According to a report by Automobilwoche, who spoke with Volkswagen’s production chief Jochem Heizmann, production of the Up! won’t start until after March 2011.
“As we now see it, we will start regular production for Volkswagen and Skoda in the second half of 2011,” he said.
A Volkswagen executive said the cause for the delay was “time-consuming petty jealousies between various departments and the participating brands.”
