Richard Hammond gets to work on the world's biggest car assembly line at Volkswagen in Wolfsberg, Germany.
Richard Hammond takes us along for an exclusive tour to the world's biggest car assembly line at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsberg, Germany, and what lies on the inside is incredible!
Volkswagen is without a doubt one of the world's biggest car manufacturers and their plant in Wolfberg, Germany. It holds the title of having the longest production line of over 12 miles long, and there are four of them! Each specific station has just 60 seconds to complete their specific tasks or else they risk holding up the entire production line, which can be quite costly. The workers who assemble at their stations are so time-efficient that holding up the production line is a very rare event.
Over 800,000 cars roll off this plant every year, and that is made possible thanks to this plant having four different production lines rolling. So this factory, therefore, can assemble four different Volkswagen models at the same time.
The Volkswagen plant in Wolfsberg also owns the title of having the biggest car paint shop in Europe. It streches over eight floors and covers an area the size of New York's Grand Central Station!
