Volkswagen Marks Record 200 Million Vehicles Milestone with XL Sport

Volkswagen announced that the car maker produced their 200 millionth car.

German Volkswagen Group has now produced 200 million vehicles. Volkswagen is one of the few manufacturers in the world to have reached this huge milestone. VW picked the sports car study Volkswagen XL Sport as the 200 millionth Group vehicle.

The Volkswagen Group has been able to double the number of vehicles produced within a few years. In 1999, the Group celebrated the 100 million vehicle mark with an anniversary New Beetle. In the meantime, customers can choose from a unique individual mobility portfolio ranging from motorcycles through to supercars. Vehicles are produced at 106 plants in 27 countries.

As its latest model, Volkswagen is presenting the XL Sport at the Paris Motor Show. The highly efficient sports car design study is driven by the world’s most powerful twin-cylinder engine. 200 PS from the V2 engine of the Ducati 1199 Superleggera take the high tech driving machine manufactured from carbon and magnesium to a top speed of 270 km/h. The Volkswagen XL Sport symbolizes the innovative power and passion of the brand as well as the technical competence and success of the entire Volkswagen Group.

“We are proud to have produced 200 million vehicles. This impressive figure also bears witness to our customers’ confidence in the Group. For Volkswagen, success and responsibility are inseparable. This is why we are pleased to support Catherine Deneuve in her commitment to “Cinema for Peace”, said Winterkorn.

Volkswagen will debut new commercials tomorrow staring Star Trek actors Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner. The legendary actors will promote the e-Golf.
