How does Germany benefit from the scrapping premium? The second edition of VIAVISION is putting special emphasis on this question. VIAVISION sets out to eliminate common prejudices and illustrates how the scrapping premium cannot only contribute to a respectful treatment of the environment, but also helps to safeguard jobs.

Furthermore, we are taking a look at the issue of recycling. Thanks to the Volkswagen-SiCon Process, Volkswagen is able to recycle up to 95 percent of an old vehicle. In other areas the focus is on sustainability as well: in April, northern Germany's largest photovoltaic system was inaugurated on the roofs of the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg.

Other topics on the agenda include: solar technology in the car, autonomous vehicles, and driver-assistance systems.
