Volkswagen SUV line-up has successfully managed the last few years with its full size Touareg and its compact sized Tiguan but the company has confirmed plans are afoot to produce a mid-size version as well.
Volkswagen's SUV line-up has successfully managed the last few years with its full-size Touareg and its compact Tiguan but the company has confirmed plans are afoot to produce a mid-size version as well.
The news stems from Jonathan Browning, CEO of Volkswagen of American during a visit to Detroit on Wednesday. He also added, "it's a great opportunity, if you could give it to me tomorrow, I would take it."
There is no time frame of when the vehicle could arrive in dealerships but the confident admission that the company has it under consideration suggests the possibility of production is strong.
Volkswagen's facility in Tennessee is penciled in to conduct the production phase of the model. The plant's capacity is currently set at 150,000 annual units which will be boosted by a further 30,000 in 2013 with the addition of 1000 new workers. But, with an additional facility at the location, Tennessee could produce as many as 500,000 units per year.
