Volkswagen finishes the year with record production of carsDecember 31, 2017
The Germans are successfully leading a strategic creeping expansion in the global market for the year in a row. And they hasten to report that this year they will overcome the milestone of 6,000,000 cars.
The German automotive concern Volkswagen in 2017 will beat its next record for the production of new cars. On Sunday, December 31, a 6 millionth copy will be delivered from the assembly line this year.
A world-famous company from Wolfsburg collects 60 models in more than 50 factories in 14 countries. In 2017 the manufacturer introduced absolutely new models of T-Roc, Tiguan Allspace and Atlas crossovers (Arteon sedan can not be considered such because it is the successor of Passat CC). The most popular models of the brand in the past 12 months were Polo, Golf, Jetta, Passat and Santana, if we consider China separately.
According to the estimates of representatives of the concern, 150 million cars have been produced under the Volkswagen brand in the whole history. The biggest long-liver was the Volkswagen Beetle. It existed on the conveyor for 72 years. And there are rumors that the company will soon release a new generation that will become an electric car. Also in the plans of the Germans until 2020 to expand the range of crossovers to 19 models. True, not all of them will be global.
The day before it became known that Volkswagen increases the production of E-Golf twice.
