Volkswagen will share electric auto platform with Ford, says Reuters

Volkswagen will share electric auto platform with Ford, says Reuters

Volkswagen split from Amazon-backed Aurora last month to align itself with Argo, whose biggest ally thus far has been Ford.

The Dearborn, Michigan-based USA automaker Ford Motor Co., and the Frankfurt-based German automaker Volkswagen AG had reached an agreement to share self-driving and electric auto technologies, remarking a landmark alliance between the No.

Ever since Volkswagen and Ford announced that they will be working together on commercial vehicles, there were already rumors about them possible working on more projects together and we can finally learn what is next. While VW had previously talked about opening MEB to competitors, it hadn't mentioned Ford by name - this suggests that your future Ford could share the same basic underpinnings as something like the ID Crozz. Under terms of the new deal, Volkswagen will share its MEB electric vehicle platform with Ford in exchange for access to some proprietary autonomous vehicle technology from Ford.

"Our talks with Volkswagen continue", a Ford official told the publication. While they declined to confirm the reported agreement on autonomous and electric vehicles, the spokesperson said "We'll share updates as details become more firm".
