Audi, Porsche, Bentley to Start Sharing Electric Platform in 2022


By: Sebastien Bell
The platform underpinning the Porsche Mission E and the E-tron will both be thrown out in 2022 to welcome the new Premium Platform Electric.
Codenamed PPE, the platform has been promised before but for the first time, we’re getting a firm hold on the timeline thanks to a report from Motor Trend.
The publication spoke to Peter Mertens, Audi’s head of technical development, and reports that Audi will three variants will be based on PPE, with Audi taking the lead on two, and Porschetaking the lead on the third.
None of the variants will be built entirely by either one of the companies, though, said Mertens.
“These are joint, co-located teams, bringing the best engineering knowhow of the two companies together to make it happen,” Mertens told Motor Trend.
PPE will also use VW expertise, as valuable lessons were learned through the development of its all-electric MEB platform.
Eventually, the platform will come to underpin not just Audis and Porsches, but Bentleys as well. Unfortunately, we don’t yet know what the three variants will be, but given the nature of the brands, we can a take a wild stab in the dark.
With Audi working on two of the variants, and Bentley doubtless interested in these, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be another electric SUV in the works. And since Porsche is working on the third variant, a sports car is also likely to be in the mix.
The middle variant is a little more mysterious. Given the direction the automotive industry has taken, it could easily be a “performance” crossover, though a Grand Tourer would also make sense, taking over where Panamera-Continental-A7 trifecta left off.
What would you like to see as a trio of premium electric variants?
