Let's redefine the way mobility is built

The challenge

vehicle of concept

Mobility is more than just cars – it’s a complete ecosystem, from highly automated or even autonomous driving to new interior concepts, faster car charging and groundbreaking digital services. The next generation of Volkswagen vehicles on the SSP (Scalable Systems Platform) offers huge potential when it comes to safety, convenience and revolutionary driving experiences, and is a benchmark for what we define as the future of mobility.

The approach

ID. Buzz

The electric age of mobility is based on a whole new foundation. A revolutionary way of thinking and producing. The Scalable Systems Platform (SSP) will have a systemic focus on software and will become the Volkswagen Group’s new platform for an all-electric, fully connected and digitally integrated approach.

“Following an architecture first approach will enable us to cut development times by 25 percent.”
Thomas Ulbrich Board Member New Mobility

System engineers – the pace-setters of the transformation

Volkswagen is turning the group’s largest engineering unit into one of the main drivers of the company’s transformation. The technical development division and related divisions are fundamentally redesigning their development process, making it interdisciplinary, systems-oriented, software-focused and function-driven.

The all-new Sandkamp Campus will be the ultra-modern new home for Volkswagen's systems engineers, architects, process specialists and out-of-the-box thinkers who collaborate to define the future of mobility. Having all these disciplines under one roof makes cross-divisional collaboration and decision-making quick and easy.

With an innovative testing and simulation infrastructure, agile development methods and a state-of- the-art working environment, the technical development centre will play a pioneering role in Volkswagen’s overall transformation.

The impact

ID. VIZZION - The vehicle is a concept car

Shape what’s coming and be part of the next big thing. A carbon-neutral, digital-first approach has the power to change mobility for the better. That's what we believe in. That's what we're working on.

Fundamental change is a process. It requires a clear vision, courage, commitment and endurance to stay on track. Who could be better suited for that journey than Europe's biggest car manufacturer and the smartest systems engineers out there? Let's get going.

The specified fuel consumption and emission data are determined in accordance with the measurement procedures prescribed by law. 1 January 2022, the WLTP test cycle completely replaced the NEDC test cycle and therefore no NEDC values are available for new type approved vehicles after that date. This information does not refer to a single vehicle and is not part of the offer but is only intended for comparison between different types of vehicles. Additional equipment and accessories (additional components, tyre formats, etc.) can alter relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, affecting the vehicle's fuel consumption, power consumption, CO2 emissions and driving performance values in addition to weather and traffic conditions and individual driving behavior. Due to more realistic testing conditions, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured according to WLTP will in many cases be higher than the values measured according to NEDC. As a result, the taxation of vehicles may change accordingly as of 1 September 2018. For further information on the differences between WLTP and NEDC, please visit Further information on official fuel consumption data and official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger cars can be found in the "Guide to fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption for new passenger car models", which is available free of charge from all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany and at
