Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH is comprised of three modern manufacturing sites where top Volkswagen models and innovative engines are produced: Fahrzeugwerk Zwickau, Motorenwerk Chemnitz and the Gläserne Manufaktur Dresden. Volkswagen Sachsen and its 10,000 employees make it one of the largest and most profitable employers in the German state of Saxony.
The first Volkswagen Polo rolled off the assembly line in Mosel (now Zwickau) on May 21, 1990. That event took place nearly 30 years ago and, as of 2018, more than 5.5 million Volkswagen vehicles have been produced on the Saxon assembly lines since then. More than 15.5 million engines have been produced in Chemnitz.
