By the results of 2018, the Volkswagen Group Rus Company produced 200 thousand cars in Russia, which is more by 19.4% than a year ago. Thus, the annual production of the Volkswagen Group Rus in 2018 was a record since the start of the local assembly. At the same time, 143.5 thousand cars left the assembly line of the plant in Kaluga - more by 21.1% than in 2017. In addition, at the company's facilities in Nizhny Novgorod, the production of Volkswagen and Skoda cars was 56.5 thousand cars (+ 15.3%), informed the press service of Volkswagen Group Rus. At the engine manufacturing plant in Kaluga 161,000 engines were assembled in 2018, an increase of 56.3% in compare with the previous year.

As it was noted, the achievement of the production record in 2018 was made possible thanks to the growing demand in the Russian market and the high level of local assembly efficiency.

“The reaching of the mark of 200 thousand cars produced during the year is an important indicator for the Volkswagen Group Rus, reflecting the high popularity of our car brands among customers and the efficiency of organizing a local assembly. Exceeding of the capacity of the engine manufacturing plant, a quarter of products of which went abroad in 2018, proves that Russian production can be in demand and competitive around the world, ” - said Markus Ozegovich, the General Director of Volkswagen Group Rus.
