Volkswagen has teased a silhouetted glimpse at its upcoming electric sedan Project Trinity.

The silhouette of the car confirms a coupe-like shape with a stooping roofline that gives it an appearance similar to a crossover.

Project Trinity is a key pillar of Accelerate's long-term strategy that Volkswagen has created to operate in a changing market - and to compete with Tesla, which is building its gigafactory in Germany. This project envisages not only the development of electromobility technologie, but also a transition to new electronics and manufacturing processes.

Volkswagen Project Trinity is the electric sedan that promises to revolutionise the industrywith high range, "extremely short" charging times, a revolutionary production system and extremely advanced, level 4 automated driving technologies (ADAS). Volkswagen saysproduction of the car will start in 2026at the Wolfsburg plant.

A press release issued by the carmaker says, “Trinity represents three crucial themes: a newly developed electronic platform with state-of-the-art software, simplification of the supply structure and fully connected and intelligent production at the main plant in Wolfsburg."

As far as recharging is concerned, Volkswagen promisestimes comparable to those of refuelling cars with petrol or diesel;if true, one of the most uncomfortable negative aspects of electric driving would finally be eradicated.

Another interesting aspect is that Volkswagen,whose electrical division is starting to gain momentum, appears to be interested inchanging the business and production model as well.The company says it will produce considerably fewer variants, reducing consumer choice but saving production costs.Future car models will already have everything on board, and the user will be able to pay to choose what to activate.In short, the options almost become the DLC of a video game: it is a business system that we have already seen with Tesla (for example the Autopilot), and which obviously has potential.

“Future vehicle models such as Trinity will be produced with significantly fewer variants and the hardware will be largely standardised.The cars will therefore have virtually everything on board and customers will be able to activate the desired functions "on demand" at any time via the car's digital ecosystem.This will greatly reduce the complexity in manufacturing," said Volkswagen’s press release.
