Volkswagen opens electric platform to third-parties

Prof. Dr. Günther Schuh, CEO of e.GO Mobile AG and Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG in the Volkswagen ID. BUGGY
  • e.GO to become first partner for e-mobility platform (MEB)
  • MEB enables efficient production of smaller series – significant cost benefits from scaling
  • Diess: “Volkswagen wants to establish its platform as a standard for e-mobility”
  • ID. BUGGY on show at Geneva Motor Show highlights MEB’s variability even for small series

The Volkswagen Group is opening its Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) developed in recent years to other manufacturers. The purpose is to achieve a significant reduction in the cost of e-mobility through the widest possible deployment of the MEB and the associated economies of scale, thus enabling broad access to individual mobility to continue in future. The Volkswagen Group is currently projecting a first wave of some 15 million pure electric vehicles based on the MEB. e.GO Mobile AG based in Aachen, Germany, is to be the world’s first external partner to use the electric platform to launch further electric vehicles in addition to Volkswagen’s model range. A dedicated vehicle project is already being planned. Volkswagen is highlighting the MEB’s variability even for small series with the ID. BUGGY on show at the Geneva International Motor Show.
