Volkswagen is investing no less than €2 billion in setting up an entirely new factory in Wolfsburg. The new production facility is the birthplace for not just any car. Volkswagen is going to produce its planned electric flagship for 2026: Trinity.
Under the name Project Trinity, Volkswagen is working on a new electric top model that should be on the market in 2026. Now it is also known where Volkswagen will produce its ‘Trinity’. The brand is building a new factory in its home base Wolfsburg where it will produce its electric flagship. Setting up the factory and preparing it for the production of the new top EV involves an investment of no less than €2 billion.
The first piles will be driven into the ground in the spring of 2023, and the first copies of Volkswagen’s ‘Trinity’ should be off the production line in 2026. Whether the electric top model from Volkswagen will actually be called Trinity is not yet entirely certain. We do know that the car must have a range of more than 700 kilometers and that the battery pack of the car must also be able to be charged quickly thanks to 800v on-board voltage. The Volkswagen ‘Trinity’ will be placed on a completely new platform that listens to the name Scalable Systems Platform SSP. According to Volkswagen, a total of more than 40 million cars will be on SSP basis. Audi is working under the name Apollon on a top EV on the SSP platform. Porsche was also part of the Project Artemis under which these SSP models were developed, but bought out of the project not long ago. From around 2030, Volkswagen also wants to start producing cars on the new platform at its largest factory in Wolfsburg.
