VW Golf To Be Built In Mexico Beginning In 2014

There is no better way to continue the word of mouth of a dynamite product than to have a global presence with that dynamite product. This type of notoriety can happen when you not only sell globally but when you manufacture globally too.

It has just been announced that Volkswagen will be building their uber-popular VW Golf in Puebla, Mexico.  Beginning in 2014, production of the 7th generation Golf will commence and this is all in the effort to have those Volkswagens sold in North America and/or South America to also being built in North America. Already, there is a process in place to make sure the Passats for North America are being built in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The Beetle and the Jetta already call Puebla, Mexico their manufacturing home so to add the Golf is going to take some work but many of the kinks in logistics and operations have already been ironed away.

“Producing the Golf in Puebla, Mexico signals a continued commitment to the North American market and allows Volkswagen to make further strides towards the goal of building more than 75 percent of the cars Volkswagen of America sells in the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) region,” said Jonathan Browning, President, Volkswagen of America, Inc. according to the official Volkswagen press release. “For more than 40 years, Puebla has been manufacturing quality Volkswagens for the U.S. and markets around the world and we are thrilled that the next-generation Golf will be added to the production line.”
