    Volkswagen said that its Hannover plant is now beginning to manufacture components for the brand’s MEB platform. Hannover, VW added, is also manufacturing flexible fast-charging stations, the hardware needed to create a mobile charging infrastructure for e-vehicles.

    In addition, a new axle assembly line was set up in Barsinghausen where some 200 employees from the nearby component plant in Hannover will fit the axles for the ID. Buzz there in the future.

    Meanwhile, Volkswagen’s Kassel plant — which has now been converted into a center of expertise for electric drives — will also develop and manufacture the pulse inverter for the Volkswagen Group’s future modular electric drive matrix.

    Braunschweig, on the other hand, deals with the battery systems’ development and manufacturing while the Salzgitter plant will produce the elementary components rotor and stator for the electric drive of the MEB.
