Manufacture of Volkswagen’s new T-Roc Cabriolet started a few days ago at the Osnabrück plant. The plant’s facilities, including the production and logistics operations, were comprehensively optimized in advance for the VW brand’s only convertible.
At the ceremonial start of manufacturing in front of staff at the plant today;-
“THE VEHICLE WAS IN LARGE PART DEVELOPED IN OSNABRÜCK. NOW IT IS BEING PRODUCED HERE TOO. IT IS A GENUINE CHILD OF THE SITE. A SITE THAT IN THE PROCESS HAS BEEN ABLE TO FULLY DEMONSTRATE ITS STRENGTHS. THE TEAM DID A LOT OF WORK TO BRING THE T-ROC CABRIOLET HERE AND ARE NOW FINALLY REAPING THE REWARD FOR THEIR EFFORTS. PRODUCTION, ASSEMBLY AND LOGISTICS HAVE BEEN EXTENSIVELY MODERNISED FOR A HIGH DOUBLE-DIGIT MILLION EURO AMOUNT AND ARE OF AN EXCELLENT STANDARD. OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS TOO WE WILL BE INVESTING FURTHER IN THE SITE ON A SIMILAR SCALE – PREDOMINANTLY IN THE PRODUCTION OF THE T-ROC CABRIOLET.”ANDREAS TOSTMANN, VOLKSWAGEN MANAGEMENT BOARD MEMBER – PRODUCTION
“WE’VE GOT A LONG TRADITION OF MAKING CONVERTIBLES HERE AT THE OSNABRÜCK SITE. IT’S ONE OF OUR CORE AREAS OF EXPERTISE. THE ENTIRE TEAM IS PROUD TO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF MAKING THE VOLKSWAGEN BRAND’S ONLY CONVERTIBLE. WE WORKED HARD FOR IT.”JÖRG MÜLLER, MANAGEMENT TEAM SPOKESPERSON
The Volkswagen’s T-Roc Cabriolet is the soft-top variation of the successful Crossover T-Roc, which was added to the VW brand product portfolio in November 2017. The new convertible with SUV genes offers a striking design, raised seating position and high level of functionality. Open-air enjoyment starts at the press of a button, with the soft top opening in just nine seconds.
In addition to the T-Roc Cabriolet the multi-brand Osnabrück plant also manufactures the Porsche Cayman.
