Chattanooga Has Officially Produced 1,000,000 Cars

The millionth vehicle ever produced at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant has rolled off the line. The car is an Aurora Red 2020 Passat R-Line.

“It’s gratifying to me that our team is back to work and able to mark yet another key milestone since the opening of VW’s Chattanooga plant,” said Tom du Plessis, president and CEO of Volkswagen Chattanooga. “Part of us getting back to normal is taking time to recognize these important achievements which are only possible because of the hard work and commitment of our exceptional team here in Chattanooga.”

The plant has been producing Passats since 2011. It now produces Atlas and Atlas Cross Sports, as well, and exports to Canada, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, and the Middle East.

The plant will soon also play host to production of electric vehicles as the ID.4 electric crossover will eventually be produced there.
