VW Passat Sales Surge

Volkswagen‘s Chattanooga auto assembly plant is pressed to keep up with demand for the company’s fuel-sipping diesel version of its new Passat sedan, officials said Thursday.

“It has taken off very well,” said Jonathan Browning, VW of America’s chief executive.

VW posted total U.S. February sales of 30,577 vehicles, up 42.5 percent over the same month a year ago. The automaker reported its best February in America since 1973.

Browning said in a conference call with analysts and reporters that sales of the Chattanooga-made Passat sedan hit 8,189 for the month, its best since August 2001.
