To prepare for production of the newly launched Modular Transverse Toolkit (MQB).

Commissioning the new Golf, i.e. installing all data, is also now fully automated and carried out via a fast Wireless Local Area Network while the vehicle is still on the production line. As a result, manufacturing time for this process step remains unchanged even though the volume of data is higher. From next year, a new fully-automated generation of driverless transport systems will ensure the faster supply of material, a key factor in efficient factory processes. Body shop logistics will see a 7% improvement in productivity through the use of 23 transport robots.
