The Volkswagen brand expects to be building up to one and a half million
electric cars a year by 2025. In order to enable this level of mass production,
its Zwickau factory will be completely converted to e-mobility and extensively
digitized by the end of 2020. The electric car is based on the MEB platform (Modular
Electric-Drive Matrix), comprising a battery and two axles, one or both of
which are electrically driven, depending on the design. The production plants
for the MEB-platform models are based on the 6th generation of the VASS
(Volkswagen Audi Seat Skoda) standard. The VASS standard includes automation
solutions for hardware, software and visualization, as well as material for
application training and upskilling.
VASS standard we offer a building block system for stable production and
facilitate mass production of different models on the same line. At the same
time, we are creating a consistent basis for further digitalization of the
production processes,” explained Thomas Zembok, Volkswagen AG.
