Volkswagen Chattanooga builds 250,000th Passat sedan

Volkswagen Chattanooga announced that its workforce has produced the 250,000th Passat mid-sized sedan.

The car, produced in Volkswagen's LEED Platinum-certified factory, is night blue with black leather interior. It is powered by Volkswagen's high-mileage TDI
clean-diesel engine and features navigation, a sunroof and 18-inch alloy wheels. It also offers the amazing sonic experience provided by the Volkswagen Fender premium audio system.

"Two years ago our team members had just learned to build cars," said Frank Fischer, CEO and Chairman of Volkswagen Chattanooga. "Today we celebrate a quarter-of-a-million Volkswagen Passats from Chattanooga. I am very proud of this team."

The Volkswagen Chattanooga team celebrated completion of the first customer car on April 18, 2011, and the 100,000th on May 31, 2012. The 250,000 milestone sedan was celebrated with the nearly 2,700 team members.
