Volkswagen is sticking to assembling cars at the Transparent Factory for the time being. "Vehicle production of the ID.3 in Dresden is still continuing, and no short-term adjustments are planned," a spokesman said after a regular works meeting on Thursday. He added that the company was currently examining, with an open mind, how the site could be aligned to secure its future. To this end, there are talks with the employee representatives, he said. "The job security until 2029 remains unchanged for all around 300 employees, regardless of these talks," it said. In Dresden, only a few dozen cars are manufactured daily.
The business magazine "Automobilwoche" had reported with reference to company sources a few days ago that VW was planning to discontinue vehicle production in Dresden. The location is to remain, the approximately 300 employees other tasks. At the Zwickau site, Volkswagen plans to cut jobs due to weakening demand for its e-cars and not renew nearly 270 employees' contracts that will soon expire.
