TÜV Nord conducts annual inspections to verify Volkswagen Naturstrom® sources. It certifies that Volkswagen Naturstrom® and electricity purchased from eco-power plants in Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland is always carbon-neutral. Volkswagen Naturstrom® is generated 100% from renewable sources.
Volkswagen Naturstrom® is a product of Elli, a Volkswagen Group brand. Volkswagen has already committed to the European Green Deal for a sustainable EU economy, and is ready to play its part in achieving this goal. All the Group's activities are set to be 100% carbon-neutral and net emission-free no later than 2050. We are also aware that e-mobility and the move to renewable energy will require a holistic approach and smart new solutions.

Diesel vs. e-car during the vehicle’s use phase: overall energy comparison
It depends on the electricity mix – this has a major impact on the carbon footprint of an e-car. If you want to be sure, you should charge your e-car with green electricity. That's why we offer a green electricity contract with Volkswagen Naturstrom®, giving you the confidence that your e-car will be climate-friendly.
To compare different vehicle types, we need to consider carbon emissions in three phases:
The manufacture of an e-car causes 58 grams CO₂ equivalent per km, more than double the emissions of diesel vehicle manufacture (27 CO₂ equivalent per km).
CO₂ emissions vary depending on the source of the electricity. If it is generated from renewable energy sources such as wind turbines, CO₂ emissions are near zero. However, with the typical grid mix in Germany, emissions are 85 grams CO₂ equivalent per km. By way of contrast, extraction and production of diesel generates just 11 grams CO₂ equivalent per km.
The major advantage of e-cars is that there are no CO₂ emissions at all during the vehicle’s operational life. With a diesel vehicle, however, this is the phase with the highest CO₂ emissions (100 grams CO₂ equivalent per km).
In conclusion, an e-car’s carbon footprint depends heavily on the electricity mix. To ensure truly climate-friendly mobility, take up our Volkswagen Naturstrom® contract, and get green electricity for your car and home.
