Volkswagen Group achieves milestone of 1 Million production with MEB electric platform

Volkswagen Group has reached a significant milestone on a global scale, surpassing 1 million productions with its MEB electric platform. The Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) was introduced in 2018 and currently serves as the foundation for various electric vehicles, including the ID.3, ID.4 electric SUV, ID.5, and ID.6. It is reported that the upcoming ID.7 will also be based on this platform. This remarkable achievement is the result of collaborative efforts among Volkswagen Group’s five brands – Volkswagen, Audi, Cupra, Skoda, and Volkswagen commercials – and their eight factories located in the United States, Europe, and China.

In an exciting development, Volkswagen recently unveiled the long-wheelbase model of the ID Buzz EV for the global market. As the successor to the iconic Samba Microbus, the ID Buzz marks its entry into the international arena. This multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) offers three interior configurations: a 5-seater, a 6-seater, and a 7-seater with a 2+3+2 layout. It boasts a length of 4,962mm, which is 250mm longer than the base variant available in Europe, and a wheelbase of 3,239mm. The new Volkswagen ID Buzz MPV offers two powertrain options: a single-motor rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and a dual-motor all-wheel-drive (AWD) setup.
