AfD criticism of conversion to electric cars in Zwickau meets with criticism in Saxony's state parliament

The AfD's criticism of the conversion to electric cars at Volkswagen's Zwickau site almost three years ago has drawn widespread criticism in the Saxon state parliament. According to CDU member of parliament Jan Hippold, the transformation of the automotive industry offers both challenges and opportunities for new jobs. AfD parliamentary group leader Jörg Urban blames the political hype surrounding e-mobility for weakening demand at VW. SPD state chairman Henning Homann warns against a swan song for the e-car, saying this would harm employees and Saxony's industry.
