VW new Passat breaks record on debut with 30 million vehicles worldwide
On April 3, the Passat broke the 30-million-model mark for production since its launch 46 years ago in the Volkswagen plant at Emden.
The bestseller set a new record in its segment: no other mid-range model globally has been sold more often than the Passat.
The 30,000,000th vehicle - a Passat GTE Variant with a plug-in hybrid drive - is already one of the first models in a new evolutionary stage to feature an extensive technical update (European presales will begin in May).
The 30 millionth Passat will be used as a press and test vehicle for the international media over the coming months.
