However, it will take a couple of years before the Gigafactory Valencia is ready. Volkswagen expects production to start only in 2026. Then with a production capacity of 40 GWh per year. It can later be expanded to 60 GWh.
PowerCo has already begun construction of a similar battery factory in Salzgitter, Germany. A week ago, the group also revealed that it will build a factory in Canada
