Earlier today, Volkswagen USA announced that its factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, has rolled the 250,000th Passat midsize sedan off the line.
This car is featured in the photo above and is finished in Night Blue with black leather interior. It is powered by Volkswagen’s TDI clean diesel 2-liter engine and comes fully equipped with navigation, a sunroof and 18-inch alloy wheels.

You guys might be tempted to think making 250,000 Passats is no big deal, but the first customer car to roll off the Chattanooga factory's line came on April 18, 2011, and the 100,000th on May 31, 2012.

“Two years ago our team members had just learned to build cars,” said Frank Fischer, CEO and Chairman of Volkswagen Chattanooga. “Today we celebrate a quarter of a million Volkswagen Passats from Chattanooga. I am very proud of this team.”
