The Volk­swa­gen Group is ex­pand­ing its in­dus­trial foot­print in the United States and has awarded the pro­duc­tion of the new mid­size SUV to the Chat­tanooga plant in Ten­nessee.

Volk­swa­gen Group will be in­vest­ing US$900 mil­lion in the pro­duc­tion of a newly de­vel­oped, seven-pas­sen­ger SUV, and cre­at­ing 2000 additional jobs in the United States. About US$600 mil­lion will be in­vested in Ten­nessee.

The United States of Amer­ica is one of the most im­por­tant mar­kets for Volk­swa­gen, Volk­swa­gen Ak­tienge­sellschaft board of man­age­ment chair­man Prof Dr Martin Win­terkorn said.

‘‘We are now launch­ing the sec­ond phase of the Volk­swa­gen cam­paign in the US. With the mid­size SUV, the ex­pan­sion of the Chat­tanooga plant and the new de­vel­op­ment cen­tre, the fo­cus is on the wishes of the US cus­tomer. From 2014 to 2018, the Volk­swa­gen Group will be in­vest­ing more than US$7 bil­lion in the United States and Mex­ico.
