Since the beginning of the year, Volkswagen’s factory in Hefei, capital of east China’s Anhui province, has been operating at full capacity to produce new energy vehicles (NEVs) for the European market.

In the advanced factory, around a thousand robots are assigned to perform various tasks and automated guided vehicles transport materials in an orderly manner. At the same time, industrial computed tomography performs highly efficient quality analysis.

With an investment of more than 30 billion yuan (R$21 billion), Volkswagen has built a new center in Hefei that covers the entire value chain, from research and development (R&D) to manufacturing, sales and service of NEVs.

As China accelerates the development of modern industrial systems and scientific and technological innovation, many companies, such as Volkswagen, are prioritizing their investments in high-tech industries and seeking new business opportunities.

“With our ‘in China for China’ strategy, we will develop much more technology here in the future to further harness the local innovative strength and respond more quickly to the needs of Chinese customers,” said Erwin Gabardi, CEO of Volkswagen Anhui.
