Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH, Vehicle Plant Zwickau
With the Golf, Golf Variant, and Passat Variant, the essential volume models of the Volkswagen brand are produced in Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH’s Vehicle Plant Zwickau. Every day, up to 1,350 vehicles of these models leave the plant in a flexible mix. The Golf Variant, which is exclusively produced in Zwickau, is the first model ever for which the corporate site assumed responsibility as a lead plant in 2013. A high-performance pilot center specializes in preparing and monitoring mass production.
In addition to vehicle assembly, Zwickau also possesses core competences in the production of high-quality car bodies. Currently, painted car bodies are manufactured in Saxony on behalf of Bentley and then delivered to the British city of Crewe for final assembly. The pressing plant also produces sheet metal parts for the entire Volkswagen Group.
With a service spectrum that has seen considerable expansion, the special-purpose vehicle construction team has been working at its new location in St. Egidien near the Zwickau plant since 2014. The portfolio of this competence service center encompasses small batches and unique items of all corporate brands as well as sample vehicle construction and special conversions in the e mobility sector. Its major clients include the police and emergency medical services. And with the production of gas racks for corporate vehicles, a new business segment is emerging at this venue.
