“Building an Electric Future” exhibit is set to open to the public on November 20, 2019.
Volkswagen is collaborating with the Petersen Automotive Museum on a new interactive exhibit that will showcase the design and construction of the vehicles of tomorrow.
The “Building an Electric Future” exhibit will celebrate Volkswagen’s history, as well as introduce Volkswagen’s new electric concept vehicles. “’Building an Electric Future’ gives a behind the scenes look at making the new age of electric and autonomous mobility happen,” said Klaus Bischoff, Executive Director of Volkswagen Design. “It shows varying perspectives from the point of view of the designer, the manufacturer, and the consumer. There’s no better opportunity to start this amazing exhibit than with the world premiere of our newest member of the ID. family.”
The exhibit will consist of five rooms showcasing Volkswagen technology, along with both physical and virtual interactive experiences, and an inside look at an ID. concept vehicle.
“’Building an Electric Future’ aims to inspire and inform our guests about the future of mobility,” said Petersen Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “We want to explore the impact an electrified future will have on a local and global scale, and we’re thrilled to collaborate with Volkswagen as it takes on today’s challenges to design the cars of tomorrow.”
