Volkswagen recently showed an electric motor, the first in a family, compact enough to fit in a sports bag, despite delivering more than 200 horsepower. That's the beauty of an electric drive.
It’s not only less complex than a conventional petrol or diesel engine, but also compact enough to fit in a sports bag. From 2023 on, Volkswagen intends to produce 1.4 million of similar electric drive units annually.
This particular drive unit, produced by Volkswagen Group Components, is called the APP 310 electric drive and will be used in the all-new Volkswagen ID.3 model.
Volkswagen Group Components produce these drive units in Kassel, Germany, but actually particular parts come from a few facilities.
