Incredible Volkswagen Trailer Assist Commercial Makes You Forget the Diesel Scandal

An incredible Volkswagen ad from Norway makes you forget for a couple minutes the Volkswagen Emissions scandal.

In a new Volkswagen commercial released in Norway, a Passat can be seen backing up a trailer in high speed. The driver parks the trailer in high speed. He can be seen overtaking cars in reverse and backing up the trailer up a parking garage ramp. 

People on the street can't believe what they see. This is an incredible stunt video, but there is actually no stunt driver able to backing up a car with a trailer at high speeds like you see in the commercial below spotted by Adland.

Volkswagen reveals how they pulled the trailer assist stunt really works in a behind the scene video below. The stunt team has built a car that looks like a trailer. It is the trailer that pulls the Passat and not vice versa - genius!

Watch the behind the scene video below.

Volkswagen has a real Trailer assist feature, but it is not for high speed backing up. It uses a camera in the back to automatically steer the trailer. It works similar to the automatic parking feature. Watch how VW's trailer assist works below.

Volkswagen's emission scandal is far from over. Lawsuits are likely to go on for years and the German car maker will end up paying billions to get the scandal behind them.

Volkswagen is likely not advertising in the Super Bowl 50. The car maker has already sat out the Super Bowl last year.
