you have to be just blown away by it. here in america we have stink, ugly places that make cars, yet, the germans have figured out how to make it look good, not just good, but somehow its almost sexual!

You have to note however, that kind of factory isn't that cost efficient. That's why they will never make Golfs there.
But, see that storage silo near the end of the clip? VW has a giant factory in Wolfsburg and in there they actually build Golfs and other normal cars. And still....

They have TWO fully automated storage silos there. So they render some of the high tech seen on Phaeton factory to other plants as well.

I was supposed to do actual writing today, and after I did about a third of what I planned, I found myself on the intertubes. This time, I found this.

Skoda Octavia. Nice and clean, but no multi bolt gun.

Sindelfingen, probably the most impressive assembly line. The dashboard robot is very cool. He's slower than humans would be, but he's cool.

Bremen have faster dashboard robot due to larger ingress. The door seal robot is very cool.

More (literally) Mercedes here. Less robots.

Fiat Mexico

Fiat Italy

Cruze Lordstown

New Civic Swindon

Audi Ingolstadt. Runner up.

Mercedes is our winner today. There was also a Unimog assembly video but having both Skodas AND Unimogs in the same post would make Narf reach critical mass.

Update
This one is sad. The Antwerp plant that made my car was closed a year ago, and this was the final car to roll off the line. Very emotional.

I found an old Assemblyline documentation about the Ford Focus mk1 in Saarlouis.

It's made for the Kid's show "Die Maus" so it's a bit funny. :lol:

Here's one from Blue-Bird, wish they'd show even more of the assembly process but oh well:

And here's one from the show "Made in America" They visited Thomas Built Buses:

KIA have been watching too much Stargate and thought "I like the theme song, but I like it more when I play it five times simultaneously". So they asked a man to make such a piece of music. What I'm saying here is that this video is not really a assembly line video, it's a speedrun through the assembly with huge virtual letters skidding around with an extremely over the top soundtrack. That I have replayed several times now.


Also let's go to GMMP (General Motors Manufacturing Poland) to have a more detailed look. Unfortunately in wrong aspect ratio and very much made at home (so it's got pirates in it) but quite detailed.


Also I notice that SaabCarsOfficial channel on Youtube now has a "LIKE A BOSS" button, favourites things like "TotallySlurpy Sexy Intro" and the feed says stuff like "PROOF I OWN THIS CHANNEL!!!!!!!!! XD"

I wonder if the web editor brought his laptop home and gave it to his kid without logging out.

I know, I don't like pushing the replay button. But I have to. It changes music at 0:45 though.

Great News? follows below


This has no KIA-music so you do get a sense of the factory enviroment with all it's noises. And it's not very clean and working conditions wouldnt pass in a western country, poor ergonomics, no rolling floor except when vehicle needs it etc.

Let's look at an Alfa 4C, basically hand made (by Maserati).
