This is a major capital investment for Puebla, as a large portion of the State’s GDP is based on the automotive industry.

From this year forward, Volkswagen is integrating into its “Made in Mexico” portfolio a new model. It is the Tiguan SUV, which had its production line installed at the plant owned by VW in Puebla for the last 50 years. 

With this platform, VW contributed to the automotive sector investment with a total amount of $1 billion. 

This model adds up to the Golf, New Jetta and Beetle manufacturing operations, prompting 1,900 new hirings. The Tiguan line will have a production capacity of 500 units daily, which will be destined mainly to the national market and the American continent.
