Last of Volkswagen's Trio of City Cars Ceases Production in Europe
With the discontinuation of the up!, the Polo now assumes the role of Volkswagen’s most accessible offering in Europe. This transition signifies a momentous shift in the Group’s approach, as there are no plans for A-segment models with combustion engines due to the strong push toward electric vehicles.
Factory Transition for Future Models
The factory in Slovakia, where the up! was manufactured, is gearing up for new models. Notably, it will soon produce the wagon-only 2024 Volkswagen Passat. Furthermore, the Skoda Superb, available in both liftback and wagon body styles, will also be produced in Bratislava.
