Sixth Generation Golf to Enter Market in 2008

Text from
FRANKFURT (AFX) - Volkswagen AG's new version of its Golf model will enter the market in 2008, a year earlier than the automaker had originally planned, chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Wolfgang Bernhard told Der Spiegel magazine.

The current model is burdened by high production costs, with each car taking 48 hours to be manufactured on the assembly line. Door construction alone costs about 300 eur in needless reworking. A new model will take both less time and money to produce, Bernhard told the magazine.

Rival car companies are able to produce comparable models in half the time, reported Spiegel.
