Technical Visit 2: Volkswagen Battery System Factory - Braunschweig

Technology Focus Topic: BATTERIES IN POWER ELECTRONICS

The Volkswagen plant in Braunschweig is a member of Volkswagen Group Components, an independent business unit in the Group Technology division under the umbrella of Volkswagen AG that is responsible for developing and manufacturing strategic components for the Group’s vehicle-producing brands.

The Braunschweig plant produces the battery systems for a wide range of battery-driven electric and hybrid vehicles. Braunschweig has also been producing the batteries for the new MEB vehicles of the Group since 2019. As a result of its work, the location plays a key role in electric mobility for the Volkswagen brand.

During a technical visit, you will have an opportunity to tour Hall 32 A of the Braunschweig plant. Batteries for the all-electric models made by the Volkswagen Group are produced exclusively here. The first plant designed to mass-produce batteries for the ID. family was erected on a site totalling about 49,000 square metres here in 2019. The hall is subdivided into four main areas: the aluminium warehouse, housing production, battery assembly and the assembly warehouse.

Thanks to its state-of-the-art production facilities, an operation that has achieved an exceptionally high level of precision, the Braunschweig location is one of the largest battery-system producers in Europe. The know-how that has been amassed here is tapped and employed throughout the Volkswagen Group.
