Volkswagen CEO Ralf Brandstätter described the Project Trinity as VW's “software dream car". VW boss also said that the Trinity would introduce an entirely new business model for the firm. There would be radically reduced variants on offer and customers will only have a choice of battery size, paint colour and wheel specification.

“We’re going to radically reduce the number of variants," said Brandstätter. “With Trinity, the hardware is largely unified: you select battery capacity, colour and wheels and then order it on smartphone. The functions can be set as you go along: you can add features through your digital system."

More details on VW's ambitious electric project will be revealed in the future.
