Volkswagen Group has been converting its Zwickau factory in the Free State of Saxony to e-mobility since 2018. It will be completed in 2020. 1.2 billion euros is the investment in the state-of-the-art location. The three-year conversion is very challenging since it is taking place while production is continuing.

Here we go: These are the first all-electric ID.3 models. They will be rolling off the production line in the Zwickau factory from 4 November 2019.
