This approach allows variance in vehicle width, length, wheelbase and height.
The e-TNGA platform can also accommodate front, rear or all-wheel drive, with a range of battery and electric motor capacities to suit various vehicle types and usage profiles.
The first e-TNGA-based model has already been developed and is being readied for production.
