VW chooses Chattanooga, TN instead of Huntsville, AL

Apparently my source (Automotive News) and I were incorrect yesterday about the new Volkswagen site in North America, as well as Chattanooga’s location relative to Huntsville, AL.

An article on Tennesseean.com a few minutes ago said that Volkswagen had chosen the TVA supersite outside of Chattanooga, TN.

“This is a significant step forward in achieving our goals in the U.S. market and a clear sign of the Volkswagen Group’s commitment to the North American consumer,” said Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America in a news release. “Chattanooga is an excellent fit for the Volkswagen culture, having an exceptional quality of life and a long manufacturing tradition.”
