Volkswagen is Searching for a Place to Build Scout Vehicles

Volkswagen is focusing now more than ever on the North American market for both passenger and commercial vehicles


  • Sites are being considered in the US.

  • Volkswagen Scout models will include trucks and SUVs.


Volkswagen is serious about its North American intentions as it is shopping for another site for a factory where it will build its Scout vehicles. Globally, the war in Ukraine and sales and market share declines in China, among other “issues” have made the US a safer market to focus on to strengthen its future.

Confirmed: Volkswagen will Revive the Scout Name

Chattanooga has already been considered for a battery plant site and was mentioned as part of VW’s EV expansion plans. This time, the search for a new location for another plant is underway however this facility is earmarked for the German automaker’s latest efforts – they are bringing back the Scout name.

The latter was confirmed and is an integral part of VW’s broader efforts to expand its presence in the U.S. market. These efforts include passenger and commercial vehicles as well according to Automotive News.
