Volkswagen Group has outlined a strategy and a unified platform – DRIVE

The contract of 62-year-old Herbert Diss, acting 2018–2023, recently extended until 2025. The boss said the VW Group is “well on its way” to become a global leader in the electric car market. Ahead is the transition to drones, which means that “technology, speed and scale will be even more important than today.”

The name New Auto for the new “2030 strategy” (video for an hour and a half) resembles a scandalous slogan The car and “Dieselgate”… In its first lines, an increase in the margin from 7-8% to 8-9% by 2025 is spelled out. The share of electric vehicles in the total volume will grow gradually, so in 2040 it will be “almost 100%”. But the profit from the sale of the internal combustion engine will go to accelerate electrification, together with investments of 73 billion euros (6.38 trillion rubles) and a reduction in costs by another 7%. The “unprecedented synergy” of passenger cars and commuter vehicles is like unification for the sake of economy. So, from 2026 the VW Group will move to the “single universal architecture” SSP (Scalable Systems Platform).

United SSP named the successor to the three ICE-“carts” (MQB, MSB, MLB) and two EV platforms (MEB, PPE). It will form the basis of “more than 40 million cars” and will open for other car manufacturers. The picture shows PPE (foreground), MLB (Audi e-tron), J1 (e-tron GT), MEB (Q4 e-tron).

The idea with a universal architecture is more complicated than it seems, because there are four types of it: SSP n, SSP 1, SSP 2, SSP 3. Rather, it is a common denominator, like STLA in Stellantis… However, neither the core of the platform, nor its modules have yet been designed: this is being done by the technical center in Wolfsburg, which received 800 million euros (70 billion rubles) of investment. The unified software architecture E³ 2.0 will be ready by 2025 (it is being developed by the “daughter” Love). Then the streets will roll out drones Argo AI… Battery plan famous since March. Europe remains the main markets, China and the USA.
