CUAUTLANCINGO – In the second half of July the production of the Beetle model at the Volkswagen plant, located in the municipality of Cuautlancingo, Puebla, will be coming to an end; regardless of that, job losses are ruled out, since the plant’s workforce will be dedicated to the manufacture of the Tiguan truck.
This was announced by the general minister of the Independent Union of Workers of the Volkswagen Automotive Industry of Mexico (Sitiavw), Rey David García Avendaño, who explained that this had been notified by the company since last year.
