Volkswagen announced plans to group more than 5000 digital experts in its new Car.Software unit with group responsibility for software in the vehicle by 2025. The company intends to develop significantly more software in the car and for vehicle-related services itself and to boost the in-house share of software development from the current figure of less than 10% to at least 60% by 2025. In the future, one uniform software platform, which will reportedly incorporate all the basic functions for all vehicles throughout the group, is planned. This will consist of the vehicle operating system, vw.os, and the Volkswagen Automotive Cloud. By 2025, all new group models are to run on this software platform.
The ID.3 will be the first vehicle based on this software platform, and it will make its debut at the IAA International Motor Show this year.
