Transformation at the Emden plant - 60,000 days of electromobility training

The Volkswagen plant in Emden is currently undergoing the biggest transformation in its history. One billion euros are being invested in the location to prepare it for the production of electric cars. The series production of the all-electric ID.4, which gets started on 20 May, is a milestone. And Volkswagen is employing unconventional methods, such as escape rooms, to train their employees. We take a look behind the scenes.
