“Please get in. Soon you’ll see Europe’s largest car factory,” says Rene Busch. The employee from the Guest Relations department makes an inviting gesture, takes a seat behind the wheel of the e-Golf* and starts the motor. Intrigued, guests from the Dortmund Motorsport Club hop in the vehicles behind the e-Golf. They woke up early that morning to take a more than three-hour drive to Wolfsburg. Members of the club spent the morning visiting the Autostadt – and now they are looking forward to visiting the main Volkswagen plant. “I have been here several times but I still haven’t seen everything. You could spend the entire week here,” says motorsport fan Uwe Bachmann.
That is certainly true, since just the factory’s hall space currently in use (1.6 square kilometers) is approximately as large as the Principality of Monaco. There is clearly always something new to discover here. In addition to four Volkswagen models, including the Golf, the Wolfsburg plant just recently started producing the SEAT Tarraco, which rounds out the SUV family for the Group's Spanish subsidiary. In Wolfsburg, the Tarraco is currently being produced together with the Tiguan and the Touran.
