Volkswagen engineers simulate the ageing process of a car in just six months to reproduce 12 years of car ownership by a customer. We explain the corrosion protection measures that apply for all Volkswagen models – classic combustion engine models as well as the new electric models from the ID. range.

Corrosion protection at Volkswagen: Twelve years in “fast forward” mode
Salty water
Gravel of varying granulations
Simulation: parking at the hillside with heavy rain

The demands placed on rust prevention are increasing all the time – for the electric ID. models, developers are implementing completely new concepts.

Perfect protection: the encapsulated underbody of the ID.3 and the hybrid side members.
