Way to zero

Imagine if how we moved meant reaching our destination without leaving a footprint

--:--


Volkswagen, Ireland’s bestselling car brand, is leading the way to a quieter, cleaner future. And today, we are faced with perhaps the greatest challenge in the history of mobility: we are assuming responsibility for our share of carbon emissions. We want everyone to participate in this movement – by being able to choose from innovative drive systems. 

Whether it's our all-new, all-electric, net carbon-neutral ID.3 and ID.4 models1 or our broad range of Plug-in Hybrids, we will help you find your own very personal path to lower emissions. Only by doing this will we all reach our common goal. We call that journey Way to Zero. And it starts here.

Delivered with a net carbon-neutral balance

The VW ID.3 in front of a field

With fast charging and long ranges of up to 540 KM1 with the ID.3 or up to 500 KM1 with the ID.4, you can take a first step towards electric acceleration. Bringing us all closer to a brighter, sustainable future. 

Both the all-new ID.3 and the all-new ID.4 are not just produced with a net carbon-neutral balance but are also delivered to you with a net carbon-neutral balance.

Manufacture and delivery of the ID.3 and ID.4 to the retailer are independently certified as net carbon-neutral by TUV Nord.  Net carbon-neutrality is achieved through a combination of both emission reduction and off-setting unavoidable emissions.  You can download the TUV Nord certificate for ID.3 hereOpens an external link and you can download the TUV Nord certificate for ID.4 hereOpens an external link. This independent certification is audited and reconciled quarterly.  It excludes use and life-cycle post-handover at the retailer.

For production, we rely on energy efficiency and the use of green electricity to avoid emissions wherever possible. In the meantime, the share of emissions during the manufacturing phase that are unavoidable in the short term will be successively reduced and offset through certified climate projects.

As the first climate protection project, we are supporting our partner Permian Global in the Kantigan Mentaya Project in protecting 149,800 hectares of Indonesian rain forest, which absorbs large quantities of CO2.

And after delivery? We help you to drive your ID.3 with low carbon emissions over the long term.

¹ Predicted range for going through cycles in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) on chassis dynamometer (no series status). WLTP range values for standard vehicles may vary depending on equipment. In practice, the actual range varies depending on driving style, speed, use of convenience/auxiliary equipment, outside temperature, number of passengers/additional load, and topography. 

Very diverse: our powertrain technologies

The future of mobility should be free of emissions. And not just for some, but for all. On the way to achieving this, we need diverse powertrain technologies that offer more performance in combination with reduced consumption. And which are the best possible proof that everyone can make a contribution in their own way.

Delivered with a net carbon-neutral balance: the fully-electric ID.4

As well as powering the all-new ID.3, our unique MEB platform is the innovative driving concept that powers our all-new fully-electric SUV, the ID.4.

The MEB platform not only ensures a powerful, enjoyable drive, it also allows for exceptional space within the interior, thanks to the innovative shape and placement of the battery along the base of the SUV.

You can choose either a 52 kWh battery or a 77 kWh battery depending on your driving requirements. Like the all-new ID.3, the all-new ID.4 is delivered with a net carbon-neutral balance.   

Manufacture and delivery of the ID.4 to the retailer are independently certified as net carbon-neutral by TUV Nord. You can download the TUV Nord certificate for ID.4 here Opens an external link. This independent certification is audited and reconciled quarterly.  It excludes use and life-cycle post-handover at the retailer.
