As a completely newly developed generation of purely electric vehicles, the ID. family has complemented the Volkswagen product range since 2020. It is based on the new modular electric drive matrix (MEB), a vehicle architecture that was developed especially for electric drives. Among other things, this architecture permits space-saving installation of a flat high-voltage battery in the underbody. It offers generous interior space and battery capacity ranges suitable for everyday driving, as well as allowing software to be updated over-the-air. The MEB thus serves as the technical platform for the all-electric and fully connected vehicles of the ID. family and is used for models such as the compact ID.3, the electric SUV ID.4, the SUV coupé ID.5, the electric saloon ID.7 and the spacious ID. Buzz. The electric platform will be enhanced (MEB+) in the coming years and will then offer even greater performance benefits.
