The VW up! has been spotted in Washington. Nice!
Volkswagen of America, executive vice president of group communications, Tony Cervone, stated, “We now have products that are German-engineered, but are more affordable” when compared to other German competitors such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz. However, “we have to have more core products.”
As a result, Volkswagen plans to increase annual production of the Chattanooga plant to 500,000 units while introducing several new models which include a less-expensive Tiguan compact SUV and a seven-passenger crossover, according to analysts IHS Automotive Consulting in Northville, Michigan.
Adding to the new model speculation further, photos of the Europe-only Volkswagen Up sub-compact model wearing Virginia rear plates and German front plates were recently taken at the Foggy Bottom metro station in Washington DC.
