Oregon and Washington Present Coordinated Strategy for VW Investment

Volkswagen Group of America (VW) is investing $2 billion over the next 10 years in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure and awareness through its new Electrify America initiative, which will kick off with an initial 30-month investment plan expected to be approved in March.

Drive Oregon recently worked with the states of Oregon and Washington to submit a coordinated regional proposal to highlight areas where we think VW investments can best strengthen the ZEV ecosystem in the Pacific Northwest over the coming 30 months.

This is just one piece in the larger regional collaboration between state agencies, utilities, automakers, charging companies, nonprofits, and others that will be necessary to support the transition to electric transportation. We hope you will stay engaged with Drive Oregon as we chart the path ahead!

The State of Oregon also wants to stay in touch with key stakeholders over the coming months. To ensure you are included in the state’s outreach work, please contact Andrew Dick at the Oregon Department of Transportation.
