Volkswagen wastes no time and continues to advance with its electric range. In 2023 the first sedan of the family will arrive and in 2026 the brand will add its most revolutionary model of those planned for production. Swipe and read all about it.
The times stipulated by volkswagen indicate that its most futuristic and innovative model in electrical matters will arrive in 2026. Of the projects that the Group has in mind and that it has already confirmed to take it to the plant, this car represents the most advanced of the brand to date and is expected to be one of the cleanest in the world.
In this regard, one of the objectives that the German giant set with this model is to achieve a neutral carbon footprint, revolutionize automotive manufacturing by creating an emission-neutral vehicle throughout the production cycle. Technical details are still unknown. The bases, however, are already on the table.
In 2026, then, the Trinity Projecta one hundred percent electric sedan that Volkswagen confirmed in March 2021, when it unveiled the first teaser in which a stretched and long silhouette is discovered, a whole trend already revealed by the concept cars designed as a prelude to the next era of electrification.
The reduction of emissions to zero, the neutral carbon footprint, objectives that will be possible in part through an advanced level of digitalization that is expected to have its assembly process. For this, an adaptation will be carried out towards the conversion into an electrical manufacturer that includes the investment of 2,000 million euros in a new factory where Trinity will be conceived.
I said, there are aspects that are still unknown in detail, such as the capacity and charging power of its battery, although it is a fact that Volkswagen intends to achieve with its Trinity a autonomy of more than 700 kmsomething that is expected to happen with the launch of the Volkswagen ID.Aero in 2023, the brand’s first fully electric sedan, with a production name still undefined.
Optimizing times through unprecedented loading speeds would be one of the virtues of this Volkswagen sedan, as well as ensuring that it reaches level 4 of autonomous driving, something that Wolfsburg had advanced in 2018 with the presentation of the ID concept .Vizzion.
Trinity, a project with nods to the ID.Vizzion Concept
Another of the Trinity Project’s commitments is to provide the customer with post-purchase update software – renting or acquiring these extra packages – just as the Group has implemented it in Audi. Also, unlike the current ID line identified with the E-drive modular construction (MEB) the Trinity will be the first to be developed from the SSP (Scalable System Platform), a more versatile and efficient platform that includes a variety of bodies and that has already been used in other Group models such as the Porsche Taycan and the Audi eTron GT.
But to make the Trinity Project possible, Volkswagen had to set deadlines for an electric refoundation and, for this, the creation of its ID.Vizzion Concept 2018 it was essential. In addition to its similar design, with the Vizzion the German brand had set its level 4 or 5 autonomous driving goals for 2025, although the concept car represents the most futuristic by stripping the cockpit of a steering wheel, something that would be a reality not before 2030.
The electric age has arrived at Volkswagen. Although we still have to wait for Trinity, the family of the ID advance steadily. The new ID.Buzz It will begin to circulate during the European autumn of 2022 and for the following season it is expected -first in China, then in Europe- by the aforementioned ID.Aero, whose aesthetic also takes the form of the Vizzion and whose final name could be, according to reports, ID.7. The Volkswagen of the future is approaching. Tesla and Elon Musk are already taking note.
