The Volkswagen Group is aiming to build all the MEB Entry models (The Volkswagen ID.2 is built on the MEB platform.) in Spain and has earmarked the Seat-Cupra factory in Martorell, near Barcelona.
That decision is contingent on securing support from the Spanish government to build a 40GWh battery plant close to the facility and develop the infrastructure to provide the required components.
The Volkswagen Group is aiming to secure funding from Spain’s Strategic Project for Economic Recovery and Transformation.
The push to build the MEB Entry models in Spain means the first Seat model on the platform – which brand boss Wayne Griffiths has already confirmed will be a compact SUV – will be a priority, and it’s likely to appear at the same time as, or shortly after, the ID 2.
