Volkswagen (OTC:VLKAF) (ETR:VOWG_p) of America announced on Thursday that the company will be collaborating with the Tennessee Valley Authority to help the utility corporation to reach its goal of operating a 100% electric sedan and SUV fleet by the year 2030.

“Electricity is the clean, low-cost, reliable fuel that will decarbonize our nation’s transportation network,” said Don Moul, TVA Executive Vice President and COO. “TVA is on the leading edge of electric vehicle adoption, and with partners like Volkswagen we are moving farther and faster together to accelerate the use of electricity in all sectors of the economy to make our carbon-free vision a reality.”

To celebrate the partnership, Volkswagen revealed a second ID.4 vehicle that features an exterior graphics package designed to boost visibility of the test fleet program. The new ID.4s are equipped with 18-inch wheels that are wrapped in rugged treaded tires, the all-electric SUV is also outfitted with Volkswagen roof carrier bars and a Thule brand Canyon Roof Basket.

“TVA has a long history of innovation, and we’re thrilled to collaborate with them in their transition to a fully-electrified fleet,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President Product Marketing & Strategy, Volkswagen of America. “This effort is leading by example, and with the aid of our ID.4 vehicles, stands to show industry how viable EVs are in fleet applications.”

The ID.4 is Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV and the brand’s first global EV. The ID.4 competes in the world’s largest market segment—compact SUVs—and is currently produced in Germany, China, and at VW’s Chattanooga, Tenn. assembly facility with deliveries due to start later this year.
