That means that by 2030 the company plans to offer an electric or hybrid version of over 300 different vehicle models.
Mercedes-Benz followed Volvo, JLR and VW with a promise that it would offer electric versions of all its cars via an announcement at Frankfurt.
The group plans to bring a total of over 80 new electrified models to customers by 2025, including some 50 purely battery-powered vehicles and 30 plug-in hybrids as it doubles its investment in zero-emission vehicles to 20bn euros (£18bn) in a bid to put dieselgate behind it.
Matthias Müller, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen said: "We have got the message and we will deliver".
"Nothing can stop the transformation in our industry".

"We will become more electric after 2020 worldwide, but also in the U.S.", Diess said. An advanced air-purification system is part of the mix, as is a new operating system dubbed "vw.OS" allowing quick software updates at any time.
China, the world's largest auto market, announced this week that it intends to ban the production and sale of vehicles powered only by fossil fuels. In order to achieve this plan, the automaker will be investing more than $24 billion United States in developing new technology and two new platforms for their electric vehicles.
Volkswagen says the top speed is limited to 112 mph, and while it didn't cite a battery capacity, the range is expected to fall between 200 and 300 miles on an undefined test cycle.
Automakers will be eager to show off technologies that can help people get around without owning a auto.
The new metal on show this year includes the highly anticipated Renault Megane RS and its rival, the Hyundai i30 N, along with a host of concepts, including BMW's Tesla-rivalling i Vision Dynamics electric auto. And only then will electric cars come out of the niche - and achieve relevant market share in years to come.
Even Porsche, part of Volkswagen, didn't wait for the show but showed off its new Cayenne SUV on August 29 with an elaborate streamed event from its base in Stuttgart, Germany. "We are setting the scene for a final breakthrough in e-mobility".
