The new model has been developed by Volkswagen South America and will be manufactured initially at the Anchieta factory, in São Bernardo do Campo, SP, to be commercialized in the South American market. In a second moment, the model will be made also in Europe.
First model developed in the region that will be manufactured and commercialized also in the European market, one of the world's most competitive", says Pablo Di Si, president and CEO of Volkswagen Latin America. "Since 2017, we have fully renewed our portfolio, in the largest product offensive in Volkswagen's history in the region. The New Brand Design also inaugurates our New Brand Design in South America. This is much more than a new brand logo. It is a brand attitude, with new colors, closer to people", emphasizes Di Si.
