Volkswagen has just announced a piece of news extremely important to their factories in Spain. Not only it was just announced that the investments of the German mark are guaranteed, that after the scandal of the diesel uncovered in the united States feared they were in danger, but also that there will be new investment. And there will be new investments because the factory of Landaben, Navarra, will for the first time, a second model from 2018, a model derived from the family Volkswagen Polo, as up to now will continue to produced in this factory. Recall that the Volkswagen Polo is produced for all over the world in Landaben since 1984.
