Report: Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant pushing for production for seven-seater crossover

AutomotiveNews reports that Volkswagen is on the verge of deciding whether to give their rumored seven-seater passenger SUV crossover the green light for production. Volkswagen revealed a concept car called the 2013 CrossBlue Concept at this year’s Detroit Auto Show in January, which posed as VW’s way of gauging market interest for the growing full-size crossover segment.

Now, Volkswagen’s Frank Fischer, CEO of VW America’s Chattanooga Operations, said that Volkswagen will decide on the CrossBlue Concept’s production fate later this year, while expressing confidence that his team is “working hard to get this as a second vehicle.” Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant in Tennessee is home to the production of the current Passat sedan and will also provide an assembly line for the production CrossBlue Concept, should it be approved.

If the Chattanooga plant doesn’t receive the contract to produce the SUV, the crossover will be assembled at Volkswagen’s plant in Puebla, Mexico.
