The Ford-Volkswagen EV riddle continues to be unsolved.
The rumors concerning the Volkswagen and Ford EV partnership are nonetheless alive as Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess stated that each producers “recognized different potential cooperation” (in addition to business car partnership).
“Rumours of a VW and Ford tie-in have been circulating for the reason that begin of the month, with hypothesis that the manufacturers may even develop electrical automobiles collectively.”
Speculations concern the brand new MEB platform that may very well be utilized in Ford electrical automobiles, however it could be unusual if Ford would resolve on that choice, as a result of to make use of the borrowed MEB platform would appear to point that Ford doesn’t totally assist electrical automobiles.
We consider partnership like this is dependent upon the Ford coverage and forecast concerning the electrical automobile future. If Ford doesn’t anticipate EVs to play a main function, then the corporate may use VW’s tech and do just a few low-volume fashions to save lots of prices, but when Ford believes in EVs, it most likely can be keen to develop its personal tech.
Guess time will inform.
