    Volkswagen's MQB Platform Will Be Around For Two More Generations


    • MQB is sticking around for awhile

    Volkswagen's brand chief Herbert Diess revealed in an interview this past weekend that the modular MQB platform with some minor tweaks will underpin the next two generations of their vehicles.

    "The MQB has high technical substance, so we can use it for the next two vehicle generations without further major investments," Diess told German newspaper Boersen-Zeitung. 

    This move is in an effort to save a bit of cash due to the fallout of the diesel emission scandal. Diess didn't say what kind of tweaks would be done.

    MQB currently underpins a number of Volkswagen vehicles in the world. In the U.S., the entire Volkswagen Golf lineup and upcoming Atlas crossover.

    Totally understand this move as with the Gas cheat issues now, they are going ot be hurting for cash big time over the next 10-20 years and people are going to be reluctant to buy their cars so cash is going to be very tight. Executives who can rebuild their cash pile will be the winner at VW corp HQ.
