Point of interest: Vehicle tower

The place for 280 pieces of jewellery.

All vehicles produced in the Transparent Factory are stored in our 40-meter high vehicle tower after completion. There is room for 280 vehicles on 16 levels with up to 20 "compartments". The logistics in the tower are fully electronic, with two storage and two retrieval locks. This makes it possible to bring vehicles into and out of the tower in parallel.

Architecturally, the tower, like the rest of the manufactory, is completely covered with glass, thus offering unique perspectives on the final result of our work. The majority of the vehicles stored in the tower will also be handed over to their new owners in the Transparent Factory. The other e-Golf*, after the necessary transport protection measures have been taken, are sent via logistics routes to trading partners worldwide.

Since not only the e-Golf* can be picked up by customers in Dresden, the attentive observer will also be able to discover one or two Volkswagen models in the vehicle tower. After all, customers for other Volkswagen models can also pick up their new vehicle in Dresden in an emotional pickup. Of course, the vehicles are not produced here, but are delivered to Dresden specifically for this purpose.
