The Volkswagen Group and its joint venture FAW-Volkswagen today inaugurated the new vehicle production plant in Foshan, Southern China. In just under two years, the Group has constructed a highly-advanced, resource-efficient car manufacturing facility at the new location in Guangdong province. First-stage production capacity is 300,000 vehicles per year. It is planned to double capacity in the medium term. The first vehicle to leave the assembly line in Foshan is a seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf.
