What's it like to drive an electric car? Find out for yourself!
Due to the decisions made by the Federal Government the Autostadt will suspend operations for the time being. This includes all pavilions, the ZeitHaus, events, driving experiences, guided tours and the Autostadt restaurants. The CustomerCenter will remain open for vehicle delivery. Current information is available on: www.autostadt.de/en/visitor-information/current-news

E-mobility simply explained
Autostadt instructors provide a detailed briefing with tips on electric driving before going out on the road. They also answer frequently asked questions like "What is energy recuperation?" or "Why does an electric vehicle require less maintenance than a car with an internal combustion engine?"
Safety and hygiene measures for the driving experience programme
You can now book rides on the off-road track, safety training courses in Autostadt vehicles, as well as free "alternative drive" test drives in the electric cars again. To that end, the Autostadt has adopted comprehensive hygiene and safety measures based on official regulations to ensure the safety of participants. This includes filling out a registration form before starting the journey, and a piece of film between the driver's and co-driver's seat. The vehicles are also cleaned, ventilated and disinfected after each journey. In addition, all passengers must wear mouth and nose protection so that people accompanying them from their own household can also take part in the journey.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany and at www.dat.de.
