Volkswagen will sell China-built car in USA
Volkswagen will sell in North America a car built in China. The model is a reworked version of the next-generation Passat.
The Chinese company will be responsible for the car’s exterior and interior styling. Models for North America and China will be largely the same, says Gu. “Tastes in China and North America in the main features are similar,” he says. “There will be some differences in the smaller details, though.”
The Chinese Passat will feature a more luxurious interior, especially in the rear seat, vanity mirrors, more legroom and DVD screens for rear-seat passengers.
The car will be built on VW’s next-generation Passat platform that will be developed in Germany, says Volkswagen China spokesman Kai Grueber.
