They work annually with more than 600 independent Volkswagen dealerships, but that’s not all. The Volkswagen Group of America is also responsible for research and development, Volkswagen parts distribution, Volkswagen financial services, marketing, and more! Their U.S. headquarters is located in Herndon, VA.

Where Are Volkswagen Cars Built?

These are the vehicles still being made on that site:

The Volkswagen Group of America also directs all activities at the Volkswagen manufacturing facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The plant, which dates from 2011, currently employs around 2,000 people, and produces about 150,000 cars and SUVs a year!

Which Volkswagen cars and SUVs are built in the U.S.? The Chattanooga plant was initially focused firmly on the production of the Volkswagen Passat, a midsize car designed with the American consumer in mind. Beginning in 2017, production at the plant expanded to cover the new Volkswagen Atlas, a three-row SUV that’s helping more and more families “Drive Bigger”!
