Volkswagen Developing New Architecture for Automated EVs in China

The Volkswagen Group has entered into an agreement with Guangzhou automaker XPeng to jointly develop a new digital architecture for electric vehicles on sale in China.

The hope is that the China Electrical Architecture (CEA), which will be available on VW vehicles in the country starting in 2026, will make the German company more competitive there…

The development of CEA will see XPeng’s Electrical/Electronic (E/E) architecture integrated into Volkswagen’s China Main Platform (CMP), bringing a number of benefits, and is being hailed by VW as a “decisive step towards intelligent connected vehicles”.
