WOLFSBURG – It’s no secret that Volkswagen wants to make it big with electric cars, but with its current ID3 and ID4 models are targeting the cheaper end of the market, the German carmaker is now promising a premium sedan produce that “sets new standards” ???? When it comes to range, charging speed and digitization

Volkswagen calls its upcoming creation “Project Trinity” and it’s only seen because of the daylight in 2026

The vehicle will also be highly automated.Although it will start with level 2 capability, it will be ready for level 4, says Volkswagen

â ???? We use our economies of scale to make autonomous driving available to many people and to build a learning neural network. In this way, we create the conditions for the continuous exchange of data from our vehicle fleet â ???? For example, the traffic situation, obstacles or accidents said Volkswagen brand boss Ralf Brandstetter

According to the company, future models from VW, such as the Trinity, will be manufactured with considerably fewer variants and the hardware will be largely standardized. The cars will then have practically everything on board and customers can activate the desired functions “on request” at any time via the digital ecosystem in the car This will significantly reduce the complexity in production

In addition, by developing the car into a software-based product, VW is creating the prerequisites for new, data-based business models. Entry barriers for individual mobility are to be dismantled and at the same time even more attractive usage packages are to be offered. Volkswagen intends to generate additional income in the usage phase for charging and energy services, for software-based functions that customers can book as required, or for automated driving

“In the future, the individual configuration of the vehicle at the time of purchase will no longer be determined by the hardware,” Brandstätter said

“Instead, customers can always add features as needed via the digital ecosystem in the car”

Brandstetter hoped that electric vehicles would account for 70 percent of European sales by 2030, doubling its previous goal in the face of increasingly stringent laws

These efforts are part of a strategy with which the VW Group has invested more than 30 billion euros in electromobility in order to comply with the stricter environmental regulations in the EU

To meet the new goals, VW announced that it would be releasing at least one new battery-powered model every year through 2030

VW’s fully electric ID card3 became the second best car in Europe last December, and the brand has Tesla in its sights with the ID 20214 SUV model that will also reach South African coasts
