VW Builds 700,000th US Passat,
Tues May 8: VW’s Chattanooga plant reached a milestone. It assembled its 700,000th Passat—a Reflex Silver GT model with VR6 engine. The limited-edition GT was designed by the firm’s North American engineering hub in Tennessee and its California Design Center. VW claims the Passat GT is a sports sedan that combines comfort and good fuel economy. The car features a sport suspension that lowers the vehicle’s stance. A black roof, 19-inch wheels and GTI-like red accents set this car apart from the mainstream midsize sedan.
