Incorporating automation and 5g connectivity, the technology will increase efficiency and allow for flexibility in the kinds of vehicles produced. Looking to the future, the model is also said to allow new e.Go factories to be built twice as fast and at a fraction of the cost of traditional automotive manufacturing facilities.
“Our automotive industry needs a fast network directly where the newest and most innovative cars are built. Data is an important fuel for modern automobile production,” said Hannes Ametsreiter, Head of Vodafone Germany. Günther Schuh, CEO of e.GO Mobile AG said: “The assembly plant for e.GO Life is a true Industry 4.0 factory. In other words, it is fully networked in terms of information technology. Connectivity links the physical and the digital world.”
