Over time, the next generation of Volkswagen Group’s Scalable Systems Platform SSP (Scalable Systems Platform) will help to significantly reduce product complexity. The successor to the MQB, MSB, MLB, MEB and PPE platforms, this high-tech solution will expand the consolidation from three engine technology platforms to a single architecture final solution for the entire product range via two BEV platforms.
In the period after 2026, Volkswagen Group plans to start production of fully electric vehicles on the SSP platform. These next-generation products will be fully electric as well as fully digital and broadly scalable. Volkswagen Group plans to produce more than 40 million vehicles over the life cycle of this platform. Like the current MEB platform, the SSP will be open to other automakers.
In order to raise the level of its knowledge and experience in the field of mechatronics and accelerate its development, the Volkswagen Group will invest approximately 800 million euros in a new research and development center in Wolfsburg, where the core and individual modules of the SSP platform will be designed. .
