VW plans to overturn electric car strategy (MEB)


Volkswagen plans to realign its product strategy for electric cars and modernize the MEB platform to bring more car models to market.
According to a report in the FAZ (paywall), Volkswagen intends to revise its product strategy for electric models and launch more vehicles on the market via the MEB platform. To this end, the platform is to be modernized at a cost of several billion euros.

The FAZ refers to confidential documents according to which the MEB platform will not be replaced by the SSP standard platform in 2025. Former Group CEO Herbert Diess and his brand boss Ralf Brandstätter did not want to develop the MEB platform further, but to replace it with SSP from 2025/2026.

That is said to be wastepaper. The new Group CEO Oliver Blume and Brand CEO Thomas Schäfer want to renew the MEB platform. The reason is presumably delays in SSP, which could take several years.

According to the report, the VW unit cell will be integrated into the MEB platform. It was actually intended for SSP.
