Volkswagen is to become a key, profitable volume supplier in North America, too. The brand is going on the offensive in the region with the new models tailored to the American market. Two new models will be launched on the US market each year until 2020: this year sees the debut of the new Jetta and the Arteon, with the new Passat and a further SUV to follow in 2019 – all based on MQB technology. The first of a new family of full battery-electric vehicles will be added starting in 2020 and will be based on the newly developed Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB). In the next three years alone, the company will invest a total of more than US$3.3 billion in North America.
