The argument is that things shouldn’t go back to “normal”, because obviously, whatever that “normal” was, wasn’t really normal, which is why what happened, happened, and the world has come to a stop. Instead, things should get better and we all should be more respectful of our planet, the only known place in this universe that supports life.

Either way, the world must get back to work in order to survive. As for the automotive industry, most of them had extended the production suspension and now it’s time to gradually bring the workers back into the factories. The Volkswagen plant in Zwickau is gradually restarting the production of electric cars.

Production of the all-electric ID.3 resumed on Thursday (23 April), with reduced capacity. Initially, 50 units will be produced per day, which corresponds to approximately one-third of the production volume prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Zwickau is Volkswagen’s first vehicle plant in Germany to cautiously resume production following the suspension that began in mid-March. Production has also already resumed at almost all Volkswagen plants in China, the company said. The Chemnitz engine plant will also begin gradually ramping up production, followed by the phased resumption of Golf Variant production at Zwickau on April 27, 2020.

On the same day, the Gläserne Manufaktur Dresden will recommence production of the e-Golf at reduced capacity. Customers have been able to collect their new cars in Dresden since April 20, VW added.
