of popularity. The Volkswagen group has announced that they plan to spend $86 billion over the next 5 years to adapt to changes in the industry. By the end of the decade, The Volkswagen group expects to have built 26 million electric cars, along with 9 million hybrids. We are excited for this next page of VW history, and we wanted to plan accordingly.
