Volkswagen Converts 'Transparent Factory' Into Hybrid Vehicle Exhibit

Written By:

Volkswagen has converted its 'Transparent Factory' in Dresden, Germany into an exhibit for its plug-in hybrid technology and digitization.

VW's Transparent Factory in Dresden had shut down 10 days back when the German carmaker stopped production of its loss-making luxury sedan, the Phaeton, which was produced at the factory.

The reworked factory now boast of 50 interactive exhibits including cars such as the four door VW Sport Coupe Concept GTE Plug-in Hybrid which produces 375bhp while returning a mileage of 50.25km/l.

Also at the new exhibit is the GTE simulator which allows you to take a virtual drive around the city of Dresden. Users can also look at the e-Golf's battery electric drivetrain thanks to a 1:1 model made from glass.

Volkswagen currently makes 8 electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles and plans to up that number to 20 by the year 2020.
