Volkswagen has released an image showing the silhouette of the electric vehicle now known as the VW Project Trinity. CEO Ralf Brandstätter called the development “our dream software machine.”

The functions of the electric vehicle, now known as the VW Project Trinity, will be available on a time or mileage basis.

Like any concept, the VW Project Trinity is designed with advanced self-driving capabilities, long-range electric powertrains and fast battery charging technology in mind. However, an indication of the software component makes it clear what the manufacturer is highlighting in its plans.

Rather than building multiple versions of the same car with different capabilities, the company will release one, but the features will only be unlocked “on demand” – probably for a fee. Tesla has taken a similar approach, making it possible to turn on the autopilot for an additional fee after buying the car. BMW has gone further and tried selling features using a subscription model and is considering expanding this practice. According to Autoblog, VW will have an on-demand unlock model extending to features such as all-wheel drive or GTI-level aerodynamics and handling packages with pay per minute or pay per mileage.

According to the director, VW “in the future, the individual configuration of the vehicle will no longer be determined at the time of purchase.” Instead, users “will be able to add features on demand at any time through the digital ecosystem in the car.”

According to VW’s plans, production of this electric vehicle is slated to begin in 2026.
