10,000 down, millions to go: Volkswagen Chattanooga Builds 10,000th Car

We considered getting a cake to celebrate the 10,000th Passat built in Volkswagen’s new Chattanooga facility, but then we realized that it would be really hard to find that many candles. Instead, we gathered around Passat number 10,000, a white TDI clean diesel with a premium chrome package, for the photo you see below.

This is a milestone, but like any proud parents, we love Passats numbers 1through 9,999 just as much as we love this car, and we can’t wait to build many, many more. In fact, we’re on schedule to build 150,000 a year right here in Tennessee.

The all-new 2012 Passat goes on sale in mid-September.
