Volkswagen showed the initial design of his Trinity Project, an electric sedan to be manufactured in Wolsburg (Germany) as of 2026 and that will set new benchmarks in terms of autonomy, loading speed and digitization.
As the German brand has explained, the name of the Trinity project comes from Latin "Trinitas" y means triple unit. In this sense, Trinity is based on three pillars: a new electronic platform developed with state-of-the-art software, simplification of the supply structure and intelligent and fully interconnected production at its main plant in Wolfsburg.
"Trinity is, in a way, a point of crystallization of our Accelerate strategy, our lighthouse project, the software of our dream car", he highlighted Ralf Brandstätter, the CEO of the Volkswagen brand.
In this sense, the new vehicle architecture will set benchmarks in terms of autonomy, charging speed (as fast as refueling) and digitization. In addition, the model will reach the level 2+ autonomy when you start your production and you will be ready for level 4.
“We are using our economies of scale to make autonomous driving available to many people, as well as to build a neural learning network. In this way, we are creating the conditions for the continuous exchange of data in our fleet of vehicles ”, Brandstätter added.
With the production of the serial version, the Wolfsburg plant will become a showcase for state-of-the-art, intelligent and fully connected production processes. “We will completely rethink the way we build cars and introduce revolutionary approaches. Digitization, automation and lightweight construction play an important role here ”, affirmed the manager.
Future vehicle models like the Trinity project will be produced with far fewer variants and the hardware will be widely standardized. Therefore, the cars will have practically everything on board.
Also, by turning the car into a software-based product, the company will create the conditions for new data-driven business models.
