We’re changing the electric vehicle game

EVs are new, exciting, and most importantly fun. They shouldn’t feel like anything less. That’s why we’re changing the way EV’s are perceived with a new spin that feels more upbeat, approachable, and undeniably fun.

We’re doing good for the greater. Pushing ourselves to do our part – on our streets, in our communities, and for the world. We’re creating the world we want to live in. Knowing full well that if we want to usher in a new era of sustainability, we can’t wait for someone else to build it. We’re driving the change we want to see in our culture. Because we can’t be bystanders. We need to Be the Change.

It’s time to change perspectives, directions, and opinions. To change our actions, goals, and expectations. To change the world for the better.

And it all starts now. Come along for the ride.

We’re well on our way

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Volkswagen Group and the Canadian government is a symbolic first step in Volkswagen’s efforts to develop a complete supply chain for EV battery production, right here in Canada.”

Just one of the many exciting milestones on our way to a fun electric future for all. Check out some of our highlights and future plans on our EV hub.

Doing good for the greater

Being the people’s car means giving back to the people. Here’s how we’re driving good.

The world just got greener with ID.4

With the help of our friends at One Tree Planted, for every person who experienced the ID.4 during our Electric for Everyone Test-drive Experience, we’re planting a tree in their name. This brings us one step closer to a new, green era of electric mobility that puts our world and our people first.

Our partnership with Campfire Circle

Campfire Circle is a Canadian charity that brings laughter and joy to kids and families affected by childhood cancer – by creating in-hospital, overnight and community-based camp programs, including virtual camp-inspired programs during the pandemic. Since our partnership began in 2015, we’ve provided the camps with fleets of vehicles, a campground housing unit for their doctors and staff, and over $1 million in donations. Our staff also regularly clean and repair the camps, and run in the annual Sporting Life 10K to raise even more funds and awareness of all the good Campfire Circle can do for families across Ontario.

Celebrating those who went the Extra Distance with Volksgiving

There are so many incredible Canadians out there who do good for their communities. And we’re proud to say that many of those heroes are VW Owners. That’s why we give back to owners annually through our Volksgiving initiative. It’s our way of saying thank to those who dare to be the change.

Investing in students

We are supporting the brilliant minds who will be the future of tech. So we’re investing over $5 million in 42 Wolfsburg, a groundbreaking not-for-profit school in Germany that’s teaching students to code. We plan to continue supporting them with an annual investment of $3 million.

Building a new era of sustainability

If we want a more sustainable world, we all need to build it. Here’s how we’re ushering in e-mobility and more.

Investing in Electrify Canada

Asking Canadians to make the change to electric takes more than just building EVs. It requires a widespread infrastructure of charging stations. That’s why we’re investing in Electrify Canada, which is working to build Canada’s fastest public charging network - to make driving an EV convenient for an all-electric future.

Driving change on the road… and online

Our commitment to building a more sustainable world goes far beyond our vehicles. That’s why we’re doing our part online as well. The internet has a digital carbon footprint, determined by the amount of data embedded in the digital media we interact with. So we’ve created a new, more carbon-efficient browsing experience to help our website visitors surf more sustainably.
