For Melanie Metzger’s department, the corona pandemic began at the worst possible moment: the model series manager and her team had been working for more than three years towards the launch of the all-electric ID.3. For Volkswagen, the first model of a new era. In the specially constructed project house, the team held the strings together to get the car on the road as planned. Every day, dozens of meetings with developers, purchasers or production planners. Shortly before the finish line, COVID-19 arrived – and consequently the home office. “From one day to the next, all communication had to take place online,” says Metzger.
