Volkswagen is now attempting to reduce this manufacturing time by enabling it at the new Trinity facility, which is set to open in 2026.
“Our objective is clear: we want to create new records in our manufacturing,” Volkswagen’s production head Christian Volmer told Reuters. “If we can manufacture the car in a record period of 10 hours, we will have accomplished something amazing.”
Volkswagen still requires 30 hours to build the Y model until Tesla needs only ten hours. Due to the launch of Tesla’s new facility, which is regarded the major competitor, demand for VW has lately surged in Germany, prompting the company to raise manufacturing capacity.
