Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Volkswagen de Mexico has surpassed a historic milestone by rolling out the 10 millionth car from its assembly line at its Puebla plant.

10 millionth VW to be built in Mexico

The jubilee car is a VW Beetle GSR variant painted in a yellow and black color theme. To commemorate the occasion, VW has established an installation at the plant that has three generations of the iconic Beetle on display in a spiral format.

The German stalwart has been operating in Mexico for about half a century and has established a very strong foothold in the region. The Puebla plant is the second largest among the company’s manufacturing facilities across the globe.

Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Hubert Waltl, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand said –

With the 10 millionth car that Volkswagen de Mexico celebrates today, the company is reaching a further milestone in its history.
