Volkswagen ‘American Jetta’ shows up in China Again
Published on May 19, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots show the American Jetta testing in China. Volkswagen is currently selling two Jetta’s in China: the ancient original and the European Jetta called Sagitair. Both are made by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. The American Jetta will be made by FAW-Volkswagen as well and will either succeed the Sagitair or will be a new addition to Volkswagen’s China line.
The Sagitair was listed in China in 2006 so a replacement should be on its way. But the European Jetta is a much more expensive car than the American Jetta. Volkswagen could replace the Sagitair and sell the American Jetta under yet another name. We have to wait and see.
