develops
e-car platform

The next generation of the Volkswagen MEB is coming - Successful MEB model: VW continues to develop e-car platform

With the development of the Modular Electric Drive System (MEB), the Volkswagen brand has undertaken pioneering work for e-mobility – and brought a real game-changer to the road. Thanks to its great flexibility, the platform designed exclusively for electric cars can be used to build a wide variety of models, from compact cars to vans. At the end of 2019, the first MEB model celebrated its world premiere with the ID.3, and in the meantime more than half a million models of the ID. family alone have been delivered on this platform. So the MEB has already proven itself – and is now being taken to the next level, the MEB+. Volkswagen is investing substantially in its further development in order to leverage the full potential of this successful platform and ensure that it remains competitive. The basic ideas behind the successful MEB concept, the advantages for customers and the improvements that will be made with the MEB+ will be explained here.
