The Modular Transverse Toolkit (MQB) is currently Volkswagen’s most widely used technology platform. It forms the basis of a variety of models ranging from the small Polo to the large US SUV – the Atlas. All MQB models are equipped with transverse engines installed at the front. The benefits of the MQB include extraordinarily efficient use of space. As one of very few automakers, Volkswagen is able, thanks to the MQB, to offer all its conventional models with an electric powertrain, too. The Golf is an example: to date, this is the world’s first and only car offering customers a choice between petrol, diesel, CNG, electric and plug-in hybrid powertrains.
