The approximately 4,000 employees of the Taubaté plant have been working on the new up! for several weeks now. One of them is Weslley Almeida da Costa (above). “I am proud of being part of a team which is building a world-famous Volkswagen here in Brazil,” he says. To produce the small car, some changes had to be made at the plant, located 130 kilometers from São Paulo – for example, in the press plant, the body shop, the paint shop, and final assembly.
