250,000 Touaregs celebrated

BRATISLAVA / WOLFSBURG - Volkswagen Slovakia, a.s. in Bratislava has produced the two hundred fifty thousandth Touareg. The vehicle is a reflex-silver metallic Touareg with a 5 litre, V10 TDI engine producing 250 kW of power.

“With its intricate four-wheel drive technology, the Touareg stands for driving safety both on and off the road," said Thomas Schmall, Chairman of the Board of Volkswagen Slovakia, a.s., as the vehicle rolled off the production line. The numerous awards which the well-appointed SUV has received in the past months back up this claim.

Volkswagen Slovakia, a.s. has been building the Touareg since 2002 in Bratislava, which is the only production site for this vehicle.
