Ford could tap into VW’s EV technology
4 months after signing a memorandum of understanding to jointly develop a range of commercial vehicles, Ford and Volkswagen seem willing to expand their industrial cooperation to electric vehicles.
On Tuesday, Volkswagen CFO Frank Witter said the automaker's strategy is to open up the company much more to partnerships. Asked whether this would include allowing Ford to build cars on the group’s flexible MEB electric vehicle architecture, Witter did not rule out such an idea, reports Automotive News.
"Whether we might provide access to other brands outside of the VW Group is theoretically possible, but there is no decision," Witter told journalists on a conference call for the company's third-quarter results.
