The future of the automobile lies in e-mobility. Global sales of purely electric cars, so-called “BEVs” or “battery electric vehicles”, increased by more than 60% in 2017. In 2018, the threshold of one million newly licensed electric cars could even be achieved for the first time ever.
Volkswagen laid the foundations needed for electric drives to make the breakthrough long ago. The Group’s brands now offer a total of around a dozen models which use electric drive technology – either as BEVs with a purely electric drive or as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). The number of models available across the entire Group is expected to at least triple by 2025. The goal is to manufacture electric cars for a broad market at affordable prices.
The technological backbone is a newly developed vehicle platform: the modular electric drive matrix or MEB for short. With the MEB, which Volkswagen has created for its ID. family, the brand is set to solidify its reputation as one of the best platform developers in the automotive industry. Volkswagen’s modular transverse matrix (MQB) is arguably the most successful vehicle architecture in use today. The platform strategy is now being brought into the age of electric vehicles. The MEB will not only be the technical basis for all Volkswagen ID. family models but also for many electric cars of the Group’s brands, namely Audi, SEAT, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
