Volkswagen plans special shifts for the Golf
As a result of the high demand for the new Golf throughout Europe, with more than 100,000 orders, Volkswagen is planning additional special shifts at its main plant in Wolfsburg. The plans include three additional early shifts on Saturdays in the first quarter of the year, producing 2000 additional vehicles for the European market.
The seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf has got off to a successful start on the market. Despite the technical modifications to production equipment required at the Wolfsburg and Zwickau plants, more than 800,000 Golfs were once again delivered in 2012. No other European car is more successful or more popular. For more than nine years, the Golf has headed the list of best-selling cars in Europe without interruption. In Germany, the Golf has even been the market leader for 37 years.
