SSP: The next generation of mechatronics platform
From 2026, the Volkswagen Group will bundle its future technologies on the Scalable Systems Platform (SSP). After the Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB) and the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), the SSP represents the next generation of all-electric, fully-digital and highly-scalable mechatronics platform. In the future, it will be possible to build models from all brands and segments on the SSP – more than 40 million Group cars throughout its life cycle.
With the SSP, the Volkswagen Group can rapidly and efficiently provide its customers with innovative functions in their cars, across all brands. This makes the SSP key to autonomous driving. At the same time, considerable economies of scale are achieved, whilst also reducing complexity and development costs.
By combining different modules with various sizes of platform, the Group’s brands also have a host of opportunities to differentiate themselves. From 2025, Audi’s Artemis project will use significant SSP modules for the first time. In 2026, Volkswagen will introduce this technology to the high-volume segment with its first model based on the SSP – the “Trinity” project.
