VW Chooses Turkey for E. European Plant
Volkswagen AG’s supervisory board has selected Turkey as the location of a new assembly plant that will open 3-4 years from now.
Last November VW indicated it would need a new factory in the region after 2022 as some of its existing capacity in Germany is retooled to make electric vehicles.
Expected to provide 350,000 units of annual capacity, the new plant also will relieve capacity constraints at the group’s Skoda plant in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic, according to Automotive News.
AN says the facility will make vehicles for the SEAT, Skoda and VW brands, including the SEAT Ateca and Skoda Karoq small crossover vehicles.
I'm not talking about a plastic Revell model of a '57 Chevy, but a real vehicle, one that rolls off an assembly line in 1999 with another 99,999 just like it right behind. Is it possible, or is this just a fantasy of the marketing department at Elmer's?
Additive manufacturing (AM) is just one manufacturing method that drives advanced mobility forward and also has a history of embracing the digital connectivity demanded by this trend.
