Blog: Glenn BrooksWhat Shanghai Volkswagen's new Changsha plant will build

Glenn Brooks | 17 May 2013

The SVW joint venture has just announced its new 300,000/annum plant for Changsha in Hunan province. But what models will be made there?

I've just added some new information to PLDB, the global vehicle database that I created and maintain for just-auto. So far, it would appear that two vehicles will be manufactured at Changsha. I'll give you a hint about one of them - it will also be built in the US, and we saw it not so long ago as a concept.

If you're already a PLDB subscriber, just search by Changsha and you'll see the latest Volkswagen Group models to have been updated.
