Opportunities arising from the Modular Transverse Toolkit
In addition to conventional petrol and diesel engines, the MQB also affords us the opportunity to integrate alternative drivetrains, such as gas, hybrid, or electric drives. Previously, individual, vehicle-specific adaptations were necessary. The MQB has created an extremely flexible vehicle architecture that permits dimensions determined by the concept such as the wheelbase, track width, wheel size and seat position to be harmonized throughout the Group and deployed flexibly. Other dimensions, for example the distance between the pedals and the middle of the front wheels, are always the same and guarantee a uniform system in the front of the car, enabling synergies to be achieved.
