VW confirms plans to export Chattanooga-made Passat to Korea
""Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant, now producing more than 100 Passats daily, plans to sell the car in South Korea as well as in North America, the factory’s chief executive confirmed Wednesday.

Frank Fischer, CEO of VW’s Chattanooga operations, said the automaker’s sales team determined South Korea “is a very good match” for the all-new Passat.

Volkswagen initially is targeting a modest 4,000-a-year sales goal for the Asian nation, Fischer said. Plans are to start those sales in 2012, he said. In addition to the U.S., VW has said the Passat also will be sold in Canada and Mexico.""
