Explore the next generation innovation we’ve packed into our electric cars, from smart connectivity to regenerative braking to the incredible ID. Pilot, which will enable your car to drive itself.
The new generation of Volkswagen electric cars features a groundbreaking battery system integrated into the car’s modular construction (MEB).
Battery safety FAQs
Can an electric vehicle burn? Is charging safe in the rain? And what has to be taken into account when towing? Many questions relating to safety come up when talking about electric mobility.
Modular construction (MEB)
Our ID. range of next generation electric cars has been redesigned from the ground up, around the most efficient mobility platform we’ve ever created. We call it the MEB.
Brake energy recuperation
Your electric Volkswagen can cleverly harness the energy released during braking and convert it to battery charge. This is called regenerative braking.
The perfect sound
Our electric cars are virtually silent, but they need to make some sound to protect other road users. Discover how Volkswagen acoustic engineers designed the sound of electric mobility.
Unlike conventional engines, electric motors do not produce enough heat to warm the interior of the car. Instead, we have developed a heat pump that delivers best-in-class heating.
Smart climate control
Our ID. range of next generation electric cars features smart climate control, including personalised air conditioning and ‘preconditioning’ - setting your climate before you even get in.
