Tarraco production begins at Wolfsburg
For the first time in about 20 years, Volkswagen’s Wolfsburg plant has begun production of the SEAT Tarraco.
In Wolfsburg, the Spanish model will roll off the production line together with the Volkswagen models Tiguan and Touran. The step towards multi-brand production will boost the capacity deployment of Volkswagen’s main plant.
The production of the Tarraco in Wolfsburg is part of the Pact for the Future concluded by the company and the Works Council at the end of 2016.
Volkswagen member of the board for production and logistics Dr Andreas Tostmann said, ‘A competent, globally leading production network across the group is one of the biggest levers for efficiency enhancement. The SEAT Tarraco is an example of the way more plants within the group-wide production network will produce vehicles for several group brands at the same time in the future.’
This is the fifth time that Volkswagen’s main plant in Wolfsburg has produced a model for another group brand.
