The showcase for e-mobility and digitalization: since March 2017, the e-Golf has been produced at the Transparent Factory in Dresden; current production is 72 vehicles per day. In a tour which is available in nine languages, visitors experience how the electric Golf is produced and what the future of mobility at Volkswagen will look like. The highlight of this tour for visitors is a free-of-charge test drive through Dresden with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Since January 2019, customers have even been able to come close to the e-Golf which they have ordered as it is being produced. They can accompany their vehicle on part of its journey along the production line and even lend a hand themselves.
The Transparent Factory, which opened in 2011, is unique – also with respect to its architecture and design. The generously glazed structure has been carefully integrated into the Dresden city landscape. Features include smart ideas such as the CarGo Tram which is used to deliver material and parts.
