The "Think Blue.", which principle presented in 2010, transfers VW’s well-known BlueMotion tech to other areas of the company and everyday situations. This provides employees and customers with motivation to act in an environmentally responsible way.
"Responsible mobility goes hand in hand with environmentally compatible production. This is why Volkswagen is forging ahead with its "Think blue. Factory." concept. Our aim is to significantly enhance energy efficiency in production at the same time as markedly reducing emissions and the use of resources," according to Hubert Waltl, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand with responsibility for Production and Logistics.
Apart from a selection of especially eco-friendly vehicles in the current model lineup, visitors can expect a glimpse of mobility in the future. The main focus is on the new Bulli, an electric-powered compact study vehicle celebrating its German premiere in Hanover. This van is a zero-emission vehicle, powered by an electric motor that receives its power from a 40 kWh lithium ion battery, allowing a range of up to 300 kilometers. At a recharging point especially designed for electric vehicles, the battery can be fully recharged in less than an hour.
Hannover Messe is one of the world's biggest technology showcases. A total of 6,500 exhibitors from 65 countries are presenting their products and expertise in the large exhibition area.
“Furthermore, Hannover Messe offers those who are interested in a career with Europe's largest automaker an opportunity to obtain comprehensive information. The Volkswagen HR marketing team will be available for personal discussions on the stand in Hall 15,” Volkswagen says.
