VW said in March that its Seat brand will lead development of the cars. The small EVs will use a shortened version of VW Group’s Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB) architecture. They will be subcompact-sized at about 4000mm (1575 inches) long.
The cars will be sold by the VW, Seat and Skoda brands and are expected to launch in 2022. VW is said to plan annual production of 200,000 units for the cars, which will replace the battery-powered variants of the VW Up, Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii.
