Volkswagen Opens Engine Plant in Silao, Central Mexico
Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn
proudly opened VW's brand new plant in Central Mexico. VW's now 100th plant
worldwide is located in Silao, near the city of León. For the automaker
it's a double milestone. CEO Martin Winterkorn says "it's pure coincidence
that the opening of our 100th plant here in Mexico just happens to fall on
the exact same day VW began business in Mexico. So it's our 100th factory
and the 49th anniversary of VW in Mexico."
Volkswagen employees proudly celebrated the historic launch of the new
production line, the carmaker's 100th plant is the latest symbol of VW's
success. It's also a clear signal for the future. VW wants to continue
growing and it's counting on Mexico and the North American market. The idea
is also to build cars in the countries where they're sold giving the brand
a national identity in countries like Mexico, that's making a lot of people
Last year VW built more than 600,000 vehicles in Mexico alone. Now the
Silao plant is bringing another 700 employees into the VW family. They are
said to produce up to 330,000 fuel efficient TSI motors a year. For
president Peña Nieto the event was also a personal significance; he shared
with Mr. Winterkorn some of his favorite VW memories: "when the Mexican
president saw the Beetle he told me it reminded him of his youth, because
he himself owned a Beetle as a young man. And when he saw the Passta he
said "Mr. Winterkorn I got married in a black Passat like this one", so the
president has very fond memories of VW.
VW & Mexico, a success story with a new chapter called Silao, and Audi
isn't far behind, it's said to open its first Mexican plant in 2016.

VW's New Chattanooga Plant
With a $1 billion investment, up to 2,000 initial jobs, and the potential
to generate $12 billion in growth, Volkswagen's new Chattanooga plant is
well along the way to being a welcome addition to the South. But here's
another impressive stat from this high-tech wonder: it's already received
the highest engineering certification - ISO 9001:2008 - before the first
2012 Passat has even rolled off the line.
The E-Bugster concept car was revealed at the 2012 North American
International Auto Show. The name "E-Bugster" is a combination of "E" for
electric, "Bug," the American nickname for the Beetle, and "speedster,"
which typically describes an open-top two-seater.
