New Volkswagen Centre of Competence for Safety

New Volkswagen Centre of Competence for Safety
  • New structure with 8,000 square metres on three floors
  • All safety activities brought under a single roof
  • New crash sled technology sets new standards in accident research
  • Realistic 'prebraking' accident scenarios

With its new safety centre, Volkswagen is bringing together its vehicle safety expertise at a single location. Blending into the existing architecture, a new three-story building with approximately 8,000 square metres of floor space was constructed at the headquarters in Wolfsburg. The centrepiece is a new state-of-the-art crash sled facility which for the first time can simulate lateral and rotational vehicle body movements both horizontally and vertically.
