Volkswagen - EV Training Expansion
Ever since Volkswagen made an about turn on Electric Vehicles, it’s been going full speed ahead. It is now ramping up training for those working in the high-voltage environment. This is in support of the $800 million investment in the Chattanooga TN plant. Training can range from 2 weeks to 6 months, and it depends on the complexity of the job a trainee will hold. Primary aspects of the training deal with working in high-voltage environment, including safe handling of high-voltage batteries, and robotics, of course.
In addition to onsite training, employees will also be able to travel to Germany to a plant where VW is already producing its Volkswagen ID.3 electric vehicle.
Chattanooga plant should start producing Volkswagen electric vehicles in 2022. VW said it is committed to building millions of electric vehicles in this decade.
We are thrilled to see Volkswagen committed to the US production of its electric vehicles. At Fremont Auto Center we are looking forward to cleaner, greener Volkswagens.
