Volkswagen is thinking about moving production of its Tiguan trucklet to North America. Plans for the move are being discussed by Wolfsburg management, the German magazine Wirtschaftswoche reports.

“North America” could be Puebla in Mexico (Jetta) or Chattanooga in the Volunteer State (Passat.) Currently, the Tiguan is produced in Wolfsburg only.

There are two reasons for moving production across the Atlantic:

  • Production would be cheaper and more profitable. Currently, Volkswagen is losing money stateside.
  • The Tiguan is in high demand and German capacities are maxed out. There are long waits for the small SUV.
