FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) on Friday said it can build up to 15 million electric cars using its new MEB vehicle platform, revealing the extent of the carmaker’s push to mass produce zero-emission vehicles.

Volkswagen is investing more than 11 billion euros ($12.52 billion) into electric connected and autonomous vehicles by 2023, of which 9 billion euros will be allocated toward developing a family of electric cars, the carmaker said.
