Volkswagen is getting serious in Malaysia, finally. Take that Proton!
Playing footise with Malysia’s Proton was a perennial on again, off again affair that led to nothing. Last time, it looked like VW would set up a CKD operation in Malaysia by themselves, but now it seems that they have found a partner. Not Proton. Not again.
It is reported that DRB-HICOM Bhd and Volkswagen AG signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on the assembly and manufacturing of Volkswagen vehicles in Malaysia. The goal is to produce CKD (completely knocked down) Volkswagen in Malaysia.
