Volkswagen Group China’s mega-factory in Foshan will strengthen e-mobility strategy in China
  • The Foshan Plant Phase II is key to the Volkswagen Group’s overall China strategy, strengthening its presence in South China.
  • Prof. Dr. Jochem Heizmann President and CEO Volkswagen Group China: “We are creating a leading edge infrastructure to further activate our broad SUV offensive and our e-Mobility strategy ‘Roadmap E.”
  • FAW-Volkswagen’s new factory will further increase the company’s localization efforts, provide advanced technologies and raise the production capabilities of the Foshan production site to 600,000 vehicles annually.

Through the completion of the Foshan Plant Phase II, the Foshan production site’s capacity will double from 300,000 to 600,000 cars annually. As the first SUV-model of the Volkswagen brand built by FAW-Volkswagen, the T-Roc successfully rolled off the line in April this year. Together with the Audi Q2L, which will also start production this year, it is a vital building block in the fast growing SUV segment.
