The main plant for the Polo, with around 5,000 employees, is located in the Spanish province of Navarra, just outside its capital, Pamplona. The small car has been built here since 1984; 244,127 vehicles came off the line in 2017. In December 2018, the production of the T-Cross started; for the first time, two models are now being manufactured at the site. Volkswagen is investing around one billion euros in the production of both models.
The T-Cross is Volkswagen smallest SUV. It is based on the Polo platform and is 4.11 meters long. Besides Spain, the T-Cross is also manufactured in China (Anting) and Brazil (Curitiba) – the regions of the world in which the compact SUV segment is set to double in the next ten years. We asked the employees in Pamplona how they like the "new one".
