With the T-Roc Cabriolet, Volkswagen is set to cross this open vehicle design over into the SUVsegment, which is experience especially strong growth right now. Current plans foresee up to 20,000 vehicles rolling off the production line in Osnabrück every year after the initial start-up phase. "This is giving the plant excellent prospects for the future," notes CEO Herbert Diess, who also referred to "the Osnabrück team’s decades of experience in convertibles." Over 330,000 soft-top Beetles are just some of the many vehicles that have rolled off the production line at this plant. Today, around 2,300 employees are involved in manufacturing the Volkswagen Tiguan and Porsche Cayman, as well as painting parts for the Škoda Fabia.
