Volkswagen plans to produce a faster charging, longer range, and more powerful EV for its MEB Platform.
During the recent UBS Paris Electric Car Day Conference, Dr. Silke Bagschik, Head of Sales and Marketing, said that Volkswagen is planning to provide a more poweful EV that will provide faster charging and longer range.
Dr. Bagschik presented different ID vehicles and that Volkswagen is aiming to produce an EV that go up to 700 km with a charging power of 200kW and an acceleration of 5.5 seconds.
The models of EVs that Volkswagen creates uses the MEB (Modular electric drive matrix) platform. According to Volkswagen, The Modular Electric Toolkit jettisons all the ballast of the fossil age as it has been designed consistently for electric cars. This leads to fundamental changes in body design, interior design, the package, and the powertrain characteristics of electric Volkswagens. Ford is also planning to build an EV that is based on the said platform.
Included in the presentation is Project Trinity, which will be net carbon-neutral and will set new standards in autonomous driving, electrification, and the digitalization of mobility. Dr. Bagschik also gave a preview of their ID series, including the ones already on the market.
