Volkswagen: Planning engine, transmission plant in the US

Besides the production facility it also looks like Volkswagen is planning an engine and transmission plant in the US as well.
A big part of VW's North American growth plan is a brand new plant scheduled to begin operation in about three years time, and to get powertrain supplies to the factory, VW is going to build both an engine and a transmission plant somewhere on this continent. Neither Canada or Mexico have been ruled out as potential locations, and Volkswagen USA CEO Stefan Jacoby told the Automotive World Congress that the company needs to localize the plants to be competitive.
