In line with our modular strategy, Volkswagen designed and implemented uniform, scalable platforms as the basis for our products.
"Modularer E-Antriebsbaukasten" (MEB)
Since 2020, the MEB forms the basis for all pure-battery vehicles within the Volkswagen brand and is featured in the award winning models such as the Volkswagen ID. family, Audi Q4 e-tron and CUPRA Born. It is the backbone of our electrification strategy. Click on the image for a short video.
As a purely electric platform, built around the battery, the MEB offers the following key advantages in comparison to ICE based or multi-powertrain platforms:
Premium Platform Electric (PPE)
The Premium Platform Electric (PPE) offers the latest high performance physical and electrical architecture to satisfy the demanding requirements of premium and luxury segment customers.
It is characterized by a high-tech and highly scalable architecture that enables both low- and high-floor vehicles and high-end features such as air-suspension, all wheel steering and electric charging power up to 270 kW. Click on the image for a short video.
MQB and MLB
With the two ICE platforms “Modulare Längsbaukasten” (MLB) and the “Modularer Querbaukasten” (MQB), Volkswagen has redefined industry benchmarks in terms of modularization and standardization. For almost ten years, the two platforms have underpinned the Volkswagen Group portfolio and reached millions of satisfied customers per year.
Through the resulting scale economies, Volkswagen is able to pass on the realized cost advantages to our platform customers.
For low-volume customers, VW Platform Business offers High-Voltage components for Historical and Light Commercial vehicles. Electrical conversions of these valuable assets can be achieved using the latest VW technology while benefiting from series production quality and price. This offer is aimed at companies already competent with modern high-voltage technology and years of experience in the automotive industry.
