Volkswagen builds plants using the most advanced technology and best production practices from our operations around the world. From the site planning to manufacturing and delivery, new facilities like the one in Chattanooga feature smart technology and environmental design to help reduce waste and emissions, and save energy. In addition to advanced welding, painting, ventilation and lighting systems, the layout of the body shop at the Chattanooga plant is more compact as a result of optimized processes simulated in virtual reality. Our employees benefit from ergonomically designed working spaces, a fitness center and healthy food choices in the dining area. And to save on transportation fuel, 85 percent of the vehicles produced will be transported by rail.
