Educational program for the automotive future
The last Phaeton, which left the assembly line here in April 2015, stands in a corner. Today Dresden builds the future of mobility. To achieve that, Volkswagen invested €20 million in refitting the plant. As Kai Siedlatzek, CFO of Volkswagen Sachsen, puts it, the goal is to make the Transparent Manufactory "the trailblazer for the electro-mobile future".
The "e-Campus" educational program is part of this strategy. This program will soon be introducing school children to the fascination of e-mobility. Right at the heart of the factory, just a stone's throw away from the assembly lines, they will be able to find out more about the basics of e-technology. State-of-the-art virtual reality headsets are part of the program – after all, technology should be fun!
