BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC-TV, MyFoxAL.com) -- The latest Alabama news from the Associated Press.
Volkswagen says it will provide details on new US production
plant in July
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Volkswagen AG, Europe's largest
carmaker, said today it will outline plans for a production plant
in the U.S. in July.
The company says sites in the states of Alabama, Tennessee and
Michigan have been named in the running for the new plant --
confirming a report in the German business daily Handelsblatt. But
Volkswagen wouldn't yet say where the plant will be.
Volkswagen spokesman Andreas Meurer says any plans will have to
be approved by the company's supervisory board, and that actual
production at the plant won't start until at least 2010.
Volkswagen closed its last U.S. production plant in 1988.
