Volkswagen is using major internal changes to create a more efficient production structure. A number of models will move to new locations.
Volkswagen perceives the transition to electromobility not only as an opportunity to develop new models, but also to restructure the production structure. On Monday, the meeting approved a plan extending to 2028. In terms of production, the goal is to increase capacity without new buildings and simplify the organizational network.
We have already informed you about the transfer of production of the ID.3 model from Dresden to Zwickau and Wolfsburg. The idea is to centralize cars built on the same foundation, in this case the MEB Evo. This platform will also serve as a building block for the new compact crossover of the A segment, due to arrive in 2026. Practically, it will be a higher alternative to the ID.3. Interestingly, there will be no construction of a new hall, but “only” adaptation of the existing production lines for the future SSP platform.
In Wolfsburg, the production of the Golf, which will undergo modernization next year, will continue, as well as the production of the new generation Tiguan. In 2025, the lineup will be completed by the seven-seat Volkswagen Tayron SUV, as the successor to the Tiguan Allpace.
Originally, a new hall was to be built in Wolfsburg for the highly autonomous Trinity flagship model. However, as part of optimization, its production will be moved to Cvikov, from where the new ID.3 and ID.5 electric cars depart.
