NEW YORK, April 12 Volkswagen AG's
top U.S. executive said the German automaker plans to build
another new sport utility vehicle at its Chattanooga, Tennessee
plant as demand surges for larger vehicles.
The world's largest automaker said in 2014 it planned $900
million to build a new SUV in Tennessee and VW will start
selling its new seven-seat VW Atlas SUV in May. VW Group of
America chief executive Hinrich Woebcken told reporters at the
New York auto show the automaker also plans to build a smaller
five-seat SUV in Tennessee but he declined to say when
production will begin.
