VW Models That WON’T Be Locally Assembled

20th September 2010. Following the announcement in August on the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with DRB-HICOM Berhad to collaborate on local assembly, Volkswagen would like to reiterate the content of the MoU that both parties are still in the early stage of investigating local vehicle assembly. The joint plans envisage the production of Volkswagen models in Malaysia from 2012 onwards. The matter is still under negotiations and as a policy, Volkswagen will not comment on ongoing discussions. Suffice it to say, the models / variants in negotiations to be locally assembled will not be the models which are currently offered in Malaysia. So this means that the Beetle, Golf TSI, Passat CC, Golf GTi, EOS and may be also the Polo will not be locally assembled in order for their resale value to remain high as it is right now.
So what models could be locally assembled.

Well we guess the Amarok pickup truck,

the Touran/Sharan MPV and

the Jetta which is slated for release next year.
