Volkswagen’s Automated Garage

Volkswagen has a cool automobile storage facility in Wolfsburg, Germany – the multi-story parking garage can store the same number of car as a comparable facility in the US, but takes only 20% of the space. The automated retrieval system also allows the cars to be selected and delivered in less time and without the potential of being damaged by the attendant. Let’s just hope that the power doesn’t go out. Otherwise, both you and your vehicle are stuck.

Collecting your new car is an event in itself. “In a fully automated procedure, your new car is brought down to you from one of the 20-story Car Towers. Large signboards in the Customer Center show you when your turn has come. Then, you’re handed the keys, your picture is taken, the glass doors open and your brand-new car appears. You’re all set to go”.
