VW plant reaches production milestone

Posted:

CHATTANOOGA (AP) - Volkswagen has reached another production milestone at its assembly plant in Chattanooga.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the 250,000 Passat midsize sedan has rolled off the assembly line.

The milestone announced Thursday comes barely more than two years since production began at the Tennessee plant.

The Chattanooga plant completed its 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 during a meeting this week.
