Production Sites

Making progress!

In South America the Volkswagen brand has sites in Brazil and Argentina. In October the company delivered 35,900 vehicles to customers in this region. That is an increase of 61.2 percent compared to October of 2016.

Driving forces behind this positive development are Brazil, with a 73.6 percent increase in customer deliveries, and Argentina with an increase of 44.5 percent. The compact car segment in these two markets has shown especially strong growth with the Gol and Voyage.
