    Let the sunshine in! The panoramic sunroof is a re-interpretation of the legendary folding soft top

    The days are growing shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and fall is making its appearance. Despite the season, a lot of Volkswagens are still bright as in summer. There is a tradition here. Ever since the company's early years, intelligent roof systems have been capturing the light of the sun even in wintertime. As early as in 1950, Volkswagen began to offer the Beetle with a folding sunroof. In the mid-1990s, this roof concept was refined in the Lupo and Polo with electrically actuated versions. Today, transparent panoramic sunroofs are experiencing a boom. They are available for all Volkswagen models – from the small up! and new Polo to the large Touareg and new Arteon.

    Intelligent integration – Electric vehicles reduce power fluctuations

The partners – Volkswagen AG, Lichtblick SE, SMA Solar Technology AG and the Fraunhofer Institute Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES) – point to the fact that it is technically possible to absorb power fluctuations by connecting electric vehicles to the power supply. The research results will in future help to link electric mobility with the energy industry.
