Here is the thing.Didnt T_690 mention that platform isn't all that great?
FWD platforms with transverse engines are here because of 2 reasons in comparison to RWD.
One reason is build price. EMP2 may deliver on this front. Or upcoming eVMP previously known as EMP2 v4.
The other reason is space efficiency. A lot of interior space for car's length. And this is the major obstacle for EMP2 based cars. Compare Giulia which has 2.82 meters wheelbase with 4.64 meters of total length and European Pug 508 II which is EMP2 with rear multilink suspension and has 2.8 meter wheelbase and 4.75 meters in length. Giulia offers more interior space. Interior space like combined passenger leg room and rear passenger head room, even cargo room is similar by VDA standards. How is that possible?.IMO something is wrong with EMP2, something on enginnering level.
Things got even worse for EMP2 when someone compares it to Small Wide. Rear twisted beam vs rear twisted beam versions. Pug 308 II vs Fiat Tipo, both 5 door hatchback versions. Tipo has around 11 cm longer combined leg room although it has just 2 cm longer wheelbase.
I would like to hear @valiant67 thoughts.
