Puebla’s production palette has helped it evolve from a domestic production site to one that makes cars for markets around the world. Vehicles from Puebla are now exported to more than a hundred countries. Since 2013, a subsidiary plant in Silao has been supplying the Puebla plant, and the U.S. Chattanooga plant, with the latest generation of engines.
Certain milestones make the employees especially proud. In September 1980, for example, the millionth vehicle was produced. Today, they make the Jetta, the Beetle, the Beetle Convertible2, the Golf, the Golf Variant3 and the Tiguan primarily for North America, and have passed the 11 million mark for number of vehicles built. And there’s another strong global model awaiting its launch – the new Jetta, which will celebrate its world premiere in Detroit in January.
