All VW Group EVs To Share One Platform By Around 2025


The Scalable Systems Platform is expected to be ready by around 2025

  • VW Group comprises Audi, Porsche, Bentley, Skoda, Seat, and Volkswagen.

  • It plans on using a single, highly scalable platform (SSP) for EVs across the group.

  • There are also plans on software and mobility upgrades within the next 10 years.

Volkswagen Group has announced its new roadmap for the future. The strategy, which focuses on sustainability, mobility advancements, and new technologies, broadly consists of four key elements: hardware, software, batteries and charging, and mobility services. The German group owns the likes of Audi, Bentley, Porsche, Seat, Skoda, and Volkswagen.

The VW Group already has a prominent electric platform known as Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB). It plans to expand this platform across the world with around 27 MEB-based models expected to be offered across the Group by 2022. Another platform, built for high-performance and faster charging, will be used for premium electric models from next year onwards. It’s known as the Premium Platform Electric (PPE). 

While these are all past plans coming into effect now, VW Group is working on a new Scalable Systems Platform (SSP). It is a single, highly scalable platform that will be used for electric vehicles across the VW Group. It’s expected to be ready by the middle of this decade.

With the PPE, VW Group is aiming to introduce Version 1.2 of the VW.OS, followed by Version 2.0 with the SSP. Car.Software-Org., the company responsible for the development of VW.OS, will also be working on developing autonomous driving and mobility services. VW Group is also working on a unified cell, set to be introduced by 2023. The cell’s design will allow for alteration of its chemistry according to the performance and range requirements of the EV it is used in. This unified cell is expected to be incorporated into at least 80 percent of the Group’s EVs by 2030.

The world is showing signs of damage, caused by pollution and global warming. The recent pandemic has also given us some perspective. Carmakers are now planning ahead towards sustainability and greener cars. Keeping that in mind, VW Group has now fast tracked its plans and is preparing to invest 46 billion Euro in the electric mobility and hybridisation of its fleet within the next five years.
