Volkswagen currently communicates to the US customers through a network of around 600 dealerships. According to Automotive News, the network won’t necessarily be boosted in next few years, but VW is aware that, at a certain point, this move has to be introduced.
Speaking of plans, the carmaker wants to almost triple is sales in America in the following seven years. Browning estimates an overall 2011 figure of 300,000 cars (up from last year’s 256,830 units) and expects things to climb up to 800,000 units in by 2018. In addition to that, the executive said that the current year will be the first profitable year for VW’s US division since 2003.
