Volkswagen has adopted NXP’s battery management system (BMS) into its innovative MEB platform to help increase vehicle range, extend battery longevity, and enhance safety. NXP’s BMS provides the flexibility and scalability needed to meet the diverse range needs of today’s electromobility customers.

With the release of Volkswagen’s ID series, Volkswagen is pressing the boundaries of EV travel with a flexible offering that enables 45 kWh, 58 kWh or 77 kWh powered models. The medium battery can recharge to enable a range of up to 260 miles in 30 mins, in quick charge mode with DC with 100 kW performance. The larger battery can enable a vehicle to travel up to 340 miles on a full charge.
