The German auto giant shared information about the plans for its plant in Edman, Germany. Today it produces Passat and Arteon models.

Volkswagen shared production plans for its new ID.4 electric crossover. Cars will be assembled at a factory in Edmen, Germany, where today the production of Passsat and Arteon models has been adjusted. Re-equipment of production has already begun – it is expected that the first ID.4 will go off the assembly line in early 2022. As for the Arteon and Passat models, for the first time they will continue to be assembled at this plant, and after the change of generations, their production will be transferred to the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava.

After a full launch, the enterprise will be able to produce about 300 thousand electric cars per year. For this, an additional assembly site will be built exclusively for electric vehicles with an area of ​​50 thousand square meters, and the body shop will be expanded by 23 thousand square meters. To optimize production, the company decided to make a separate workshop for two-tone body painting, which will be available for Volkswagen ID.4. In total, investments in the modernization of the plant will amount to about 1 billion euros.

However, company executives are confident that the ID.4 model will immediately gain popularity and all investments will quickly pay off.

Meanwhile, in Europe there was an opportunity to pre-order the new Volkswagen Tiguan. At the first stage, three modifications will be available, after which their number will be expanded.
