Volkswagen AG Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess warned that the shift away from Russian energy isn’t happening fast enough to shield the German carmaker from a sudden stop in natural-gas deliveries.

VW will keep the ability to run its power plants with coal instead of gas because of Germany’s reliance on Russian imports, Diess said in an interview for the Qatar Economic Forum in Doha. While progress has been made sourcing liquefied natural gas from the US and other nations, building up the necessary infrastructure will take time.
