Glimpse of Electric Car Concept Trinity
ELECTRIC CAR " TRINITY"
Volkswagen focuses its attention on electric cars targeting the mass market and focuses on a higher-end EV. Project Trinity is expected to deliver more advanced technologies than VW is currently introducing the ID family of affordable EVs, but other specifics are scarce.
The next VW EV Creation program is Trinity, and VW Group President Herbert Diess tweeted last week will be involved in a revamping of the home-owned automaker factory in Wolfsburg, Germany. Ralf Brandstattter, CEop of VW Passenger Cars, said Trinity, as the name implies, will be made up of three elements in a LinkedIn post (which seems to have been deleted).
Trinity comes after NEO (ID.-Project) and will revolutionize Volkswagen - and especially Wolfsburg even more! A huge challenge for our most traditional and historic site to compete against a greenfield in Grünheide. But we take on the challenge!— Herbert Diess (@Herbert_Diess) January 21, 2021
The new EV-platform, separated from the MQB platform for the ID electric cars, will be the first element. The second is an advanced technology for driver assistance, potentially similar to the General Motors’ Super Cruise or the Autopilot of Tesla. Brandstätter said that this would finally be elevated to level 4 in the Society of Auto Engineers (SAE).
However, with a production vehicle, no car manufacturer has achieved such an advanced stage, the technological level remains in a gray controlled field.
The CEO of VW Group suggested that the Wolfsburg plant would compete in the vicinity of Berlin with Tesla’s new Germany plant.
In addition, what Trinity Project will be is unknown. Roadshow has hypothesized the development of a high-endevice EV for Audi, Bentley, Porshe and Trinity as the previously mentioned Landjet version of VW. VW owns all three car manufacturers and it is normal to share them. For eg, the current Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Bentayga are all shared with the Porsche Taycan as significant component of the upcoming Audi E-Tron GT.
Starting with a hatchback ID.3 in Europe and the crossover ID.4 in the US, VW continues to expand its Mass Market ID models. Additional ID models include a new version of the classic VW Microbus are also expected, but they were delayed and are not scheduled to arrive in the US until 2023.
