VWG opens MEB to third parties

The Volkswagen Group is opening its Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) 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.

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.

Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, said, 'Over 100 million of our vehicles are based on that particular platform. With the MEB platform, we are now transferring this successful concept to the electric era and opening it to other carmakers.

'The MEB is to establish itself as the standard for e-mobility. Based on the MEB, we will make individual mobility CO2-neutral, safe, comfortable and accessible to as many people as possible.'
