This Volkswagen Passat assembly plant opened in 2011. The first car, a 2012 Night Blue Metallic Passat SEL, rolled off the assembly line on April 18, 2011. Motor Trend magazine named the Passat the 2012 Car of the Year.
This became the first automotive plant in the world to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum certification, the highest level given by the organization.
In addition to producing cars for the United States, this plant also exports to Mexico, Canada, South Korea, and the Middle East.
